This example of Christian Dior's early work is quite extraordinary. The New York label was made in America for the American market based on runway designs, and used many Couture standards known to some as Demi-Couture. Excellent, museum quality condition. Remarkable tailored cape and coordinating dress designed in a hounds tooth wool fabric. Knee length dress with front button placket. Black buttons. Long sleeves. Front button cape is molded to the shoulders with an exaggerated collar and a complement to the dress completing this amazing "New Look" suit. The beautiful ensemble, which appears unworn, is lined throughout omitting the sleeves. The panel on the bodice buttons and snaps into place. Tulle lines the panels of the skirt to add slight volume where intended. Side zipper.

This 1970s mod (with a nod to art nouveau revival) dress by Lanvin is absolutely gorgeous! The dress features long, full cuffed sleeves, an exaggerated pointed wing collar, and includes a wide sash belt. The shirtwaist dress buttons from hem to collar. The amazing floral print begins as a woven geometric design that blooms upwards into flowers. The print's vibrant azure blue, apple green, and bold Hollywood pink lie vividly against a white background. Fantastic!
