Thursday May 3, 2012

NEW YORK, NY - The pinnacle of French haute couture and savoir faire, the house of Dior is one of the world's most celebrated luxury brands. In three retrospective volumes presented in a collectible slipcase, Assouline's Dior captures the most enduring images from each decade of the brand's rich history.

Dior, a three-volume slipcase set, recounts the history of one of the world's most celebrated luxury brands. Christian Dior envisioned a world of sophistication and elegance, a complete expression of the French tradition of high culture, artistry, and meticulous workmanship.

"I think of my work as ephemeral architecture," said Christian Dior, "dedicated to the beauty of the female body." Immortalizing Dior's fashion, fine jewelry, and fragrance collections, Assouline presents an objet as chic as its subject.??

The author of "Dior Fashion" is former editor in chief of L'Officiel de la Mode, Caroline Bongrand, who is also a novelist and screenwriter. She has published seven novels, translated into many languages, and an essay on the life and issues of modern women. ?

"Dior Fine Jewellery" and "Dior Perfume" are written by Jérôme Hanover, a journalist specializing in luxury lifestyle topics. He was editor in chief of Double, and jewelry and watch editor for L’Officiel, and has written for Mixte, Air France magazine, and Le Figaro among other publications.

In three retrospective volumes presented in a collectible slipcase, Dior Fashion, Fine Jewellery, and Perfume richly illustrate the couture house’s most iconic images, paying homage to the brand renowned for its refinement and taste.
