Christian Dior & Richard Avedon

Dovima with Elephants - Richard Avedon, 1955

One of the biggest news in the fashion world last week was Raf Simons’ departure from Dior. I’m still wondering why! You know how I love to share images on the blog, and I thought today was perfect timing to share some of Richard Avedon’s work for Dior. Richard Avedon and Christian Dior met in 1946- Richard was more of a modernist and the happiest man photographing expensive clothes on the street – as happy as me when I wear them 😉 – and Christian a nostalgic romantic, their work proved highly complementary- here’s why! These photos really represent the French elegance that I love!

Le départ de Raf Simons de chez Dior fût la nouvelle la plus importante dans le monde de la mode la semaine dernière. Je me demande bien pourquoi d’ailleurs!  Comme vous le savez, j ‘adore partager mes photos préférées sur le blog, et du coup je me suis dit que c’était la parfaite occasion pour parler de Richard Avedon. Richard Avedon et Christian Dior se sont rencontrés en 1946 – Richard était un moderniste et probablement l’homme le plus heureux de la terre quand il photographiait des vêtements de luxe – autant que moi quand je les porte 😉 –  et Christian étant un romantique, ils se complétaient parfaitement bien – et voici pourquoi !
