1970s Christian Dior Diorling Skirt & Sweater Lurex Dior Monogram

This is a wonderful two piece ensemble dating to the early 1970s. It was part of the rarely seen Diorling Line, first introduced in 1963 as a perfume and later as a clothing line aimed at the young and hip. This line was conceived by Marc Bohan, and sold only in London, during the swinging 60s and, I believe, into the early 70s.

The double knit a-line knit skirt has the Dior logo woven in metallic thread throughout and is accompanied with a very simple turtleneck sweater, also woven with metallic thread in horizontal stripes. The metallic thread is in gold and silver on a cream knit background.

The label on both pieces reads "Diorling - Christian Dior - London". The fabric content label of the skirt reads 50% Wool & 50% Metallic. The sweater's fabric content label reads 56% Metallic & 44% Wool. The sweater is very soft, and does not have a rough metallic texture. There is also a size 46 label on the sweater. The skirt does up on the side with a zipper and two hooks and eyes.

Sizing:

The ensemble appears to be a medium size, but please rely on the measurements given below for fit.

Sweater:

Shoulders: 16" across unstretched

Waist: 30" unstretched

Sleeves: 23"

Overall length: 22"

Skirt:

Waist: 28"

Hips: 39"

Overall Length: 43"

Condition:

There is small mend to the turtleneck which cannot be seen when worn as it is under the fold. There is also a water stain on the grosgrain banding on the inside waist of the skirt. This should come out with a dry cleaning. It does not come through the front of the skirt. Really, this ensemble looks like it saw little use and was well stored over the years - it is in very clean, usable condition.

This is a wonderful outfit, very chic & and yet casual. The woven Dior logo is really striking - everyone will know that you're wearing a Dior. This is a rare and very collectible 70s Dior outfit which can still easily be worn today!
