Dior has partnered with Rizzoli to release a new book celebrating Kim Jones‘ first year at the house. Titled The Dior Sessions, the book consists of over 100 black-and-white portraits of friends and family of the label, all shot by photographer Nikolai von Bismarck.

The portraits were shot on film across three continents over 12 months, and include names such as A$AP Rocky, David Beckham and Takashi Murakami. Announcing the project, Dior explained in a statement to WWD that it will act as a snapshot of the era. The statement continues, “Simultaneously reflecting the present and respecting the past, it holds up a mirror to modern society’s multifaceted nature, in which creatives are multihyphenates and different media — music, fashion, film, art — cross-pollinate and intermingle free of hierarchy.”

The Dior Sessions is set to release in October and will be available for $125 USD at Dior boutiques and Rizzoli stores. A section of the profits will be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity that provides nursing and support for young people with cancer.

In related news, Ashton Sanders stars in the first-ever Matchesfashion.com brand campaign.
