Discover a tribute to an exciting partnership between fashion and photography in this two-volume coffee table book from Taschen, the latest book project by legendary photographer Peter Lindbergh.

Peter Lindbergh photographed DIOR's most exceptional muses, including Marion Cotillard and Charlize Theron, and drew campaigns for Lady Dior and J'Adore with his inimitable style. Throughout his career, the photographer was one of the House's closest collaborators. This latest book was an original co-creation close to the artist's - and our - hearts.

Seventy years of DIOR history projected on Times Square, New York: this was the concept behind Lindbergh's project, extraordinary in scope and dimension, for which, in an unusual move, DIOR had an unprecedented number of priceless garments taken from its vaults in Paris and shipped across the Atlantic.

The result is electric. Amid the frenzy of Times Square, Alek Wek shines in the immaculate 1947 Bar suit, the legendary ensemble that launched the House of DIOR. In snippets of street scenes, models Saskia de Brauw, Karen Elson and Amber Valletta flit through crowds and scaffolding, are reflected in building facades and draped in haute couture, from pieces hand-sewn by Christian Dior to more recent designs by Maria Grazia Chiuri. Lindbergh's signature monochrome and color photographs masterfully highlight the intricacies, silhouettes and textures of each garment.

Lindbergh himself is present in every aspect of this two-volume publication, designed by his longtime collaborator and friend Juan Gatti. Volume one contains 165 never-before-published images from the shoot, including an introduction by Martin Harrison. Volume two pays tribute to Lindbergh's profound relationship with the Parisian house and features more than 100 of his photographs of DIOR creations, from haute couture to ready-to-wear, men and women, originally published in some of the world's most prestigious magazines such as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. A breathtaking tribute to two pillars of fashion and photography and their timeless collaborations.
