The Bar Jacket
THE BAR JACKET
The quintessence of Dior elegance, an icon of the New Look, the Bar jacket has been reinvented season after season by the House’s Creative Directors. Its architectural curves reflect the essence of the Maison and the spirit of Parisian couture.
Recognizable for the extreme slenderness of its nipped waist, its soft shoulders, the accentuated slope of its basques and flared skirt, the Bar suit sealed Christian Dior’s success with his very first collection in 1947. It was the triumph of the New Look.
Each of these objects of desire represented a real challenge for the Dior Ateliers, which skillfully recreated the distinguishing volume and cut of the emblematic model. Conceived like a sculpture, the Bar jacket embodies the most excellent savoir-faire, with its irresistible hang, and the finesse of its details embracing, enhancing the body’s contours. A masterful technical feat.
