While it's hard to imagine anything but chaos when thinking of the house of Dior during the period between the reign of designers John Galliano and Raf Simons, Creative Director Bill Gaytten's final collection for Fall 2012 was one of beauty and romance. Demure 40s- and 50s-inspired silhouettes included full midi length skirts, cashmere wrap tops, and a muted color palette of taupe, blush, and burgundy that evoked classic ballet style.

Get a head start by shopping these 8 timeless pieces that will remain classic and iconic staples, just like the house itself.
