Peter Lindbergh photographed DIOR’s most exceptional muses and signed campaigns for Lady Dior and J’Adore with his inimitable style. Throughout his career, the photographer was one of the house’s closest collaborators.
Seventy years of DIOR history projected against the effervescence of Times Square, New York: this was the concept behind Lindbergh’s project, extraordinary both in scope and dimension, for which DIOR, in an unusual move, allowed an unprecedented number of priceless garments to be taken from its vaults in Paris and shipped across the Atlantic.
In snatches of street scenes, models flit through crowds and scaffolding, are reflected in building façades, and draped in haute couture, from pieces hand-sewn by Christian Diorto more recent designs by Maria Grazia Chiuri. Lindbergh’s trademark monochrome and color photographs masterfully highlight the intricacies, silhouettes, and textures of each garment.
Lindbergh himself is present in every aspect of this two-volume publication designed by his long-time collaborator and friend Juan Gatti. This final book was an original cocreation that was close to the artist’s heart. A breathtaking tribute to two pillars of fashion and photography and their timeless collaborations.
The photographer: Peter Lindbergh (1944–2019) was a master of his craft who has made his mark in the halls of photography history, with such credits as shooting the first American Vogue cover under Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, bringing together for the first time a group of young women who would become the ’90s supermodels, and numerous exhibitions at renowned institutions including Victoria & Albert Museum in London and Centre Pompidou in Paris, as well as in solo exhibitions at Hamburger Bahnhof, the Berlin Museum for Contemporary Art, Bunkamura Museum of Art in Tokyo, and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow
