Blooming – if we will – with color and inspiration, this chic coffee table tome is a joyous celebration of legendary French fashion designer Christian Dior’s love of all things floral and the inextricable link between flowers and his beloved creations. A captivating portfolio of renowned photographer Nick Knight’s take on roses, it includes images of fabrics and embroidery in breathtaking detail, as well as portraits of the designer and his models, sketches, landscapes that inspired him and previously unpublished documents from the House’s archives.
You can also expect things like charts that show which flowers are used to make each of Dior’s iconic perfumes (the designer famously said perfume was “a door opening into a hidden world,” and his first, Miss Dior, was inspired by the lush gardens of his childhood home in Normandy. Take a small peek of what you’ll find inside below!
