Time to shine.
Feel the need to inject a little luxury into your Thursday? Well you’re in luck, as British e-commerce giant Farfetch has just announced the launch of a rare collection of jewellery from the Christian Dior archives.
Available on site now, the collection was curated in partnership with Susan Caplan, one of the UK’s most renowned vintage jewellers. All meticulously preserved, many of the 80 pieces on offer have never been worn before.
The collection includes rings, brooches, earrings and necklaces dating from 1976 to 1998, and each handmade piece features Swarovski crystal detailing. Given the timeframe, the pieces were created during the Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré or John Galliano eras. Edwardian influences can be seen in the Galliano pieces, whilst the ultra-feminine designs come courtesy of Ferré.
The company says the capsule provides consumers with the opportunity to shop consciously. Maxim de Turckheim at Farfetch said in a release, “Recently we have seen an increased interest in archive, special pieces as customers are looking to make more conscious choices.” Caplan agrees, saying, “[Farfetch’s] vision for a more sustainable fashion future is one we share and so to be able to offer their customers access to such a significant slice of Christian Dior history, as well as an opportunity to make a conscious purchase, is something I am very proud of.”
Discover some of the pieces below (prices range from CAD$690-$6,974), and then shop your favourites.
This is the latest partnership from Farfetch, who recently teamed up with Gucci to bring its Open House concept to Toronto, tapping local artists Just John and Maya Fuhr for the editorial.
