CHRISTIAN DIOR 2000s Vintage Oblique Canvas Trotter Monogram Jacket Size M
This rare and iconic vintage Christian Dior by John Galliano Oblique canvas jacket with the instantly recognizable all-over pattern features a sharp and very refined cut with padded shoulders, an extravagant collar, a clearly defined waist, suggested pockets (decorative only) and 7/8-length sleeves with slit and overlapping cuffs. Silver-tone metal signature rivets and buttons. No material tag, the fabric is of a denim/canvas quality with perfect weight and drape, presumably cotton plus a synethtic fiber that would help the jacket to perfectly retain its sharp and sculptural shape when worn. Unlined, beautifully finished with small interior pockets. Made in France.
This jacket dates from the first half of the 2000s. John Galliano prominently revived the blue Oblique signature pattern for Spring 2000 and Fall 2000, however, the very distinct collar with its open and overlapping details would suggest Spring 2005.
