Dior by Galliano 1998 Add Campaign Black Skirt Suit With Dramatic Collar

Regular price £1,250.00

Tax included.

Important Vintage Dior Black Skirt Suit. This fabulous Dior by John Galliano ensemble consists of a jacket with dramatic collar and a daring mini-skirt, resulting in an explosion of elegance and sexiness. The same model appears in the Dior add campaign for spring 1998 worn by supermodel Kate Moss. The only difference is the colour, in the campaign Kate Moss wore a grey suit, where this is black (please refer to pictures). This suit is from the very early days of Galliano at the realm of Dior. Clearly drawing inspiration from the archives of the iconic fashion house, the exaggerated collar first appeared in 1997 Haute Couture collection (see pictures). Made in worsted wool, this jacquard shows an intricate and delicate floral pattern. Fitted and with a defined waist, the silhouette is very sexy and flattering – panelling and darts were used to shape the body. The collar and skirt’s hemlines are fringed. The jacket closure is done by 3 buttons and hidden hooks, whereas the skirt has a concealed side zipper and hook. There are 2 pocket flaps (faux pockets) on the jacket. Silk lined. This rare and stunning piece of high-fashion is the perfect example of when legacy meets innovation, making it timeless and a show-stopper. This is a suit for the sophisticated and confident woman.
