Vintage 1970s Miss Dior Pants NWOT Wide Leg Made in France Unused Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is an unused pair of pants made in France under the Miss Dior 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 pair of pants has a narrow waistband and wide legs. There are no pockets, no belt loops and closes with a button and nylon zipper at the front. They are unlined. The fabric is woven in a twill finish with pilling - the pilling is purposely created as part of the finish.
Label: Miss Dior Made in France. The Miss Dior line was introduced in 1967 as a ready-to-wear line targeted to a younger clientele. The line was designed by Philippe Guibourgé, who worked with Jacques Fath and Antonio del Castillo at Lanvin before becoming assistant to Marc Bohan at Dior. He left Dior in 1978 to launch the ready-to-wear line for the house of Chanel. Miss Dior was made in France for the domestic market until December of 1970, when they started to export to North America.
Fabric: The label reads “Tergal Mélangé”, which translates to “mixed Tergal”. Tergal is a mix of 80% polyester and 20% rayon - what it is mixed with in this pair of pants is unstated, but I would assume that it is a tergal and wool mix.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Leg inseam: 31 1/2”
Length: 43”, measured flat
Cuff: 23 1/2” around
Condition: This is in excellent condition as it is unused and was well stored for over the years.
This is French made Dior - fabulous fit and style to this pair of pants!
