DIOR by Peter Lindbergh

An homage to fashion’s most beloved photographer
Peter Lindbergh photographed DIOR’s most exceptional muses, Marion Cotillard and Charlize Theron among them, and signed campaigns for Lady Dior and J'Adore with his inimitable style. Throughout his career, the photographer was one of the house’s closest collaborators. This final book was an original cocreation that was close to the artist’s heart—and to ours.

Seventy years of DIOR history projected against the effervescence of Times Square, New York: this was the concept behind Lindbergh’s project, extraordinary both in scope and dimension, for which DIOR, in an unusual move, allowed an unprecedented number of priceless garments to be taken from its vaults in Paris and shipped across the Atlantic.

The result is electric. Amid the frenzy of Times Square, Alek Wek glows in the immaculate 1947 Bar suit, the storied ensemble that launched the House of DIOR. In snatches of street scenes, models Saskia de Brauw, Karen Elson, and Amber Valletta flit through crowds and scaffolding, are reflected in building façades, and draped in haute couture, from pieces hand-sewn by Christian Dior to more recent designs by Maria Grazia Chiuri. Lindbergh’s trademark monochrome and color photographs masterfully highlight the intricacies, silhouettes, and textures of each garment.

Lindbergh himself is present in every aspect of this two-volume publication designed by his long-time collaborator and friend Juan Gatti. Volume one features 165 never-before-published images from the shoot, including an introduction by Martin Harrison. Volume two pays homage to Lindbergh’s profound relationship with the Parisian House by curating more than 100 of his photographs of DIOR creations, from haute couture to ready-to-wear, men’s and women’s, originally published in some of the world’s most prestigious magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. A breathtaking tribute to two pillars of fashion and photography and their timeless collaborations.

This book is great, is not just a book made for Dior, this book is first of all about the art of Peter Lindbergh. Two hardcover volumes, cloth bound printed on high quality paper (different sorts - adapted for the image or kind of print) it comes in an hard slipcover that is also embossed! Well done and one of the best Peter Lindbergh's books out there.

Wie der Stoff aus dem die Kleider sind

Thilo, October 29, 2021
... so könnte man beginnen den ersten Eindruck zu beschreiben, wenn man das Buch aus seiner bewusst sehr schlicht gehaltenen beigen Umverpackung entnimmt. Durchaus ein gut gewähltes Medium, um so ausdrucksstarke Bilder richtig zur Geltung kommen zu lassen.
