New Look Suit

This is a chic adaptation of the Famous New Look suit introduced by Christian Dior at the end of World War II.

The jacket is shorter, rounder and more feminine than the square shouldered War time suits. This one even has the hip padding, popularized by Dior, at the pocket area of the jacket. Soutache braid and crocheted buttons add glamour. The skirt is fuller and more feminine, cut from eight pieces of fabric instead of just two. It closes with a metal zipper on the left side. The suit is made from a Scottish tweed and both pieces are in excellent condition.
