Oh, the things that Christian Dior could do with a bolt of fabric.
Created to his exacting standards inside the ateliers of 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris, textiles were transformed into fairytale creations with tailoring so impeccable that his ‘New Look’ became the gold standard in silhouettes, thereby revolutionizing the way women dressed. Humble taffetas, whimsical tulle, and stiff percales were elevated by Dior’s uncompromising craftsmanship, so why shouldn’t the same standards apply to the brand’s luxurious watch output?
Inspired by the magical way Mr. Dior worked with textiles, the ‘La D de Dior Satine Tressée’ timepiece reimagines the traditional watch as deriving from a satin ribbon – except this dazzling and delicate timepiece is actually woven from gold and steel threads. As the latest addition to the brand’s ‘La D de Satine’ watch collection, the ‘Tressée’ style is a mesmerizing tribute to both superlative form and flawless function.
In addition to the new watch, the collection includes a variety of gorgeous timepieces with bands created from a glistening steel mesh that is so finely woven as to actually become its own form of fabric. These exquisite watches are drenched in diamonds but bear minimal faces with only four diamond hour markers and the Dior logo.
