This rare and incredibly special 1960's Christian Dior coat, in the most sumptuous shade of black raised and ribbed silk, is a rare piece to behold.
In true 1960's Christian Dior fashion, the tailored pointed notched collar sets off the double breasted cut, accented by 8 matching silk covered buttons. The simple shoulder line, sets off the full length sleeves. The elegant tailored cut is accented by bust darts that draw the eye to the fitted bodice. Finished with an A line cut, which boasts two front collar pockets to either side of the hipline, and a decorative back belt which is finished in a bow. This coat is fully lined in black silk.
