Christian Dior by Galliano Powder Blue Knit Lace Silk Inset Mermaid Skirt
This powder blue skirt is an exquisite reminder of how John Galliano reveled in the theatricality of dressing while he was at Christian Dior. Featuring a stunning mermaid hem that is inset with pleats that fan out along the bottom, it could have appeared onstage at the Folies Bergères.
Even the point of gathered silk chiffon below the hips adds to the Art Deco-like drama of the sinuous silhouette. Crafted from an elegant knit lace, however, it works offstage, too, where the designer most likely wished it to be worn for a show-stopping ensemble that was his signature at the Parisian brand.
Size estimate: Small/Medium
Waist: 27 inches
Hips: 36 inches
Length: 40.5 inches
This long skirt by John Galliano for Christian Dior is in excellent condition. It is crafted from powder blue knit lace. The form-fitting silhouette is inset with a panel of gathered silk chiffon below the hips. The panel comes to a point in the front and back. The skirt flairs out at the hem with the addition of pleats, which dip down to form a zigzag effect along the bottom.
The skirt, which goes on over the head, is only lined at the top. It has been professionally dry-cleaned and pressed. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
