“Whatever you do – for work or pleasure – do it with passion ! Live with passion” as Christian Dior used to say.
The new Tete de Mort collection designed by Victoire de Castellane is inspired by this love of life and reinterprets the Latin sayings “Memento Mori” and “Carpe Diem”, two precepts reminding us to live each moment to the full.
This year, the dials are decorated with mysterious characters that do not reveal all their secrets at first glance. Upon closer observation, we discover that the piece with the mauve skull is decorated with a tiny clover in tsavorite garnets, a nod at one of Christian Dior’s favourite lucky charms. The other piece in pink mother-of-pearl is adorned with a crown, symbol of royalty and Versailles.
Behind the choice of colours lies a new enigma, as each shade symbolizes a state of mind : peace with the powdery pink and balance with the delicate violet. All together, the interplay of colours creates a surprising and unique collection that plunges us into the heart of Swiss watchmaking know-how and the poetic and playful world of Victoire de Castellane.
