Dior in Me - Camille Miceli's 'half-half' Necklace! Xx

Dior in Me, the space age style, 
1960s inspired bib necklace
 was the star accessory of Raf Simons’ first 
ready-to-wear SS13 show for the house of Dior.

The fully metallic version is exclusively 
distributed in certain stores, 
divided by colour according to geographical zone.

bringing together traditional craft
techniques and avant-garde design in a single object.
Half lacquered metal, half crystal-set plexiglas,
