I just may end up keeping this…it’s the perfect weight for Austin. And It Fits!! Am I crazy?
Don’t answer that….!!! Until the weather cools off some more, I’m not going to even think about this.
Miss Dior was launched in 1967, and sold exclusively in France, until 1970 when it became available in the US. All Miss Dior clothing was made in the Dior workshops. I know, that means This is 70s, and technically not my era, but Damn! it’s not to be ignored!
This is a print on a duck canvas cloth, and has a unique belting/closure system that adds an enormous level of cool to the piece. When you look at the photos, you will see the different ways the belt attaches, and the different sort of drape you get depending on if it is worn open or closed.
The self covered buttons, the curved belt, and the wide notched collar are all timeless, and yet completely on trend for this fall.
Overall, this coat is in great condition, but there is wear at the bottom of the sleeves (about 2″ in) where the cuffs were rolled under. Not very noticeable, but there is a thread or two missing.
