Christian Dior Haute Couture Gray Herringbone Belted Skirt Suit, 1978


The House of Dior is noted for their unparalleled craftsmanship and timeless designs. Holding true to this esteemed legacy, creative director Marc Bohan’s 1978 collection paid homage to the house’s impeccably tailored women’s suiting that represents a luxe, high-society lifestyle.

This two-piece suit is made from a classic slate grey herringbone fabric comprised of a fine wool/cashmere blend. The jacket has gently sloping shoulders that move into gorgeously set sleeves with a boxy shape that complements the straight lines of the suit. The shawl lapel is accented with suede and plunges to the waist. Soft tailoring gives a gentle shaping to the waistline. Two large, square bluff pockets add a touch of extra function and detail to the jacket.

The skirt has a classic, knee-length straight silhouette with an ever-so-slight flare. It offers in-seam slit pockets as well. This Dior suit is professional and poised, boasting a vintage charm and the masterful couture construction.
