Description

A sumptuous treasury of Dior scarves.

Plain and elaborate, commonplace and precious, fashionable and timeless, masculine and feminine: Dior’s silk scarves form a unique visual repertoire and cover a gamut of palettes, themes and styles. The epitome of Parisian chic, they express the poetic imagination of the creative directors who have shaped the destiny of the house, from Christian Dior to Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Unveiling the history and artistry of Dior’s scarves from the first designs to today, this sumptuous book celebrates their incredible variety and beauty as never before. At its heart is an atlas of over 400 scarves, organized by theme and printed on a delicate paper that replicates the texture of the scarves themselves. Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, who has overseen the creation of this volume, contributes a foreword. The atlas is supplemented by exclusive visual essays from renowned photographers Brigitte Niedermair and Pol Baril, as well as texts by distinguished fashion historians Maria Luisa Frisa, Claire Allen-Johnstone, Elda Danese and Emilie Hammen.

From vibrant opulence to graphic harmony, every scarf conveys a mood and every one tells a story. Those stories are now brought together in a book that will delight all aficionados of this symbol of timeless elegance.
