Why we have selected this book:

Even though it seems that everything has already been written about the most renowned designer of the 20th century, this beautiful issue offers something especially valuable: a deeper delving into the ‘biographies’ of attire, exploring the structure and construction, nuances of making and Dior’s innovative approaches. This far, it was only an privilege of collectors and museum curators.
