1955 Christian Dior Haute-Couture Mocha Wool Cape-Coat & Blouse

Sorry, this item from Timeless Vixen has been sold.

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 breathtaking two-piece ensemble from his 1955 autumn-winter collection. The set is fashioned in a gorgeous mocha-brown wool. I love the double-breasted bodice and side-pockets. The matching blouse is a sculpted hourglass silhouette. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This classic ensemble is a wonderful mix of these elements.

This stunning 1955 Christian Dior numbered-couture set is in excellent condition with no rips,fade or stains. The inside are all hand-finished. Only thing to note is two professional repairs to the cape which blend-in well. The blouse has no issues at all. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
