While art has its own ways to explore every possible medium with elements outside its fields, it’s not easy to find a pair such as jewelry and vintage photography.
Nevertheless, this is what happened in the magical house of Dior. It all started when jewelry designer Victoire De Castellane, famous for her love of statement pieces and sparkles, produced the stunning collection Archi Dior. And it is not just Dior jewelry by name: every shape and structure has been inspired by the house’s best couture pieces, following strong lines and softer curves, creating inspiring works from this inspiration.
It was then photographer Linder Sterling who put together the statement pieces and the photographs (directly from the original 1940s archives) which inspired them to create beautiful, eccentric collages. These creations allow the viewer to follow the same lines of thought which brought the jeweller De Castellane to the finite and cutting edge shapes of her designs. In a series that Sterling herself defines “dreamlike”, the artist explores forms and proportions, putting beauty on beauty.
