Photos from Patrick Demarchelier’s Newly Released ‘Dior Couture’ Coffee Table Book

Books / December 1, 2011

Dior CoutureToday marks the premier of hailed fashion photographer, Patrick Demarchelier’s latest book, “Dior Couture” – a 100-photo retrospective of one of fashions most sojourning labels. The coffee table book includes images of Dior’s most inspired haute couture creations.

“The couture clothes to me are like art,” Demarchelier said in this month’s interview with the Wall Street Journal when asked about his photos.

The book features pieces by Christian Dior himself along with his successors, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, and, of course, John Galliano.

Dating back to 1946, the Dior designs range from being extravagant full-length designs by Dior himself, to kimono inspired jackets and latex leggings from Galliano.

Demarchelier’s photos, paired with commentary from Vanity Fair editor, Ingrid Sischy, show the progression of the fashion house, which has maintained the distinct Dior fluidity that has carried the brand for 65 years.

“It was striking to all of us how easily these looks fit together, even though some of them had been created 60 apart,” Sischy notes in the book.

One of the most celebrated collections of Parisian couture, modeled by today’s most recognizable faces, “Dior Couture” is on sale now and retails for $115, and is available where books are sold.
