CHRISTIAN DIOR 1980s Vintage Bengaline Dress + Jacket Suit

Gorgeous vintage 2 piece ensemble by Christian Dior in beautiful midnight navy bengaline fabric that has a slight iridescent finish. The bottom half portion of the dress is in the bengaline fabric that gathers ever so slightly at the waist & meets with the midnight navy lace over navy silk top portion. The lace finishes across the bustline with a scallop detail edging & has thin lace fabric straps. Invisible zipper up the back secures with a metal hook/eye closure. The double breasted jacket is in the same fabric. It is fitted with princess seaming front & back for definition. Features a long lapel collar that has a detachable midnight navy silk satin collar to instantly give this suit an evening look. Front flap pockets (never opened) & stunning rhinestone encrusted buttons close the jacket & are at each sleeve cuff. Both pieces are fully lined in silk. Pristine condition. This ensemble can be worn day into evening. By attaching the silk satin collar the suit is transformed into a stunning evening look. Made in USA.
