RUSSIAN ARCH: Christian Dior is the latest French luxury brand to get a prestigious museum showcase in Russia. Moscow’s Museé d’Art Moderne will host “Christian Dior, 60 Years of Photography,” which opens to the public today and runs through May 10 during the sixth International Festival of Moscow. Admission is 250 rubles, or about $7.40. The history of the French fashion house is told through 120 images by the likes of Henry Clarke, Erwin Blumenfeld, Patrick Demarchelier, Zanna and Simon Proctor. Dior also plans to showcase recent works by Chinese artists, including Quentin Shih, who shot models wearing couture juxtaposed with workaday landscapes. While clothes by the founding couturier and John Galliano get the lion’s share of attention, there are also Guido Mocafico still lifes of fine jewelry by Victoire de Castellane and Nan Goldin images featuring Dior Homme men’s wear by Kris Van Assche. As reported, Dior plans to open new boutiques this year in Saint Petersburg and Ekatrinaburg.
