Paris, 2016-Dec-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — Seven volumes, one for each of the designers of the iconic couture house at 30 avenue Montaigne. To celebrate its 70th anniversary, Dior is paying homage to its seven creative directors with a book dedicated to each of them, compiled in an anthology featuring striking photographs by Laziz Hamani.

Founded in 1947, Dior is celebrating its 70th anniversary with the publication of seven books dedicated to the seven designers who have shaped the history of the couture house: Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri. Each tome explores the world and creations of the designers who have marked the storied Maison.

Published in collaboration with Editions Assouline, the series begins with Dior by Christian Dior, evoking the most iconic haute couture designs by the founder of the Maison. The seminal 504-page book is richly illustrated with photographs by Laziz Hamani, resonating elegantly with the text written by fashion historian Olivier Saillard, who proposes an in-depth analysis of Christian Dior’s inspirations, influences and visions, along with warmly recounted details and anecdotes behind each of the 84 pieces selected. They include the now mythic creations designed by the couturier for his first collection, notably the iconic Bar suit.

Dior by Christian Dior will be published in December 2016, followed by the volumes dedicated to the six other emblematic Dior designers in 2017 and 2018.

Jessica Chastain Stars in Eccentric Campaign for New YSL Perfume Manifesto

To act as the glamorous face of their luxurious new perfume for women, Manifesto, fashion house Yves Saint Laurent has chosen Hollywood actress Jessica Chastain, star of films such as The Help, for which she received an Oscar nomination for her role, and new release Lawless.

Speaking about her new role, Chastain said: “Yves Saint Laurent is a brand that inspires me deeply. Since its creating, the brand has conveyed strong values that I cherish, such as an unwavering commitment, absolute love and feminine audacity. This new fragrance is an emblem of it all.”

In the striking new campaign shots, 35-year-old Jessica is seen posing with her flame-coloured hair in a slick up-do, and statement red lips, whilst her hands and arms are covered in a deep purple paint. According to a YSL executive, purple was chosen for the campaign as it is seen as “the colour of absolute seduction for Mr. Saint Laurent”.

As for the perfume itself, Manifesto is described as “spontaneous, free spirited and courageous”, opening with fresh top notes of blackcurrant, bergamot and green accords, which then flows seamlessly into a floral heart of jasmine and lily of the valley, all of which is smoothly rounded off with an oriental base of sandalwood, cedar, vanilla and Tonka bean, creating an aroma that is full of passion and emotion.

Having just been released onto the market this month, Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto is currently available to order from online perfume retailer Fragrance Direct. The eau de parfum spray comes in three different sizes; 30ml (£37.99), 50ml (£54.99) and 90ml (£79.99). There is also a range of accompanying toiletries available from the Manifesto collection, such as the luxurious Shower Gel (200ml, £23.99).
