Dior by Marc Bohan debuts next month, published by Assouline. The book, written by author and journalist Jérôme Hanover, will be the third installment in a series of seven books dedicated to the past head designers of the house of Dior.
Dior by Marc Bohan dives into nearly 30 years of fashion history made by Marc Bohan when he worked as the designer for Dior from 1961—89. The tome begins with Bohan’s first collection for Dior. It follows with hundreds of images of his designs throughout his years with the House, including pieces like the iconic Slim Look dress, named so for its slender silhouette, feminine shoulders, and a hem that fell just below the knee. In addition to images shot by photographer Laziz Hamani, the book features many archival images of the designer himself.
Readers will be immersed in Bohan’s most memorable haute couture creations, his involvement with personalities of the time like artist Niki De Saint Phalle, and learn about his vision for the brand: “To make sophisticated clothes simply, with a touch of insolence every now and then.”
