Video: Dior Haute Joiallerie – Bal de roses

Musee Rodin, Paris. Dior Haute Joiallerie presentation by Victoaire de Castellane

Johan Strauss’s music – the Blue Danube – was the soundtrack for screening a real waltz of the Dior jewels.

Bal Champêtre, Bal Bleu Nuit, Bal de Paris, Bal D’Autrefois, Bal Venetien, Bal D’Été, Bal Romantique, Bal de L’Opéra and Bal de Mai went through soft and successive transformations so naturally that I lost track of the number of movies seen. Finally, I woke back from the dream and left the Dior movie theatre, (reluctantly) giving my seat to other guests.

While daydreaming of opulent rings, I was walked to a garden governed by hundreds of pink roses. They meant to further cultivate the paradisiacal ambiance shown on the screens inside, in the whirling coming and going of the waiters serving sweets and soft drinks.

No sooner had I gone past the gate of the Musee Rodin that I started writing a letter to Santa about my gift preferences for the next Christmas. I was in such a hurry because I wouldn’t have wanted him put on a waiting list, considering that the pieces in question are one-off items.

One of the necklaces, worth around one million two hundred euro, had already been bought even before the presentation began. The other pieces will land in several strategic places in the mighty world of finance, first station: East Asia.

Now it’s clear, I hope, why I didn’t want to take any risks. Last year I made the same wish, only the collection differed. And Santa didn’t even bother to answer my letter.

Odd! I’m beginning to think I’m being sabotaged by one of his crew members.
