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 two-piece ensemble which was featured in L'Officiel is a perfect example of his talent. The fabric used for this garment is breathtaking; fully-lined textured navy blue boucle-wool. The jacket has a chic wide portrait-collar plunge and sculpted bow-tie design. I love the matching nipped waist pencil skirt with side pockets which is really flattering to the figure. As Dior said, "I will only say now that elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This elegant set is a wonderful mix of these elements.
