Monsieur Dior, Mon Ami!

Of all the beautiful designs created by Christian Dior, the most accessible to the vintage clothing collector are his delectable hats. Millinery (or hat-making) was a thriving industry when Dior was in his prime, from his New Look break-out in 1947 to his early death only ten years later. Here's a sampling of Dior hats from past & present inventory at VintageVixen.com:

Most of these images speak for themselves, but the scrap at center is particularly intriguing. It's a 1964 shipping label from Christian Dior's New York location on Avenue of the Americas. Just imagine the contents of that marvelous box!

For your own much-anticipated shipments, check out our current selection of authentic vintage Dior.
