Victoire de Castellane just launched her Surrealism Spring jewellery called Fleurs d’excès. For those who are not familiar with that word, Surrealism is a culture movement that began in 1924, it is an imaginary from the subconscious mind to create art without the intention of logical comprehensibility. The greatest known surrealist artist is Salvador Dali followed by Rene Magritte, Max Ernst, Giorgio de Chirico, etc.
Below are the gorgeous collection by Victoire de Castellane and each piece was taken from different inspiration and has its own story
Inspired from the hallucinations effect from poisonous mushroom and also from the smoking caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland
"The little flowers of the cannabis, the camouflage in the lacquer, the cucumber jasper like curling smoke rings"
"Crac Bouminalum, the title combines the memory of a striptease artist called Trucula Popo-her spectacular ass plus the metal used to make garbage cans!"
Heroina Romanticam Dolorosa is on the mortuary slab, in the process of dying from an overdose. Her life is ebbing; she is getting cold. There is a part of her that still glimmers, a little bit of life remaining, but her blood is draining away
evokes the madness of te drug, which recreates the dizziness brought on by turning around and around and around, as children do because the excitation is so extreme and it feels so good
Opiom Velourosa Purpra is full of life, a voluptuous woman stretched out in her boudoir, vicid, decadent, flushed. The ambience is heavy, charged, and sophisticated.
Represents the energies of the night, of superficial and artificial relations, abundance with incoherence, the illusion of dancing on the moon beneath the nightclub mirabelle
A very nice and elegant collection, they look more like art instead of jewellery. If I had one of those ring, I wouldn't wear it often, because I don't want to scratch them, too beautiful to wear
