Recognized all over the world for her role as Daenerys Targaryen, heroine of one of the hottest series of our time, “Game of Thrones”, Emilia Clarke has become the new face of the Christian Dior Rose des Vents jewelry collection. In the campaign images lensed by the legendary French fashion and portrait photographer Patrick Demarchelier, the Emmy-nominated actress appears natural, exhibiting a timeless beauty that echoes the Rose des Vents creations. In the campaign, Emilia Clarke opts for a white Dior shirt, which she unbuttons to show off her Rose des Vents necklace. This young woman possesses a freshness and a communicative openness that has everyone around her utterly charmed.
The Christian Dior Rose des Vents jewelry collection develops the motif and broadens the horizons of the medallion jewel. It all began at Granville, in the villa where Christian Dior had spent his childhood. Overlooking the sea, perched on a cliff-top, it was named Les Rhumbs, the name given to the thirty-two divisions of the wind rose (the ‘rose des vents’ in French). Some years later, in Paris, it was as the result of chancing upon a somewhat mysterious star on the ground that the highly superstitious Christian Dior decided to open his own couture house, interpreting this find as a portent of his destiny. And it’s also from Paris, his lucky star in his pocket, he set off on the four winds to discover the world and present his collections. All these stories are contained within the Rose des Vents collection by Victoire de Castellane. “I wanted to move on from the idea of a little motif pendant. And what is more allegorical than a medallion?” asks the Creative Director of Dior Joaillerie. “In this symbol of travel we find Christian Dior’s star, and the idea of a good-luck charm, but also the rose, his favorite flower. The whole history of the House is hinted at.”
The collection features bracelets, necklaces long and short, as well as bracelets in white gold and mother-of-pearl, yellow gold and lapis lazuli, turquoise and mother-of-pearl; or rose gold and onyx and pink opal. The jewels have the delicacy of a gentle story quietly whispered.
