c.1968- 1972 Christian Dior Shaggy Two Toned Sheepskin Fur Coat

About

I have held this in my archives for several years now and I think that it is a stunning example of the fur pieces being produced at this point in Christian Dior's history. I am no expert on furs but believe this it is some type of a sheepskin that has been brushed out. Perhaps a Shetland sheep or something of that ilk. You can see in areas where the undercoat is very curly. The color is a combination of creamy ivory mixed with a pale taupe that has an almost pink cast to it in some areas. It is a little bit paler in the photos then how it is in real life. The fur is very soft soft and very fluffy. It is done in rows of fur that are interspersed with rows of a golden colored grosgrain ribbon. The collar is big and oversized. It is cut in a classic coat style with a flared bottom. Fur hooks run down the front and pockets sit along the horizontal row on each hip. The sleeves are cut straight and full and the collar is a classic notched wide collar. It has been properly stored and cared for and appears to have been worn very little if at all. No splitting, issues or shedding. Excellent condition with a minor note below to review. Fully lined in a deep taupe silk that is embroidered with the Christian Dior name throughout. It closes with the fur hooks down the front. Pockets on each hip. I see no bald spots or shedding, the pelts are supple and soft. There is slight wear at some of the common points - edges of the sleeves. the inner edge, but it is very minor. For a vintage fur from such an important designer, I still rate this as near excellent. The fur has no odd odor, is still supple and is stable with no signs of excessive shedding that would indicate that it is breaking down. Sleeves: 24" Shoulders: 15.5" Bust: to 20" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 44" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED Reference Photos: (1) Models in Christian Dior fur coats, L'officiel Magazine, 1971. / (2) Christian Dior Coat from The MET Collection. This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival. I have a small collection of historically important, key designer labelled vintage furs and fur trimmed pieces stored away in my archives that I will be slowly posting on the site over the next couple of years until I have none left. I will no longer be buying furs for the shop moving forward and have not purchased anything for several years now. I feel like times have changed and while there still is a place for vintage furs for some, including collectors and historians, many modern girls are choosing other options. Many of the pieces in my collection are representative of the designer during a set time period in history that was different then our modern outlook. I have decided that the best course to handle this controversial issue is to let the pieces I have go rather then sit in a cold storage unit. Fur coats are final sale.
