The (a)symmetry of Victoire de Castellane

At Dior, Victoire de Castellane is particularly fond of applying asymmetry to earrings. She in on a quest for the quirky, seeking balance in imbalance. While keeping the same materials, she plays with scale, reverses the colors of precious stones or sets off a difference in shape with an identical construction. With Victoire de Castellane, a pair of earrings no longer consists of inseparable twins.
