Must-Have Fashion Book of 2017: The House of Dior

“Haute couture dresses have the unique and extraordinary character of art objects,” Christian Dior said. “They are among the last remaining things to be made by hand, by human hands whose value remains irreplaceable for they endow everything they create with qualities that a machine could never give them: poetry and life.” More than eleven inches wide by fourteen inches tall, this beautifully produced, 256-page, seventy-year retrospective of The House of Dior is a dream of fashion scholarship, effortlessly spanning from Dior’s first collection in 1947 through the eras of Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simmons and today’s Maria Grazia Chiuri. You can't go wrong with this Staff Favorite Holiday Gift Book for 2017.
