This Is the Stunning Process Behind How Dior's Iconic Bar Jacket Is Made

The stylistic emblem that sealed Christian Dior’s success.

Christian Dior‘s iconic Bar jacket sealed the fashion house’s success back in 1947, becoming an artistic symbol of Parisian elegance. Known for the extreme finesse of its cinched waist, soft shoulders, basques accentuating the shape of the hips and open neckline, this is the ultimate timeless statement piece that everyone needs in their wardrobe.

The fashion house’s various creative directors revisited this stylistic emblem over the years, including Maria Grazia Chiuri. As part of the label’s permanent collection “30 Montaigne,” the cult piece has been reinvented for the Fall/Winter 2019 and 2020 collections featuring more masculine lines, checks and denim effects. Mixing crochet and Caribbean embroidery techniques done in silk and hand-woven raffia, Grace Wales Bonner combined vivid, warm shades to the jacket, while Mickalene Thomas infused the garment’s emblematic curves with colored collages for the 2020 Cruise collection.
