1960s Christian Dior Numbered Demi-Couture Dress w Crystal Straps


This dress is one of those amazing little black dresses that have just enough 'pop' to be the perfect evening piece without ever being too over the top. This is from is from Marc Bohan reign over the house of for Dior and it is a stunning example of his work during this time period. The dress is made from a black silk crepe and the cut is a play on a classic tuxedo. The neckline is cut into a low square and the reference to an evening tuxedo is done with the double row of hand covered buttons that run down the front. An simple black belt in the same fabric is attached around the waist. The skirt below that falls in a simple and slim pencil silhouette. The effect is very chic and simple. Along the neckline are rows of glittering crystal rhinestones that are set in a double band. These follow the edge of the front and back and then curve up and over each shoulder strap. They glitter like diamonds in real life and have far more of an impact then how they photographed. This is demi-couture and the Dior label is numbered, meaning that it was most likely a custom order through the boutique rather then an order place through the Paris atelier. It is a beautiful. Excellent condition. Fully interlined in a black silk and closes with a fine back painted metal zipper. All the inner edges are ribbon finished and hand done. Constructed to demi-couture standards. The buttonholes are properly made but the buttons are decorative only and the front does not undo. The belt is attached around the waist with hidden snaps and has a slip buckle front. There is a tiny amount of minuscule snagging tot he fabric here and there. It does not detract but is mentioned for accuracy.
