For over two years, the building underwent major renovation work, evolving from deconstruction to resurrection. Thus, the photographer was able to cast his gaze on both what had been and what was becoming. Amidst cables and rubble, light and beauty shine through in his unique images. The ultimate expression of this reinvention, Dior’s emblematic models, such as the essential Barsuit, are featured in this singular decor. A strong, modern artistic choice glowing with the spirit of the founding-couturier, with the aura of #Dior style, like a powerful prophecy of tomorrow’s world and fashion.
