Video: Dior Through The Lens Of Avedon
Soon after the opening of the Dior fashion house, which happened, as you know, in 1946, the editor-in-chief of the American Harper's Bazaar, Carmel Snow, introduces two geniuses to each other - an uncompromising master of street photography and a fashion designer comparable to works of art. Just think of what we would have lost had it not been for the handshake of the skeptical modernist Avedon and the nostalgic romantic Dior! The Dior by Avedon book gives you the opportunity to touch the magic that appeared as a result of their interaction. It contains both perfectly recognizable photographs (like a frame with the divine Dovimoy in a Dior couture dress and surrounded by elephants), and previously unknown photographs, however, the first are in no way inferior. On the pages of the book, the axiom that true beauty is born in contrasts manages to remind of itself more than once: fragile models,Similar either to graceful birds with thin necks, or to crystal glasses with no less slender legs, they posed for Avedon not at all in the palace scenery - the rough walls and streets of a big city served as the film set. The importance of friendship with the House of Christian Dior for the photographer was invaluable: it was with him that he created his famous photographs with such persons as Marlene Dietrich, Twiggy and Veruschka.
You will be able to admire them again at the end of this month, when the book goes on sale on the website of the New York publishing house Rizzoli.
