Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dior Impressions serves as a catalog for the eponymous exhibit... it is also a unique volume that approaches the artistry of the brand via comparisons to the impressionist painters and paintings of the 19th century. This stunning and yet diminutive volume provides the reader with addictive and arresting visuals as well as text that is simple and to the point. The beauty of Dior Impressions is that it can be appreciated on so many different levels. The reproduction quality is just astounding and the material is so jaw dropping as to proffer a truly heightened perception of just how amazingly talented Monsieur Dior was and how Mr. Galliano was the perfect successor. Dior fans and Galliano fans will get a healthy dose of fashion here. For the fashion initiated this is one helluva great way to learn about this fabled brand and some of its immeasurably talented designers." ~Jeffrey Felner, New York Journal of Books

“Christian Dior’s dresses evoked the light, color and fluidity in the work of French Impressionists. And it wasn’t by chance…published to accompany an exhibition at the Musee Chrisitan Dior in France, explores the 19th-century art movement’s role in shaping the fashion house…” ~W Magazine

“…the book offers luminous photos that juxtapose the house’s fabulous couture with the French Impressionist works...that helped inspire their creation.” ~Manhattan Magazine

"This new Rizzoli book, which accompanies an exhibition running at the [Christian Dior] museum until Sept. 22. draws explicit parallels between Impressionist works and Dior designs by the house founder, along with those of John Galliano and Raf Simons. It shows paintings next to dresses that were inspired by them or that they resemble. Roses, lilies ofthe valley, poppies, tulips, wildflowers and even ivy tum up on all sorts of day cocktail and evening looks, but especially the last. "Each new collection is like a new spring, with the pieces of fabric as new shoots," Dior wrote in his memoirs." ~Women's Wear Daily

"Published to accompany the Impressions Dior exhibition presented at the Musée Christian Dior in Granville, France, the book features over 150 images of art by such luminaries as Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Manet, complemented by a range of garments from Christian Dior’s first designs, to Raf Simons’s latest collection. The book essentially connects the arts of painting and fashion, in a book that anyone with an interest in either will want for their library. We really love that." ~Brilliant Magazine

I love Dior, gardens, and Impressionism, so its not surprising that I love this book. It is gorgeous, with a beautiful tactile cover, amazing art and such dresses. This is a coffee table book that I actually keep thinking about and going back to.

I was in a frantic mood trying to find something to put under the tree for my aunt and her two girls whom are all consumed with the fashion bug. I got several of these types of coffee table fashion books and they were the hit of Christmas. These are great gifts when you have no idea what to get.

Beautiful book. Perfect for anyone interested in the history of fashion. While it focuses on Dior, it does NOT have a commercial feel. This would make a lovely gift for an elegant friend.

Great quality of the book, much better than previously purchased Dior Couture, also by Rizzoli. The cover is covered with fabric. Excellent addition to my collection or art books.
