John Galliano for Christian Dior 1960s Inspired Pink 2008 Vintage Jacket Top

$1,500

About

This is a 2008 John Galliano for Christian Dior 1960's inspired salmon pink vintage shantung silk short sleeve cropped blouse or jacket. This piece was featured in a variety of colorways and prints on the Dior Runway for their 2008 Cruise collection. In iconic Galliano style, he took signature styles of the 1960's and brilliantly interpreted them into modern 2000's fashion statements. This has the feeling of a short sleeved, cropped jacket that can be worn casually or formally, depending on the piece worn with it. We especially love the wide neckline with the rolled collar! The top closes with fabric covered buttons along the center front and there are wonderful pleats along the sides of the bust that are connected to the collar seam. The same pleating is done on the back of the blouse, creating extra volume in the bodice. This top has a raglan style short sleeve that flares out like a cap sleeve style and is fully lined. The style number is: 8C12022741 and the top was made in Italy of 100% Silk with 100% Silk lining. Labeled size IT 46 USA 10, but we estimate this would best fit a modern size 8-10 or M/L. CONDITION: Excellent BUST: up to 44" SLEEVE LENGTH: 8" SHOULDERS: 16" approx LENGTH FROM NAPE OF NECK TO HEM: 16" WIDTH OF NECKLINE: 14"

About the Designer

Christian Dior

When Christian Dior launched his couture house, in 1946, he wanted nothing less than to make “an elegant woman more beautiful and a beautiful woman more elegant.” He succeeded, and in doing so the visionary designer altered the landscape of 20th century fashion.

Dior was born in Granville, on the Normandy coast, in 1905. His prosperous haute bourgeois parents wanted him to become a diplomat despite his interest in art and architecture. However, they agreed to bankroll an art gallery, which Dior opened in 1928 in Paris with a friend.

This was the start of Dior’s rise in the city’s creative milieu, where he befriended Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau. After seven years as an art dealer, Dior retrained as a fashion illustrator, eventually landing a job as a fashion designer for Robert Piguet, and in 1941, following a year of military service, he joined the house of Lucien Lelong. Just five years later, with the backing of industrialist Marcel Boussac, the ascendant Dior established his own fashion house, at 30 avenue Montaigne in Paris.

Just two years after the end of World War II, the fashion crowd and the moribund haute couture industry were yearning, comme tout Paris, for security and prosperity, desperate to discard the drab, sexless, utilitarian garb imposed by wartime deprivation. They needed to dream anew.

And Dior delivered: He designed a collection for a bright, optimistic future. “It’s quite a revolution, dear Christian!” exclaimed Carmel Snow, the prescient American editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, famously proclaiming, “Your dresses have such a new look.” The press ran with the description, christening Dior’s debut Spring/Summer haute couture collection the New Look. “God help those who bought before they saw Dior,” said Snow. “This changes everything.”

Dior’s collection definitively declared that opulence, luxury and femininity were in. His skirts could have 40-meter-circumference hems, and outfits could weigh up to 60 pounds. They were cut and shaped like architecture, on strong foundations that molded women and “freed them from nature,” Dior said. Rather than rationing, his ladies wanted reams of fabric and 19-inch waists enforced by wire corsets, and the fashion world concurred. The debut got a standing ovation.

In the subsequent decade, Paris ruled as the undisputed fashion capital of the world, and Christian Dior reigned as its king. With the luxuriously full skirts of his New Look, suits and his drop-dead gorgeous evening dresses and ball gowns worthy of any princess, Dior gave women the gift of glamour they’d lost in the miserable years of war.
