1970s Christian Dior Deep Blue Knit Poncho Cape w Leather Appliqué Work

This great little poncho cape is by Christian Dior from the Marc Bohan years. It is a beautiful and easy to wear piece that will fit virtually any size. The cut is very simple. The back is one large panel and then there are two panels that fall across the shoulder and down the front. It has one single hook at the neck and simply falls into place. It is made out of a deep blue wool and the edges are finished with a ribbed edging in the same wool. Running across the top of the shoulders, down the front, and following the curved line of the hem are leather paisley appliqués. Some of them are smaller then others and have darkened and shrunk so now have a different look and feel bit it doesn't detract from how overall fabulous the cape is. It just adds to its vintage charm. I have photoed them for you so you can see how they have changed. It is in wonderful shape otherwise and is the type of item that you can throw over almost anything. The cape is in excellent condition and the appliqués vary in condition as described above.

Unlined and drapes over the shoulders to wear

Each front panel is 28" across and the back is double that.
It falls to approx 43" in length once on
