Christian Dior · Rene Gruau · Somerset House

Rene Gruau exhibition

Here’s a reminder about this great exhibition which is finishing this Sunday I want to urge you to go and see it if you can, before it’s too late, as it really is amazing. Rene Gruau was a famous artist who collaborated with Christian Dior and back in the day when ilustration was used more than photography, he did a lot of adverts for the fashion house among other work. The two got on like a house on fire and so Dior gave Gruau a free hand and it was a good decision. His illustrations were different, sometimes provoking and caused a little controversy, but that can never hurt. This collection at Somerset House shows quite a lot from Dior’s and Gurau’s archives, including sketches, vintage perfume bottles and haute couture dresses, is very inspiring and not to be missed. Photography is not allowed, but I was cheeky a managed to snap few pictures to give you an idea what it’s like, especially if you’re going to miss it.
Have a stylish day.
