Dior unveils the exclusive new book Dior Scarves. Fashion Stories edited by Maria Luisa Frisa, which explores the myriad of inspirations behind those silk squares and their role within the House, from Christian Dior to Maria Grazia Chiuri.

A graceful finishing touch, the exceptional item stands out as a key element of any wardrobe, relating – through the variety of its prints and the virtuosity of its savoir-faire – a pluralistic odyssey.

This incredible heritage is spotlighted in a unique publication representing an atlas of 425 scarves organized by theme – Paris, Optical effects, Cosmogonies, Wefts, Codex, Flora, Bestiary, Colorama, Messages, Fashion –, enriched by Brigitte Niedermair’s exquisite photographs arranged in an enchanting portfolio. Magnetic shots celebrating the infinitely small, the art of detail, those multiple creative visions that are marvelously Dior. In addition to offering an unparalleled visual repertoire, the volume illustrates true stories of fashion.

Initiated by the Creative Director of Dior women’s collections, this abundant compendium assembles seminal texts by fashion historians: Maria Luisa Frisa, Claire Allen-Johnstone, Elda Danese and Émilie Hammen. These historical, technical, and sensory insights into centuries-old artisanship and savoir-faire combined with the most cutting-edge innovation are brought to life in images lensed by Pol Baril in the secrecy of manufacturing.

Reflecting the House’s unceasing excellence and inventiveness more than ever, this fascinating corpus, published by Thames & Hudson, will be available in bookshops from March 28, 2024.
