For much of modern history, South America was considered the world over to more like Southern Europe. Because of their Spanish and Portuguese tradition, South American women were chic, conservative and sophisticated. Visitors to South America would see as many Dior, Givenchy and Balenciaga dresses in the smart hotels and restaurants of as you would in Paris or New York. This suit is a licensed Christian Dior designed for the Boutique Caubarrere in Uruguay and in its day, was as fabulous as any Dior on the streets of Paris.
