- 'The A to Z of Victoire de Castellane, Dior Joaillerie' is a hefty tome of over 400 pages that looks at the body of Victoire de Castellane’s work at the helm of the jewellery department at Christian Dior over the past twenty years.
- Spanning de Castellane’s colourful career at Dior so far, it is a voyage through her ground-breaking designs from the neon-bright, writhing, flower explosion of the Belladone Island collection shown at the Orangerie Museum in Paris in 2007 to her witty bejewelled skulls or the beautifully menacing Milly Carnivora blooms.
- Divided into two sections, the first is an alphabetical collection of her favourite words, concepts and ideas illustrated with her kooky pencil sketches, often featuring Mr Christian Dior himself. ‘C’ gives us carnivore, cocktail and crowns, a fitting welcome to the wonderful world of Victoire.
- The second half is dedicated to photographs of jewels which beam out from the glossy black pages and is almost as good seeing the real thing.
