Dior by Mats Gustafson

In a follow-up for our posts about the Dior exhibition in Paris and the marvellous Dior illustrator Mats Gustafson, let us share the most impressive Christmas gift we got this year: this amazing album of Gustafson’s illustrations for Dior.

Under the most unpretentious title you find dozens of beautiful large-format illustrations created for numerous collections in Gustafson’s signature style: minimalist and charming. He uses watercolors, cut papers and thoroughly impresses us with his talent for capturing fabrics in all their varieties. The dresses and accessories live on the pages. The album is simply a great pleasure to look through and captures well the, strictly speaking unnecessary (but how important!), beauty of fashion and even illustration.

The book out of the sleeve.

A very Dior-ish, high couture Didoni in the introduction. Other than that, the book uses Gustafson’s handwriting.

With a handwriting like this you don’t need fonts.
