Dior Images Paolo Roversi is a celebration of the collaboration between the famous couture House and a world leading fashion photographer. Published by Rizzoli, the book paints a fascinating portrait of Dior Haute Couture creations, as seen through Paolo Roversi’s lens.
A native of Ravenna in Italy, Paolo Roversi arrived in Paris in 1973. He discovered the work of Richard Avedon and Irving Penn and went on to meet Robert Frank, Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton. In the 1990s, he began to photograph Haute Couture creations for prestigious magazines such as Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, British Vogue and W.
Paolo Roversi has spent over forty years creating a remarkable and profoundly poetic body of work. His skilful use of Polaroid film combined with a large-format camera underpins a highly sensitive view of women, helping to create the fragile grace that makes his style immediately recognizable.
Dior Images Paolo Roversi comprises a series of iconic pictures taken by the photographer and published in leading fashion magazines over the last twenty-seven years. The collection of images, with a preface by Italian philosopher Emanuele Coccia, features models including Naomi Campbell, Natalia Vodianova and Laetitia Casta in striking but natural poses.
Paolo Roversi’s frequent use of blurs evokes the origins of fashion photography and removes the dividing line between the models’ bodies and the world that surrounds them. The photographer’s lens highlights something pure, a sort of abandon or absence, far removed from conventional facial expressions and poses.
The dresses by Christian Dior and his successors – Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri - that grace the pages seem to be infused with an inner light. In addition to archive images, the book exclusively reveals a selection of Christian Dior’s most beautiful designs, photographed during a session that famous stylist Grace Coddington worked on. The book proves that, in Paolo Roversi’s words, ‘photography is not a reproduction but a revelation.’

Prada Womenswear Resort 2018 Collection Fashion Show Space Description SUSPENDED ENSEMBLE, AMO reinterprets Osservatorio, Fondazione Prada’s new exhibition space dedicated to photography in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Milan.
The set is conceived as a confrontation between real and manufactured moments. The linear arrangement of the seating orientates the guests towards the cupola placed beyond the large windows.
Enhanced by both reflective and translucent columns, the guests have a transfigured view of the chiseled profile of Mengoni’s architecture. Models walk along the windows, glowing in the afternoon sun, suspended between the sky and the ornate iron dome that acts as the silent backdrop for the show.
On the other side of the room this scene is deconstructed and magnified. A continuous mirror running along the wall echoes the overall scene, augmenting the room’s proportions. Distorted fragments of Galleria and evanescent details of the collection cover the surfaces of a series of screens in reflective and pastel colors, blending the spectacle into the set, creating an ephemeral ensemble.

Valentino Resort 2018 Collection
Identity is a construction in progress, that with dialogue expands, evolves and forms. Looking to the street, with a clear eye and with a romantic soul. Submerging in diversity and reaching it in the epicenter where other form of expressions arise. In places of urban metamorphosis. Far away. Elsewhere.
To know the other, means to understand him. The encounter with what does not belong to us gives birth to blendings that change the course of the future.
Borders become elastic, merging together cultures and contradictory ways of being: vanishing grace and metropolitan concreteness; the spontaneous trait by Zandra Rhodes and floral refinement.
Hip hop as a melting pot. Sport: a system of signs and an attitude. Pre-Colombian authority and simplicity.
Freestyling: an assembly that erases borders creating a language. The shear cut that marks the rhythm and dictates the accents.
Elements of a wardrobe: the shirt, the trench coat, the pleated skirt, the track jacket, the dress. Precise actions that revise the image, conserving its essence: reaching the essential, increasing the volumes, quivering the surfaces.
Adorn, to acknowledge oneself. Reusing as a form of creativity. Jewelry as a composition that marks the persona.
