The art of color

— Author Jerry Stafford — Publisher Rizzoli — Presentation Dior celebrates its passion for color in this book, inviting the major names behind the House Make-up to take inspiration from 12 key shades, illustrated in sumptuous photographs, and to compare them to great works of art.

This unexpected journey through color sees Peter Philips, Image and Creative Director for Dior Make-up, as well as Tyen and Serge Lutens, talk about their own creative processes, and reveal the rich history of Dior Beauty.
