de Castellane's “Fleurs d’excès”

PARIS - Opening March 2nd Victoire de Castellane will exhibit her new jewelry collection “Fleurs d’excès” (Flowers of Excess) with a show at Gagosian Gallery. Known for her candy-colored creations, the project mines all of the hallucinogenic allusions from her earlier work to create complete pharmacopeia that blurs distinctions between the real and the artificial, the beautiful and the grotesque. Inlaid with rubies, diamonds, jade and more, the intoxicating gold and silver pieces personify the romantic idea of women “under the influence.”
