|Dior by Marc Bohan, published by Assouline, is the third in a series of seven books devoted to the designers who succeeded each other at the head of the House. The book looks back on three decades of Dior history. This rich heritage is recounted by the writer and journalist Jérôme Hanover and documented by hundreds of images of dresses shot by Laziz Hamani along with archival photographs.
The descriptive portraits of a selection of forty creations reveal the inspirations, universe and personality of Marc Bohan, with whom the author met numerous times, to tell the story of the longest relationship between a designer and the house of Dior. In the spring of 1957 Christian Dior offered Marc Bohan a position working for him. At that time, the designer already had an assistant, Yves Saint Laurent, so he intended entrusting him with his New York couture outpost. But fate had decided otherwise.
