1969 Christian Dior Haute-Couture Purple Houndstooth Silk-Chiffon Belted Dress

About

The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of Haute-Couture. When the talented Marc Bohan took over as head designer in 1960, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design. This ultra chic houndstooth print dress, which was featured in his 1969 fall-winter collection, is a perfect example of his talent. The fabric used for this garment is breathtaking; light-weight silk chiffon in royal purple and plum. The bodice is a seductive over-sized collar, low plunge shirtwaist with gorgeous billow-sleeves. The belted waist-sash gives the garment a very flattering silhouette. As Dior said, "I will only say now that elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This timeless dress is a wonderful mix of these elements. Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Hips:40 inches Sleeve Length:25 inches Total Length:48 inches This Christian Dior Haute-Couture 147350 numbered dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Garment slips over the head with no additional closures. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
