Fashion and art collide in a book about couturier Christian Dior

Words by Sophie McKinley in The Lifestyle · Oct 19th, 2014

One man who understood the intricate relationship between fashion and art better than most was French fashion designer Christian Dior. A tome by Rizzoli celebrates the couturier's unique eye for design with a selection of photographs by some of the world's greatest photographers including Richard Avedon, Horst P. Horst and Helmut Newton. Edited by Florence Muller, Dior: The Legendary Images highlights Dior's exploration of the bonds between fashion and art, and the great photographers who captured this very notion. Dressed in the designer's finest garments, everything from the framing, the lighting, the staging and the refined poise of the model is perfected in the images showcased here.
