The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of haute couture. While the House of Dior is still a thriving business today, Dior's untimely death in 1957 left the fashion world without a great dictator of style. Christian Dior designed under his own name for only a decade, but his influence is everlasting. Here is a rare opportunity to own a stunning 1956 Dior Original designed by Dior himself in France, for the American market, before he passed away. This coat is fashioned in a luxurious mid weight ivory creme silk-faille. The bodice has an alluring over-sized gathered portrait collar and chic cropped sleeves. There are even hidden pockets! I adore the pleated swing silhouette which is so easy to wear. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This timeless jacket is a wonderful mix of these elements.
Bust: up to 40 inches
