Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is an unused knit top 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 top is knit with horizontal striping in tones of light green, blue and black against a cream background.  The top has a scoop neckline, pointy collar, raglan short sleeves and is made in an upper thigh length.  The neckline, sleeve ends and bottom are all ribbed in the solid cream/beige colour.  The top is unlined and simply goes over the head.  There are two small loops, so this may have had a matching sash belt, but it really doesn’t require any belting.

Label: Miss Dior Modéle Exportation. 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.  The “Modéle Exportation” identifies this top as one of those items that would have been exported.
