Elegance, seduction and luxury has never been so well defined in a single mark as that of René Gruau’s hand. The graceful ease of line, playful use of positive and negative space, and sensuous color conveys a refined desire that continues to leave an everlasting impact on the fashion and advertising world… and me. His collaboration with Christian Dior in the 40’s and 50’s made another mark on recent fashion history when his great work was the inspiration for Dior’s Spring 2011 Couture Collection. Ah, to walk in this magic would be truly sublime.
