PARIS — Dior has more to say about roses. It’s set to be a lasting season for the beloved, prickly stemmed beauty with the unveiling of the house’s largest high jewelry collection this week in Chengdu, called “Dior Rose.” In March, designer Victoire de Castellane showed figurative pieces drawn from the flower theme in a collection dubbed “RoseDior” — a decade after the house’s “Bal de Roses” collection.

The collection also included lace-like abstract couture pieces, built from symmetric rows of round-cut diamonds.
Playing with asymmetry, Gem Dior pieces carried diamonds cut in various sizes and shapes.
The collection debuted at the Chengdu Contemporary Image museum, at a diner with 120 guests. Models weaved through the tables, wearing draped dresses designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, artistic director for women’s collections at Dior.

In order to reach deep-pocketed clients grounded from travel by the pandemic, Place Vendôme jewelers have been shipping their pieces to China, serving clients in their home markets. Last year, Dior presented de Castellane’s bright tie-dye-inspired jewelry collection to Shanghai, showing it on models wearing Grecian couture looks designed by Chiuri.
