Rosamund Pike strolls London’s Hatchards for Dior Book Tote Club series

AS PART of the second episode of the Dior Book Tote Club series, Dior has invited Rosamund Pike to stroll the aisles of London’s oldest bookstore in the heart of Piccadilly – Hatchards.

While literature meets fashion, the brand celebrates their relationship with the arts through short documentaries of renowned individuals guiding us through their favourite novels.

Pike unravels the whimsical intrigue that bookshops exude as one can delve into the minds of authors and follow their fascinations and intellect. Walking through Hatchards, the actress picks an array of novels that she slips into her Dior Book Tote Bag, with a nostalgic air arising as she selects her first book, On the Road by Jack Kerouac, which she explains that she read road-tripping with her father at age 14.

Pike then walks over to Jone Didion’s Slouching Towards Bethlehem as she explores one of the greatest observers of our time, discussing the freedom that lies in the notion of curiosity. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara is the third book tucked into Pikes tote, a magnificently devastating read the actress couldn’t leave behind.

The final novels added to her collection were Thomas Hardy’s The Mayor of Casterbridge, The Apple Is Everything by Barnaby Barford and the graphic novel, Moms by Young-sin Ma.

As the actress ruminates on her Dior Book Tote Club experience, she discusses the beauty that bookshops hold with their ability to take one around the world while standing in the same place and extend an invitation of sensational company to all that visit.
