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.

In the world of contemporary men’s fashion, Christian Dior’s sophisticated legacy has been upheld by innovative designers, especially current creative director Kim Jones, who’s received praise for incorporating both couture values and streetwear elements into his work. With his years of experience at the heart of the fashion world and working on photographic reportages all around the globe, von Bismarck captures striking images of Kim’s designs, which fuse exquisite detail, romantic patterns, and soft colors with traditionally masculine silhouettes while retaining the modern edge of streetwear through sports shoes and chunky industrial jewelry.
Jones’s reverence for Dior’s heritage is evident in the photographs – even in his most daring innovations he nods to Christian Dior’s favorite patterns and floral motifs, as well as tailoring inspired by the signature couture designs of vintage Dior. A rare look inside an iconic menswear brand consistently at the foreground of celebrity style, The Dior Sessions is a must-have for Dior fans, fashion aficionados, and stylish men everywhere.
