Dior x Bernardaud, an Ode to French Savoir-Faire

This holiday season, the House of Dior promotes French savoir-faire and heritage with a renewed collaboration with Bernardaud, master in the art of porcelain since 1863, to bring to light a limited series of magnificent porcelain lithophanes.

Created in the 19th century, this traditional technique sees patterns engraved on unglazed porcelain, a very specific ceramic composed mainly of kaolin. To obtain a perfect white and translucent piece, it is fired twice at more than 1000 degrees for more than 24hours. The delicate design is then revealed by the light of the La Collection Privée 30 Montaigne candle.

For this Holiday limited-edition, the Bernardaud ateliers have created three domes: the first one embodies the façade of 30 Avenue Montaigne, the House’s first address and a sanctuary of wonders, while the two others feature illustrations of the Tuileries Garden, a pattern exclusively created by Pietro Ruffo.
