Vintage 1970s Christian Dior Tricots Blouse with CD Logo Cotton Knit NWOT Size S
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is an unused knit cotton blouse made in Italy under the Christian Dior Tricots label, dating to the early 70s. This came from a lot of old store stock from the 1960s and 70s that I acquired about five years ago, some with tags and some without - included in the lot were a number of pieces by Christian Dior, but also other French fashion houses, all of it unused. This blouse is made in a greyish blue colour woven with a stylized “CD” throughout. There is a button-down pocket at either side of the chest. The blouse is made in a shirt style with pointy collar, long sleeves and with two-button closure barrel cuffs. It has a seven button closure and is tailored to accentuate the waist.
Label: Christian Dior Paris Tricots. In addition, there is a “Made in Italy” label.
Fabric: The material label reads 100% cotton
Sizing: Size 36 is indicated on the size label which is supposed to be equivalent to a US size 6, and although this should fit a small size, please rely on the following measurements for fit, noting that there is some stretch to the knit:
Neck: 14 1/2”
Shoulders: 14” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam, but the fabric has a bit of stretch
Sleeves: 25” from the shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeve inseam: 19 1/2”
Length: 24”, measured flat
Condition: In excellent, unused condition - there is a small pink mark under the label, but this is really nothing. This blouse has been well stored over the years.
This is a wonderful vintage Dior blouse - early use of the logo to identify the brand…..
