Dior: New Looks
Thames & Hudson, London, 2015
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 and John Galliano 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, including the newest models by today’s designer-in-chief, Raf Simons.
The legendary fashion house continues to represent the best taste in couture, honouring the past – as Christian Dior himself did in the 1940s and 1950s – and celebrating the present with undisputed elegance and panache.
