Christian Dior - La Collection Privée

La Collection Privée from Christian Dior is their collection aimed at the world of haute parfumerie.  Dior’s perfumer, Francois Demachy, not only knows how to create amazing perfumes from blending raw materials but also knows how to create a story.

The story Demachy has created is that of Christian Dior’s life. Each fragrance is a tribute to the couturier’s creative life and the people and places that inspired the designer. Using a combination of illustrations and phototographs, this lovely little book tells the story ...beautifully.
The size is 140mm square, perfect bound. It has a 6pp cover with a full flap on the inside front cover and a 48pp text. The cover is blind embossed with a "frame" and the title is printed in black with a gloss "spot" UV varnish on the type giving it a raised effect. The material used is our Omnia 320gsm and 150gsm.
Many designers use Omnia because four colour work is fantastic and that means that most projects that people consider it for are heavily photographic. Omnia was chosen for this job because some of the illustrations are very fine and maintaining the detail was very important but a tactile uncoated feel was still essential.
Printing is by Identity, based in Paddock Wood, Kent and they have made a superb job of it - colour reproduction is fantastic - the illustrations look amazing as do the colour images - it is difficult for me to say too much more about it - the images speak for the job...
