A slightly lesser-known figure than Yves Saint Laurent or John Galiano, Marc Bohan nevertheless contributed, from 1960 to 1988, to making Dior the highly revered house it is today. With his slightly more ethereal silhouettes, Marc Bohan left behind designs that are as sophisticated as they are timeless. And this book sheds new light on that period – a period documented and explained in the words of Jérôme Hanover, Christian Dior’s Director of Publications.
