1959 Yves Saint Laurent for Christian Dior Haute Couture Ivory Silk Mink Coat

About

We are pleased to offer this important and incredibly rare 'Dame Blanche' titled coat from the Christian Dior collection of 1959. The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of Haute-Couture. While the House of Dior is still a thriving business today, Dior's untimely death in 1957 left the fashion world without a great dictator of style. Christian Dior designed under his own name for only a decade, but his influence is everlasting. When the talented Yves Saint Laurent took over as head designer, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design and this beautiful garment is a wonderful example. The coat is fashioned in a stunning ivory, fully-lined, heavy silk-twill fabric. The luxurious wide mink-fur collar extends down the front to the hemline. It is easy to see the level of quality in this piece; the fur is extremely supple and soft. The bodice has chic 3/4-length sleeves and matching waist belt. I adore the bow trimmed belted hourglass nipped-waist. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This couture treasure is a wonderful mix of these elements. Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:up to 37 inches Sleeve Length:16 inches Total Length:41 inches This stunning Christian Dior Paris numbered 99020 documented coat is in good condition with no stains or discoloration. The workmanship is immaculate and all hand-finished. Silk lining is in gorgeous shape. Signs of age are small areas of splitting and surface abrasion. Message for detailed pictures. A serious investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
