"An extraordinary book celebrating the unique connection between the House of Dior and the United States. Published on the occasion of the retrospective staged at the Brooklyn Museum, this new title chronicles the history of the House of Dior from 1947, when Chris-tian Dior heralded the birth of a new era of elegance with his revolutionary New Look, to the present day, with a special focus on the House's legacy in America. Featuring a sophisticated Swiss binding, this book presents the exhibition's highlights with creations by Christian Dior and the artistic directors who succeeded him: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia Chiuri. Captured by artist Katerina Jebb, some of the House's most legendary designs are displayed in highly unique images. A portfolio of iconic photographs by American masters--including Richard Avedon, Cass Bird, Henry Clarke, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Zoë Ghertner, Ethan James Green, Tyler Mitchell, Irving Penn, and many more--underscores Dior's undeniable cultural influence."--Provided by publisher.
