1990s Christian Dior Black Full Skirted Skater Coat W Satin Collar & Buttons
This is a wonderful little black coat by the Dior label that has a strong nod to the 1940s in the way it is cut. The top portion of the coat has lovely rounded shoulders whose seams are set to run across the shoulder and down the sleeve so there is no break where the sleeve is set in. The sleeves are cut slightly wider at the top and narrow down a touch as they near the cuffs. It cinches in at the waist and then flares out dramatically for the lower part of the coat. I would bet that if you laid it out flat you could easily get a full proper circle out of the fabric of the coat, it is that full, This of course lends to tremendous movement when you move. The coat buttons up the front with black matte satin covered buttons and the collar is finished with the same. It is very chic once on. Excellent condition
