Christian Dior Silk

In 1950 the House of Dior licensed the manufacture of luxury accessories, including beautiful Silk Twill head scarves designed under head designer Marc Bohan.  We currently have two of these 1970s Christian Dior scarves mounted on silk and framed in perspex boxes.  One is a stylized flower reminiscent of a Georgia O'Keefe painting, the other a floating floral design.  Vintage luxury with a modern twist!
