A unique exhibition is now taking place in Somerset House in London. From now and until January 09 you may see the most opulent and iconic works created by the famous fashion illustrator of the 20th century Rene Gruau, who for 40 years of his life worked with Dior. The exhibition is designed to celebrate this collaboration and show Gruau’s original artwork for the House of Dior, as the visitors may see over seventy original illustrations for Christian Dior sketches, perfumes, magazines and poster ads created by the artist.
Dior has presented John Cameron Mitchell-directed short-film entitled ‘Lady Grey London’, the fourth and the last installment of the colour saga, which takes the viewers across the globe. The creators of the video decided to dedicate it to the grey colour because it crowns the traditional weather palette of the capital and is considered to be one of the emblematic colours of the fashion brand. Just as it is with the previous videos, the key character of the story is played by award-winning French actress Marion Cotillard.
