Barely a month after the release of Dior, The Art of Colour, another book focusing on the luxury label has stolen the headlines. Titled Dior by Christian Dior, the new read is part of an upcoming seven-book series (The Anthology) to commemorate the maison's 70th birthday, and the first volume naturally shines the spotlight on founder Christian Dior, indexing his extraordinary creations from 1947-1957. Celebrated photographer Laziz Hamami visited museums around the world to capture Dior's exquisite haute couture dresses including the iconic New Look and Fuseau collections.
