Christian Dior for sale on 1stDibs

When Christian Dior launched his couture house, in 1946, he wanted nothing less than to make “an elegant woman more beautiful and a beautiful woman more elegant.” He succeeded, and in doing so the visionary designer altered the landscape of 20th century fashion. Vintage Dior bags, shoes, evening dresses, shirts and other garments and accessories are known today for their feminine and sophisticated sensibility.

Dior was born in Granville, on the Normandy coast, in 1905. His prosperous haute bourgeois parents wanted him to become a diplomat despite his interest in art and architecture. However, they agreed to bankroll an art gallery, which Dior opened in 1928 in Paris with a friend.

This was the start of Dior’s rise in the city’s creative milieu, where he befriended Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau. After seven years as an art dealer, Dior retrained as a fashion illustrator, eventually landing a job as a fashion designer for Robert Piguet, and in 1941, following a year of military service, he joined the house of Lucien Lelong. Just five years later, with the backing of industrialist Marcel Boussac, the ascendant Dior established his own fashion house, at 30 avenue Montaigne in Paris.

Just two years after the end of World War II, the fashion crowd and the moribund haute couture industry were yearning, comme tout Paris, for security and prosperity, desperate to discard the drab, sexless, utilitarian garb imposed by wartime deprivation. They needed to dream anew.

And Dior delivered: He designed a collection for a bright, optimistic future. “It’s quite a revolution, dear Christian!” exclaimed Carmel Snow, the prescient American editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, famously proclaiming, “Your dresses have such a new look.” The press ran with the description, christening Dior’s debut Spring/Summer haute couture collection the New Look. “God help those who bought before they saw Dior,” said Snow. “This changes everything.”

Dior’s collection definitively declared that opulence, luxury and femininity were in. His skirts could have 40-meter-circumference hems, and outfits could weigh up to 60 pounds. They were cut and shaped like architecture, on strong foundations that molded women and “freed them from nature,” Dior said. Rather than rationing, his ladies wanted reams of fabric and 19-inch waists enforced by wire corsets, and the fashion world concurred. The debut got a standing ovation.

In the subsequent decade, Paris ruled as the undisputed fashion capital of the world, and Christian Dior reigned as its king. With the luxuriously full skirts of his New Look, suits and his drop-dead gorgeous couture dresses and ball gowns worthy of any princess, Dior gave women the gift of glamour they’d lost in the miserable years of war.

On 1stDibs, find an exquisite range of vintage Christian Dior clothing, jewelry, handbags and other items.

Finding the Right sunglasses for You

A pair of vintage designer sunglasses can be a game-changing finishing touch to your ensemble.

No matter your age or general fashion sensibility, wearing sunglasses may already be part of your regular outdoor routine owing to their practicality. Most sunglasses protect the eyes from harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays — and not merely on sunny days. Glasses that utilize color-enhancing lenses, which feature specific coatings or filter tints, can limit the amount of light coming through, while polarized lenses substantially reduce glare.

So while their usefulness is well known, let’s face it, a good pair of sunglasses can be stylish too.

People have been making a statement with iconic eyewear for a while — sunglasses garnered popularity with the Hollywood set in the early 1900s, when it wasn’t uncommon for a hip actress to be photographed in a pair of her sharpest shades.

Today, we’re still talking about the sunglasses that Audrey Hepburn — the original trendsetter — donned in the opening scene of 1961’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She emerges from the flagship store of the legendary luxury house referenced in the film’s title in a pair of glamorous dark tortoiseshell frames designed by London eyewear firm Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses. The brand was a keeper for Hepburn — in 1967, she famously wore a pair of Goldsmith’s Yuhu wraparound frames in the poster for Stanley Donen’s film Two for the Road.

Indeed, celebrities have long held sway in the sunglasses realm — perhaps you’ve opted for vintage Ray-Ban sunglasses because you’re enamored with Marilyn Monroe’s celebrated Wayfarers or you’ve taken to classic Aviators because actor Jon Hamm wore them in the nostalgic TV smash hit Mad Men. Good frames are a surefire way to take your style to the next level.

When shopping for the right pair of sunglasses, consider the color and shape of the frames (as well as the shape of your face), how dark or light the lenses are — or tint, if you’re leaning toward a chic gradient lens. Take your time, spring for more than one pair because different moods call for different shades and, while you’re at it, make sure you know how to spot a pair of fake Ray-Ban sunglasses before you make that purchase.

On 1stDibs, our collection of vintage designer sunglasses features classics from Gucci, Cartier, Chanel and other brands as well as a wide range that can be sorted by color — find sleek black sunglasses, brown pairs and a whole lot of other eye-catching options, whether it’s sunny outside or not.

Questions About Christian Dior
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, Dior shoes tend to run narrow. It is often recommended to purchase a size up, especially if you don’t have narrow feet to begin with. Find a collection of vintage and contemporary Christian Dior shoes from a variety of top sellers around the world on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    How to best clean Dior sneakers varies based on the material. Using a cleaning product designed for whatever your sneakers are made of can help you avoid damaging leather or suede. Generally, you can wipe surface dirt off all Dior sneakers with a soft, dry microfiber cloth. On 1stDibs, find a variety of Dior sneakers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    To attach a branded canvas strap to a Dior saddle bag, use the spring-mounted lobster clasps located at each end. Simply pull back on the finger knob to open the fastener and slip the clasp onto one of the metal rings located on the top of the bag. Let go to close the fastener. Repeat on the other side, and you're ready to carry your bag with your new strap. Find a collection of Dior saddle bags on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Hallmarks can help you authenticate Dior jewelry. Typically, Dior stamps its hallmarks on the fasteners of their jewelry. Pieces made in the 1950s often include the names of the designers Kramer or Mitchel Maer. Pieces from this period may also say "Dior West Germany" or "Made in Germany for Christian Dior." During the 1960s and 70s, the hallmark became "Chr.Dior." Since the 1980s, the brand's hallmark reads "Christian Dior" along with a copyright symbol and the manufacturing year. You may also find "Made in France" on modern hallmarks. Shop a large selection of expertly vetted Dior jewelry on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    There are several signs to look for to tell whether your Dior bag is authentic or fake. Check the handles to make sure they’re sturdy and don’t bend. The leather used for inner implements should be an exact match to the leather used on the outside of the bag. Check for any signs of sloppy workmanship in the stitching, hardware or in the shape of the bag. Authentic Dior bags will always retain their shape, even if they’re vintage. Date code tags should be rectangular with rounded edges. Keep in mind that Dior stopped making their handbags in France in 1990, so a newer bag with a “Made in France” stamp is another warning sign. While Christian Dior has inspired knockoffs, 1stDibs partners with only top-vetted sellers to offer authentic pieces that come with a buyer protection guarantee.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    To tie a scarf on a Lady Dior bag, knot one end on one side of the arched handle. Position the short end of the scarf so that it faces straight down. Then, carefully wrap the long end of the scarf around the handle, working from one side to the other. Stop occasionally to reposition the short end to keep the tip facing downward. Once the scarf completely covers the handle, knot the other end. Shop a large selection of Lady Dior bags on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    You can check a few features to know if Dior sunglasses are likely real. All Dior sunglasses show a brand name stamp along the inner temple.
