1960s Christian Dior Brown Wool Suit

A stupendous Christian Dior in a fabulous brown wool tweed that has all the hallmarks of a Dior and still feels fresh and relevant! I would date this as an early sixties piece and you can still see the influence of Christian's earlier ten year reign in that fabulous collar. When the jacket is buttoned fully the collar frames the face an a dramatic curve of wool. The double breasted front is long and skims over the waist and down the hips, curving to give an hourglass figure. The skirt is a simple A-line and balances that highlighted waist line. It is wonderfully made inside and out - the seaming in the inner jacket is fantastic and it has proper finishes throughout. You could easily wear the jacket on its own as light coat. It is a good weight - not a unwieldy when on but the weight one would expect from a suit of this time period. Excellent condition

Sleeves: 24"
Shoulders: 16" across
Bust: 19.5" flat across the back from seam to seam
Waist: 17" flat across the back from seam to seam
Length: 30" from neck to hem

Waist: 15" flat across the back from seam to seam
Hips: 23" flat across the back from seam to seam Length: 25" from waist to hem

Both pieces are fully lined in fine black silk. The jacket closes with buttons and has an additional snap and hook & eye so it sits perfectly in place. The skirt closes with fine side zipper and flat hook and eye on the waist band. The buttonholes on the jacket are properly finished and work.
