1950's Christian Dior Numbered Couture Floral-Silk Dress & Coat

About

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 during Dior's lifetime. The ensemble is fashioned in a gorgeous burnt-orange watercolor floral print silk-faille. I love tailored nipped-waist silhouette. The coat is just as amazing with the draped-sleeves and swing style. 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.
