Christian Dior 1954

In the fall of 1954, Christian Dior showed the "H-Line" collection based on the silhouette of a young girl and an exploration of volume. Both of which merge in this elegant black silk evening coat with sailor collar. There is the sweetness of a turn of the century school girl's costume and masculine borrowing from the boys but in a very refined and grand coat for evening. A collectible but wearable piece from one of the most important and celebrated couturiers!
