Dior: New Looks

Product Number: 569750
Christian Dior had a dream run, achieving immortality with his very first Paris runway collection in 1947, which introduced the New Look to delight the world after the austerity of war time.

Few designers can lay claim to the sort of success that Christian Dior enjoyed, perhaps because of this unique set of circumstances.

This book, Dior New Looks, written Jérôme Gautier – an expert on the history of fashion - details Dior’s search for the perfect line and the ideal silhouette. It also looks at the influence of several of the fashion house’s most celebrated couturiers including Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano and Raf Simons, who all made their distinctive contributions.

The photographs, by some of the world’s best including Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon. Bert Stern, Bruce Weber, Irving Penn and Snowdon are also worth the investment in this book.  

Interestingly what comes across is how timeless the beauty represented here is when compared to the present age..   
If this impressive book won’t fit on your coffee table, then you may consider buying a new table.
