The Incredible Dior Photography Book

Florence Muller is an art and fashion historian and curator of numerous important exhibitions. She is a professor at the Institut Francais de la Mode and also the author of many publications on fashion, art, and design. Reaching beyond the intimate setting of the fashion show, in this incredible book (published by Rizzoli) the photographer paints a portrait of haute couture that takes the couturier’s intention to enchant the public and elevates it to the level of the sublime. The great names in photography, the mythical photos that have constructed Dior’s image, and the emblematic subjects of the house’s iconography—whether they are dreams of a faraway place or captured in the vast open-sky “studios” of Paris or Versailles—are all evoked in this vast panorama that takes us through more than sixty years in the history of fashion photography. Published to accompany the Dior and Fashion Photography exhibition presented at the Musée Christian Dior in Granville, France, this lavish volume presents a wealth of gorgeous photographs that bring the character of the couturier’s dresses to life, with each photographer interpreting them in his or her unique style. Legendary contributors include Horst P. Horst, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Cecil Beaton, Norman Parkinson, Henry Clarke, William…

Fashion books: The World according to Karl

The World according to Karl(published by Flammarion) was written by Sandrine Gulbenkian, director of the French publisher Parigramme and by Patrick Mauries editor and author of Jewelry by Chanel. The graphism of the book was made by Charles Ameline, a contemporary illustrator. The World according to Karl is a collection of quotes that pays homage to the legendary éminence grise of the fashion world. Lagerfeld’s pronouncements on fashion, women, art, politics, love, and life high and low – are famously oracular, seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes and sages around the world. Karl Lagerfeld‘s quick wit and silver tongue are as notorious as Chanel‘s quilted handbag. This book is a cornucopia of his Karlisms: cultivated, unpredictable, provocative, sometimes shocking, but always impossible to ignore. Karl Lagerfeld is a modern master of couture. While simultaneously running Chanel, Fendi, and his own eponymous fashion house, he has consistently re-invented trends on the catwalk and in the street for half a century. His wise, surprising statements pop up like offbeat news flashes and are regularly seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes, and sages the world over. Here, in his own deadpan words, are his exacting opinions on everything-from fashion, style, women, and Chanel to fame, life, and books….

by Christian Louboutin (Author), Philippe Garcia (Photographer), David Lynch (Photographer), John Malkovich(Foreword), Eric Reinhardt (Contributor) Christian Louboutin, one of the world’s most celebrated shoe designers, has completed his first book. This stunning volume, with a fanciful and intricate pop-up, an elaborate foldout cover, and dramatic still-life photography, evokes the artistry and theatricality of Louboutin’s shoe designs that are closely associated with Hollywood starlets. Celebrated for his vertiginously high stilettos with their signature lacquer-red soles, Louboutin has achieved cult status with celebrities as well as fashionistas. His eclectic and exotic designs, often incorporating feathers, beads, and sequins, are a constant and dramatic presence on the red carpet and in nightclubs and restaurants the world over. Louboutin’s first book highlights the extraordinary range of his couture, from his iconic and glamorous creations to his fetishistic pieces, including his collaborations with David Lynch, meant more for the bedroom than the street. New photography captures Louboutin’s artistic sensibilities, while an in-depth interview reveals Louboutin’s life, travels, and inspirations, presenting a very personal look at the man behind the shoes. A work of art in itself, with a five-piece foldout binding and a pop-up, Christian Louboutin is an enticing and revelatory look at the most important luxury shoe designer of our day. The book…
