Marc Bo­han

1960–1989:

Simply You - - Heritage -

The hall­mark of Marc Bo­han’s 30-year stint at the helm was de­cep­tively sim­ple de­signs that com­bined clas­sic Dior shapes with in­no­va­tion. He drew in­spi­ra­tion from the 1920s while em­brac­ing the ’60s mini, and is cred­ited with chang­ing the Dior line from his very first haute cou­ture col­lec­tion, S/S 1961’s Slim Line. It was a more mod­ern ver­sion of the Dior shape and proved ex­tremely pop­u­lar; Hol­ly­wood roy­alty El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor bought 12 dresses from the range.
