Christian Dior discovered gardening at his childhood home in Granville, France. Roses profoundly influenced the designer, especially with his famous New Look aesthetic, where they were placed beneath the iconic corolla symbol. Published on the occasion of the exhibition at the Musee Christian Dior in Granville, this volume explores the rose's importance in Dior's history. The inspiration for Christian Dior's flowery vision of femininity runs deep throughout the House's collections; reinventions by subsequent artistic directors pay homage to Dior's wish to design dresses for flower-like women. A focus on a new variety of rose, the Rose de Granville, underscores the perennial significance of the rose today-from inspiring Haute Couture creations to perfume making. This fascinating immersion in Dior's universe continues with texts by experts Eric Pujalet-Plaa, Vincent Leret, and Brigitte Richart, accompanied by sublime photographs, including shots by the most acclaimed twentieth-century masters as well as contemporary photography.

"Christian Dior was famous for his love of flowers - none more so than the rose, which inspired many of the couturier's designs and continues to fuel the French fashion house's creative output to this day.To celebrate its relationship with the bloom, the brand plans to stage an exhibition titled "Dior and Roses" at the Musee Christian Dior in the French seaside town of Granville from June 5 to Oct. 31...The 160-page tome, published by Rizzoli New York, is scheduled to come out in Europe on June 2 and the rest of the world, including the U.S., on Sept. 7." -WOMEN'S WEAR DAILY "While reading this book, you can indeed smell the roses, a sensory reaction that few books of this genre elicit. For that alone Eric Pujalet-Plaa should be commended." -NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS "'After women, flowers are the most divine creations,' Christian Dior once wrote. For the couturier, the rose was the most ravishing of all, as demonstrated in this lavish book that delves into the fashion house's enduring fascination with the bloom-from textiles to fragrances." -ELLE DECOR
