Description

Product Description

“[A]n extraordinary collection of 1,146 images that document the house''s output over the past 70 years and through seven creative directors.”—Vogue

In spring 1947, Christian Dior presented the first collection of his newly founded eponymous fashion house. Soon dubbed the "New Look," it grabbed headlines all over the world and turned Dior into one of the most influential brands of all time. After the couturier''s untimely death in 1957, Yves Saint Laurent took the helm of the fashion house before being succeeded by Marc Bohan, who was in turn replaced by Gianfranco Ferré in 1989. In 1996, John Galliano was appointed creative director, designing flamboyant collections for a decade, before the arrival of Raf Simon in 2012, who gave the house a newly imagined identity for the 21st century. Maria Grazia Chiuri''s arrival in 2017 as the first woman designer in Dior''s history also marks the seventieth anniversary of the "New Look." 

For the first time, every Dior haute couture collection is gathered here in a single, lavishly illustrated volume--providing a unique opportunity to chart the development of one of the world''s most famous fashion brands and to discover rarely seen collections.   Dior: The Complete Collections opens with a concise history of the house of Dior before exploring the collections themselves, which are organized chronologically. Each new "era" in Dior''s history is inaugurated by a brief overview and biography of the new designer, while individual collections are introduced by a short text unveiling their influences and highlights and illustrated with carefully curated catwalk images. A rich reference section, including an extensive index, concludes this definitive publication.

Poor quality
Reviewed in the United States on September 20, 2019
I was so excited to receive my product, but was ultimately disappointed with the quality. Not only was there a black “x” mark across the pages, but there was also bits and pieces of a bug within the wrapper!!! How is this even possible?!

I was disappointed that so few images for each couture collection were presented. For example, the "Madame Butterfly ''07" collection (arguably one of JG''s best) was only represented by 11 dresses. I was hoping to see many more, even if it meant the photos were smaller. The photos are not the best quality, mainly because they were shot live. I wish Dior would produce a better, more comprehensive volume(s) of their couture with better photos -- who really cares that much about documenting the ready-to-wear! Museums do it with their artwork and produce catalogues of their exhibitions with professionally shot work, why can''t one of the world''s largest fashion houses do the same?

Comes with marks.

Like other reviewers I have had issues. I ordered the first book- had a black mark (photo 1). Ordered a replacement- had another black mark (photo 2). Ordered one more for a final attempt at receiving a new, undamaged book.

Excellent, beautifully illustrated review of the collections presented by the house of Dior from 1947 to 2017.

I thought it was odd, however, that only the ready to wear collections from the time Galliano was appointed as creative director onward were featured. I would have preferred it if all of the ready to wear collections had been included because the way the book was created gave the impression that Dior didn''t present ready to wear collections until Galliano joined the house.

The plastic wrap came damaged but luckily the book wasn’t dirty or affected in any way. The book is very sturdy and a very good size for a coffee table book. I would consider this a must-have for those interested in fashion

Dior is a name synonymous with fashion and this book doesn’t disappoint. It catalogues every moment of the Houses milestones. The photos are first rate. I’d recommend this book.

Il libro in sè è ottimo. Ma l’imballaggio Amazon è stato davvero un flop. Lo scatolo tutto rotto, il libro senza nessuna protezione il chè ha concorso ha rovinare tutto l’angolo inferiore del libro stesso.
