A gorgeous Christian Dior Haute Couture chocolate brown ensemble dating back to their 1972-73 Fall Winter collection. When the talented Marc Bohan took over as head designer in 1960, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design and this exceptional three-piece set is a wonderful example. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; light as a feather French silk-chiffon of the highest possible grade. The silk satin bow-tie ribbon trim in the matching hue adds so much depth and texture. I love the semi-sheer slightly blousy strapless bodice with matching sash-waist belt. The pleated palazzo pants are a statement piece in it's own right with their semi-sheer romantic vibe. I love the nod is late 1930's design yet this ensemble remains truly timeless. As Dior himself once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This museum quality show-stopper is a wonderful mix of these elements.
