Pieces from Yves Saint Laurent's three year stint as head designer at Dior are extremely sought after + increasingly rare to find. That is why we take great pleasure to be able to offer this beautiful example of haute couture from the Spring/Summer 1959 collection.

This particular coat is a well documented part of the collection. It appears in numerous publications and was even part of the historic exhibition of Dior in Moscow in June, 1959.
