Dior VIII for Luxurious Christian Dior Watches Collection
VIII, like the 8thOctober 1946: the day the house of Christian Dior was founded. VIII, like the 8tharrondissement of Paris: its home since the very beginning.
VIII, like 8 place Vendôme: the address of the jewelry and timepieces store since 2001. VIII, like En 8: the name of the first haute couture collection, in 1947, in which the silhouette, with its exaggerated hips and “brazen bust”, as Christian Dior himself said, unmistakably recalls the numeral’s feminine curves.
VIII, of course, like the couturier’s lucky number. 8, most of all, like Dior VIII: this ceramic watch collection in which everything reminds us of Christian Dior haute couture: the mechanism’s oscillating weight is a ballgown, the colored stones are cocktail dresses, and then there’s the strap and the bezel whose relief motifs allude to the woven caning of the Napoleon III chairs upon which show guests sat during the couturier’s time. dior.com
