Vintage Dior Boutique Now Open at Yoox

Yoox is currently playing hostess to a most fabulous fashion party. Exclusive to its site is an extensive selection of vintage pieces from the Maison Dior. Broken into three eras, the 40s-50s, 60s-70s, and 80s and beyond, the collection features remarkable RTW and accessories "plucked from rare sources from around the world: prestigious auction houses like Christie's, notable vintage collectors like Franco Jacassi and important private collections."

We are dazzled by the coats and dresses from the 60s and 70s particularly, but the entire collection is a tour de force. Take this dress from the late '60s for example:

It is every bit as relevant, elegant and fashion-forward as today's top empire sheaths. Fashion forward indeed! ($ 1,560)
