Christian Dior

Dior as designer, collector and art dealer: a panoramic exploration of the legendary designer’s world

This volume features around 120 haute couture designs by Christian Dior from the collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and the House of Dior—including archival runway prototype and custom garments—showcased alongside fashion photography, film stills, vintage perfume, cosmetics and original sketches, Dior’s furniture and other decorative pieces that demonstrate the designer’s passion for collecting and his time as an art dealer.
The items reproduced here thus offer an overview of Dior’s life and character, as well as his haute couture creations since 1947, always the epitome of modern elegance, with the selection taking as its unifying thread the fabric of dreams and the passing on of an aesthetic vision.
Christian Dior was born in Granville, a seaside town on the coast of Normandy, France, in 1904. While his family had hoped that he would become a diplomat, Dior preferred art. His preternatural talent resulted in him being hired by Robert Piquet in 1937, and he subsequently worked alongside Pierre Balmain and Lucien Lelong. Dior was an instant sensation after the Second World War. His designs, which asserted femininity, were a strong rebuke to the utilitarian, unisex clothing of wartime Europe, and came to symbolize the “New Look.” Since his untimely death in 1957, an exceptional series of creative directors have imprinted their own style upon the iconic brand.

A panoramic new exploration of Christian Dior

A panoramic new exploration of Christian Dior

“Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity,” Christian Dior said in 1954. “Outside this, believe me, there is no elegance. Only pretension.” Featured photograph—of Dior reviewing original sketches in 1949—is reproduced from Silvana’s super-gifty, 504-page survey, published to accompany a recent exhibition at the M7 Qatar Museum for innovation in design, fashion and technology in Doha. Featuring 120 haute couture designs from the House of Dior under all of its creative directors, 1947 to now, alongside fashion photography, film stills, vintage perfume, cosmetics, sketches, furniture and decorative arts, this book is an elegant design object in and of itself, with black printed edges and a 1949 sketch by Dior animating the spine. continue to blog
