Dior Couture in weighty tome confection

Hello world,

So I’m sure you’re all well aware of the new fashion coffee table book that’s just hit the shops. I’m not usually one for paying much attention to these types of book, what with them being ridiculously heavy and far too expensive for my liking, but this one’s a real treat.

It’s the new Dior Couture book done in collaboration with Patrick Demarchelier. He in itself is an amazing fashion photographer, but to hear he’s photographed my favourite couture house is a double bonus. These brand new photos highlight the couture pieces from this house’s archives in ways that really bring a freshness to the house of Dior’s long and illustrious career.

So here are some of my favourite images from the book, and in case you’re reading this Mum/boyfriend; this would look really great on my coffee table!

So which one is your favourite? Mine is the image with the aquamarine tulle creation where Galliano based his entire collection on florals. It was my favourite ever couture show and my favourite image now.

Until then,

Franzi

Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
