In 2018 Monnaie de Paris and the world-famous design house Dior collaborated to create a piece of packaging that is an expression of French luxury know-how.
The aim of the trunk-shaped case is to inspire collecting. It is similar to the trunks used to store and protect dresses from the designer and highlights the aesthetic codes central to Christian Dior. These include the houndstooth design used in his work, the couture bow and the iconic suit-shaped bottle of the fragrance Miss Dior, as well as the roses of Grasse that go into the fragrance.
The case is accompanied by a pair of gloves (essential to its handling), a brochure, a certificate of authenticity and an original work designed and signed by the artist Xavier Casalta.
