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 full-length evening coat is a perfect example of his talent. The fabric used for this garment is breathtaking; fully-lined pastel baby blue silk-faille. The coat has a chic minimalist neckline and lean, long sleeves. The button-down design can transform this garment from a formal coat to a stylish maxi dress! As Dior said, "I will only say now that elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This timeless treasure is a wonderful mix of these elements.
