- Christian Dior Coats and Outerwear. From our unique collection of Coats and Outerwear, this piece is offered for sale online by Shrimpton Couture. Global shipping is available. A truly rare, numbered piece from the Fall 1967 Haute Couture collection. The silhouette is very minimum in design, with the emphasis on the understated drama pf the tiered silhouette and simplicity of cut. It is made of an inky black velvet with a heavy weight silk taffeta interior. It is a classic two tiered cape style that is meant to be worn primarily to just simply sit on the shoulders. There are finished opening on each side were your arms just slip through and silk "straps" that you can also use but really it works best just sitting atop the shoulder. Both the inside and outside are impeccable. I love how stark and simple it is. One single hook and eye sits at the neck so you can move without fear of having it slip of. Truly fabulous and it is true couture. Excellent condition.
Shoulders: no defined seam but they are approx 14-15" across inside.
Total length: 32" from mid back of neck to bottom hem
The cape is fully lined in a heavy weight silk taffeta of extremely good quality. The top tier is also lined in the same fabric. Hand finished and with a hand set strap of taffeta that you can put your arm though on each side inside. A large fabric covered hook and eye sits at the top of the neck. It should be dry cleaned when cleaned again in the future.
Modern Sizing Note: It is not the body on this piece but the shoulders - you do not want to be much past 15" flat across or it will not sit right
