Documented 1976 Christian Dior Skirt & Jacket Set

This is the near twin of the set was photoed for L'Officiel in 1976 - that red version that we had that sold already can be seen here. This version of that set is a day version with the same print done in a purple and turquoise. It is equally as gorgeous and consists of a top that can be worn as a top or layered as a light jacket and a day length skirt that has a beautiful cut - slightly different from the one we had in red. This one was made to be this length. The top is cut to be worn loose and if you pop over to the red listing you can see where I have photoed it tucked as presented in the editorial photo. Here we present it un-tucked so you can see the full thing. The sleeves are cut wide and full and the front closes with matching silk fabric covered buttons but set so there is a wide key hole that runs down the front. It is edged in gold piping that though discreet, adds a beautiful finish. The skirt flows to the just past the knee and has flat pleats around the hip so its skims the hips beautifully. Once past the hip these open and allow volume and movement. It is absolutely beautiful and a wonderfully documented and rare set. Excellent condition

The top is unlined and closes with a button at the low neck and three buttons near the waist. The skirt closes with a hand set side zipper and hook & eye at the waist and is fully lined in a solid color purple silk chiffon.
