Launching just in time for International Women’s Day, Dior‘s new book brandishes, on its cover, the iconic T-shirt Maria Grazia Chiuri designed for her very first show, as a veritable symbol of her commitment.
Exploring the power and acuity of the female gaze, this new work, an anthology of dazzling images, is an ode to self-affirmation and to the beauty of cultures and couture—like so many banners of freedom. Entitled Her Dior: Maria Grazia Chiuri’s New Voice, this anthology celebrates 33 women photographers, among them Brigitte Niedermair, Sarah Moon, Bettina Rheims, Lean Lui, Maya Goded, Julia Hetta and Janette Beckman. In images combining portraiture and captivating décors, abstraction and chiaroscuro, these contemporary personalities sublimate manifesto-collections by the creative director, who has worked with other women continually throughout her campaigns and various artistic dialogues.
Perpetuating these multiple visions, this book published by Rizzoli New York will be unveiled on March 8th, 2021, as a striking homage to the diversity of beauty. Put it on your book club reading list now. —Vita Daily
