Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
A celebration of art and photography through the lens of the female gaze
Since being appointed the first female creative director of Dior in 2016, Maria Grazia Chiuri has infused the illustrious fashion brand with a strong current of femi-nism. Her approach is at once refreshing and needed, while still paying homage to the avant-garde ethos that has been at the heart of the house since its founding by Christian Dior in 1947.
This beautifully produced volume presents 160 images by leading female photographers such as Nan Goldin, Sarah Moon, Brigitte Niedermair, Coco Capitán, Vanina Sorrenti, Julia Hetta, Katerina Jebb, Zoë Ghertner, and Bettina Rheims. The women creators featured among these pages represent the breadth of style and diversity upheld by the Maison Dior.
Thought-provoking quotes and poems from inspirational women–Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Linda Nochlin, Claire Fontaine, Judy Chicago, and Tomaso Binga, to name a few–accompany the striking photographs.
Showcasing Chiuri's haute couture and ready-to-wear collections from 2017 to 2021, Her Dior captures the creative director's innovations at the house--where, for the past five years, she's reclaimed the narrative creating Dior fashions for women, by women. Available now at MENDO.
