1961 Christian Dior Numbered Couture Black Lace Ensemble

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A sensationally classic Christian Dior numbered Couture ensemble in black net with sculpted ribbon lace and layered silk chiffon base.

This luxurious and delicate ensemble consists of a dress and jacket, both of a quintessential Dior silhouette. The dress is an empire constructed bodice with flared hemline.

What makes the dress so special is the amount of hand work construction that lies beneath the multiple layers of nude and black silk chiffon. The dress feels liquid soft when worn. The jacket fits loosely and floats elegantly over the dress. This dress and jacket is extremely regal, yet very wearable and modern.

Fits a US Size 8.
