Dior Maison 7, Jules-Sandeau
In a nod to Christian Dior’s apartment at 7, Boulevard Jules Sandeau in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, Dior Maison’s creative director Cordelia de Castellane designed a new tableware collection inspired by the address. Whimsical flowers and birds like clematis, peonies, dahlias and swallows adorn porcelain plates and hand-painted linen place mats and are also enclosed inside carafes and decorative glass balls. Three candleholders in matching shades complete the collection.

Versace x Venini
Since 1997, Murano glassmaker Venini and the house of Versace have come together to showcase the excellence of Italian craftsmanship through collaborative glass creations. Their latest partnership sees three new designs: VVV, SMOKING and GESSATO (pictured from left). Each was made using different processing techniques such as Canne for SMOKING, which is characterised by round, pulled glass rod elements being bundled together, fused and then blown.
