René Gruau Genious -

I am in love with the work of  illustrator, René Gruau, he too took the fashion world by storm with his elegant, bright sensual technique, his slight sense of humor and his love of glamor. Of course we've all seen some of his more famous work, in the form of the Dior campaigns, but I believe it is not the genius layout and intricate sense of beauty that make his work so popular, but rather the minimalist lines and underlying romantic ambiance. The Dior adds are not selling a single product or life style, but rather a way of perceiving yourself and the rest of the world.

Je suis amoureuse du travail de l’illustrateur, René Gruau. Plutôt connu pour son travail avec Dior, Guau a changé le monde de la mode, ou plutôt la perception qu'on en avait. Son talent est énorme et sa technique subtile et pleine langoureuse l'ont propulsé dans le monde de la mode. Gruau ne vendait pas des produit, ou même un style de vie, Gruau vendait une maniere de se percevoir, et de percevoir le reste du monde. Il vendais un état d'esprit, le sens même de "glamour".

  4. Beautiful work! I think part of the reason why his images were so successful was the simplicity of it and the minimalist style he had. It's almost abstract in some of these. David Downton has a similar style. You should look him up if you get the chance...his illustrations are breathtaking.

    Thank you for sharing!

  8. I never knew about Monsieur Gruau. His Dior illustrations are so elegant and artistic. I agree with you that it is not about selling a product but about presenting a lifestyle. So different from the the current celebrity Ads we are bombarded now.
