It was two years ago that Didier Guillon, president and artistic director of Valmont Group, launched the Dragon Trilogy in tribute to wife Sophie, Valmont Group’s fiery CEO, who was born in the year of the dragon.
Next month, Valmont will release the final piece in the Dragon Trilogy — the Blue Dragon Edition. The jewelry box — which Didier Guillon designed out of cobalt blue Murano glass in collaboration with glassmaker Leonardo Cimolin — is inspired by the stately, protective dragons of Ming Dynasty porcelain and contains the luxe Swiss skincare line’s Elixir des Glaciers Votre Visage (50 ml), whose scent and radiance are heavenly.
Even heaven has a price tag, which in this case is $775 for the limited-edition creation. Only 100 have been made and they’ll be available at the Spa Valmont for Hôtel Plaza Athénée New York.
In the meantime, Valmont lovers can indulge in its new Anti-Wrinkle Firmness (AWF5) skincare collection, which consists of the V-Line Lifting and the V-Line Filling products. Each comes in a concentrate or face serum, a face cream and an eye cream or balm. The lifting products ($230-$295) are designed to smooth out those wrinkles and fine lines while firming. The filling products ($235 to $320) tighten, adding density and volume to those creases that frame the nose (the nasolabial folds) and sink the eyes.
