1953 Christian Dior Haute-Couture Black Floral Silk Brocade Winged Swing Jacket


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 1953 Christian Dior design commissioned by a private client before he passed away. The jacket is fashioned in luxurious jet-black large scale silk brocade. I love the chic collarless design with cardigan style open front. The swing shape flows into complex winged sides which really dazzles the eye. As Dior himself once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This iconic show-stopper is a wonderful mix of these elements. Measurements Bust:39-40 inches Hips:Free Sweep Sleeve Length:20 inches Total Length:25 inches This stunning Christian Dior Haute-Couture numbered '30820' garment are in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Hand-finished couture construction throughout. As shown, detail year has been removed however the serial code and documentation confirm date. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
