1950s Christian Dior Demi-Couture Black Voluminous Coat


This coat is extraordinary and is beautiful and early example of Christian Dior's work. This is the Dior Original, New York label so is what is considered to be demi-couture from this time period of Dior's history. These where made in, and for, the American market but were based on the runway designs and with many of the same high standard finishes that the true Haute Couture pieces incorporated. The coat looks to have never been worn, or worn very little. It is cut with the volume and curves that defined the era and showcases the influence that the house of Dior had in establishing the direction of line and cut during this era. A neat small collar sits above the buttons that run down the front. The lines of the coat are simple and beautiful with a sense of austerity to the lines. It utilizes the very minimal of seaming in its design with dropped curving shoulders and arms and that fantastically full, voluminous cut through the body. I love the huge front pockets that sit on each hip at the front. The fabric is a highly textured matte wool and the textured lining feels and looks like the type of silk that would normally be used in men's suiting. It feels insanely modern and looks like it just stepped out of the showroom of the atelier. Excellent condition Lined in hand set black, textured silk. It buttons to close at the front and has pockets on each hips with each pocket is lined in silk. The buttons have proper finished buttonholes. Hand finishes. The cut is meant to sit oversized and will fit a variety of sizes. Appears unworn or worn very, very little Sleeves: 16" approx. Shoulders: no defined seam Bust: to 23" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: to 22.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: to 25" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 42" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-LRG This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
