A timely celebration of one of the world’s greatest couture houses, which combines Christian Dior’s classics with the newest creations, published to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Christian Dior’s first collection.
In this lavish collection Jérôme Gautier collects the outstanding elements of Dior’s style for every generation since 1947, pairing classic and contemporary photographs together with some exquisite rarities. Christian Dior’s “New Look” amazed the world as it emerged after wartime austerity, and reset the boundaries of modern elegance. Dior’s search for the perfect line and the ideal silhouette continues with couturiers of the first rank: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia Chiuri have all made their distinctive contribution. In these pages, the most beautiful fashion plates from Dior’s own time sit beside examples of the house’s creations from each decade. This beautiful volume honors and celebrates Dior past and present with undisputed elegance and panache.
