Fashion photography enthusiasts and art book collectors, this one is for you. In celebration of International Women’s Day, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Italian fashion designer and the current creative director at Dior, has released a photography book titled Her Dior: Maria Grazia Chiuri’s New Voice.
The anthology book features 33 women photographers who have collaborated with Chiuri since she took over the helm of Dior in 2016. Her Dior aims to celebrate art and photography through the lens of the female gaze, “an ode to self-affirmation and to the beauty of cultures and couture — like so many banners of freedom,” according to a press release from Dior.
A perfect addition to any coffee table, the book is bound with a black ribbon that features the words “HER DIOR” printed repeatedly – a motif visually reminiscent of the maison's J’Adior ribbon back heels. Printed in the brand’s recognizable san serif typeface and on a plain white t-shirt, the cover reads “We Should All Be Feminists” – a phrase coined and popularized by Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Fans of Dior will recognize the shirt from 2016 when Chiuri included them in her first runway show as the creative director of the French fashion house, with Adichie in attendance. (Non-fashion people might recognize the phrase from Beyoncé's "****Flawless", which also featured Adichie via a sampling of her 2017 TED talk.)
Her Dior includes the work of photographers like Brigitte Lacombe, Sarah Moon, Fabiola Zamora, and others. It’s available for purchase today in Dior boutiques and online.
