After New York and Dubai, the Parisian house makes its final pitstop in the South of France for Dior: Art of Colour

Anyone who has closely followed the evolution of Dior would know that the Parisian fashion house has always been renowned for one thing: its unapologetic use of colours – an integral part of the maison's identity since its debut 70 years ago

In October last year, Dior published Dior: The Art of Colour, a narrative that documents the house's kaleidoscopic journey across the colour spectrum through the eras and its history in 12 chromatic chapters. The book presents the evolution of the brand's definition of beauty, boasting iconic works from distinguished artists and its three past and current heads of Dior Makeup – Serge Lutens, Tyen and Peter Philips, the current Creative and Image Director. 

After making appearances in New York and Dubai, the book-turned-exhibition has finally made its way to the South of France, taking over the Galerie du Cloître in Arles. Running until 24 September, the exhibition is held as part of the annual Rencontres d'Arles photography festival in support of the LUMA Foundation's Photography archive programme, which honours the celebrated American photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Earlier this week, Bella Hadid, Winnie Harlow, Jeanne Damas, and other A-listers attended the opening Dior: Art of Colour. Together with Peter Philips, they discovered the expressionist-accented films of Serge Lutens, the sensual aesthetic of Tyen’s photographs, and the visual homages to color orchestrated by Richard Burbridge and Philips.
