Dior. New Looks

(Compact Edition)

ISBN: 9780500025048 (HB - EN)

Published to mark the 75th anniversary of one of the world's greatest couture houses, this gorgeous book combines Christian Dior's classics with the newest creations. Christian Dior achieved immortality with his first collection in 1947. His '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 has been celebrated by 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. This book honours Dior's influence by celebrating the elements of style for every generation since 1947, through inspired pairings of classic and contemporary photographs. Six thematic chapters express outstanding Dior characteristics, including the silhouette, the evening gown and the eternal muse - in short, the aspects of the House that lend it unique distinction both then and now. The most beautiful fashion plates from Dior's own time sit beside examples of the house's creations through the decades. The resonance between classic archive photographs and the latest most up-to-date frames is clear and compelling.
