HASSAN HAJJAJ

Hassan Hajjaj blends artistic themes and genres from a diverse range of influences. He creates a whimsical, eccentric universe, initiating a dialogue between tradition and modernity, culture and pop culture. Known for his colourful portraits, somewhere between documentary and fashion, Hajjaj also integrates African prints and textiles and manipulated logos in compositions, a visual re-appropriation of global consumerism and a critical interpretation of oriental exoticism. This first major monograph of his work coincides with a retrospective at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie. It includes his best-known and celebrated series along with previously unpublished works.

PETER LINDBERGH. DIOR

Peter Lindbergh photographed DIOR's most exceptional muses, Marion Cotillard and Charlize Theron among them, and signed campaigns for Lady Dior and J'Adore with his inimitable style.

CHANEL THE IMPOSSIBLE COLLECTION

More than any other designer of her era, Gabrielle Chanel had the ability to predict the evolution of contemporary fashion. Self-inventor extraordinaire, Chanel revolutionized the lifestyle of her time by inventing a modern concept of luxe minimalism, elevating humble fabrics such as jersey and tweed to couture status, giving birth to a new silhouette both sophisticated and discreet, setting her stamp on the twentieth century with her modern spirit of understated luxury.The house of Chanel represents modern fashion. Under its founder, the style of the modern woman was invented, through the image of Gabrielle Chanel herself. She dressed women to be free, and her emancipated clothes reflected the shifting landscape of society. Her designs fundamentally affected what we wear, and how we wear it. The work of the house under her successor Karl Lagerfeld has transformed fashion anew: He drew the template for a fashion designer reviving a moribund house with elements from its own history. Just as Chanel created modern fashion, Lagerfeld in turn established the blueprint of the modern fashion house. She reshaped the clothes women wear, he reshaped the industry that makes them.This book is a literary museum exhibition, a curated selection of 100 iconic and signature looks of the house of Chanel, from the timeless Little Black Dress to the impeccably simple tweed suit, the apothecary-style perfume bottle, two-tone pumps, abundant strands of faux pearls and stones, and diamond-quilted leather handbag, from Mademoiselle’s revolutionary designs to Karl Lagerfeld’s unexpected and even irreverent variations on her original codes.Selected by fashion journalist Alexander Fury, Chanel: The Impossible Collection showcases the best images from the world’s foremost editorial photographers, specialist museums, and private collections, including rarely seen archival photos, this handcrafted Ultimate Collection volume is the quintessential compendium for fashion aficionados.Complimentary white gloves and signature canvas tote bag are included with each purchase from Assouline's Ultimate Collection
