The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of Haute-Couture. When the talented Marc Bohan took over as head designer in 1960, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design. This beautiful four-piece ensemble is a perfect example of his talent. The fabrics used for this garment are breathtaking; burgundy silk-lined graphic wool tweed and luxurious velvet. The jacket is a wide-collar fitted silhouette with lean,long sleeves. I love the matching camisole and fringed scarf. The skirt is a flattering nipped waist a-line consutrction. As Dior said, "I will only say now that elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This gorgeous ensemble is a wonderful mix of these elements.
