In 1947, Christian Dior presented a collection of wasp-waisted and hip-padded designs which the American press immediately dubbed as the "New Look." Dior's collection was a repudiation of the styles of the proceeding periods and was clearly indebted to the styles and body-shapers of the late nineteenth century. "The Bar Suit" was considered the most iconic model in his collection and inspired a complete new style of clothing that became ubiquitous in 1950s fashion design.
Spectacular hat that can be worn as a sun shade or as a sophisticated accessory for a special occasion.
