It is with some 220 photos overflowing with joy that Dior, moments of joy invites you to discover the universe of the Dior house under the sign of pleasure and jubilation. Moments of intense joy, taken from life and signed by the greatest photographers who knew how to capture its cheerful and impetuous soul.
On November 25, 1950, it was Robert Doisneau who caught the joy in the eyes of Christian Dior and the laughter of Dior Catherinettes. Further on, we find the shots of the immense Richard Avedon or Henry Clarke who immortalized the swirling fashion and the sparkling silhouettes of the new look. Behind the scenes of the parades, so conducive to effusions, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Gérard Uféras or Ellen Von Unwerth forever fixed the cheerfulness of young models intoxicated by the excitement of the shows. Further on, it is the Dior joy of the carefree 80s and 90s that exults with the images of Guy Bourdin, Nick Knight or Jean-Paul Goude. Today, Peter Lindbergh, Emanuele Scorcelletti or Patrick Demarchelier seize again and again this happiness of living Dior which is exposed in their images.
Embellished with an exciting and erudite “little treatise on joy” written by the French psychoanalyst, director and screenwriter Muriel Teodori, Dior, moments of joy is a “feel-good book” which illustrates with communicative gaiety the joyful and explosive soul of Dior.
