WHY WE LOVE DIOR BAGS!
Christian Dior started his eponymous fashion house in 1946 in Paris, with the first collection being shown in early 1947. Described as revolutionary, he introduced shorter, more constructed dresses to accentuate the female shape. By the 1950s the Dior brand had grown to become a force in the fashion industry, with Dior dressing some of the most famous women of the era such as Marlene Dietrich and Ava Gardner. Dior was just 52 when he passed away in 1957, with his talent and vision sorely missed by the industry. A young Yves Saint Laurent took over as artistic director for a couple of years until he was called to serve in the French army, and since then the luxury French fashion powerhouse has seen designers including Gianfranco Ferré and John Galliano taking the helm.
Arguably the brand’s most famous handbag is the Lady Dior. In 1995 First Lady Bernadette Chirac, wife of the former French President Jacques Chirac, contacted Dior to create a gift for the visiting Princess Diana. A structured, black quilted bag was made, originally called Chouchou, which was soon seen photographed on the arm of the princess. Dior added the design to its collection and changed the name to Lady Dior in honour of Princess Diana. The quilted leather, clean lines and Dior charm have made this an instantly recognisable design that has stood the test of time. The Lady Dior has been revamped and is not only available in the pre-loved market in different sizes, including the cute Micro version, but the option for velvet, shearling and embroidery in a range of colours and patterns awaits.
Created by John Galliano in 1999, the Dior Saddle bag’s unique shape does indeed resemble a saddle as the name suggests, with the ‘D’ logo resembling a stirrup. Its popularity soared after it was seen on the arms of celebrities like Paris Hilton and Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. After falling out of favour for a few years the bag saw a revival around 2014 with the vintage trend taking off, and as a result creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri reissued the Saddle Bag by updating the shape and presenting it in a range of materials such a denim, canvas and fringe.
Launched in 2012, the Diorissimo handbag is expertly crafted for a simple yet stylish fashion accessory. A real classic, the Diorissimo has the option to carry it using the handles or comfortable shoulder strap, and its roomy interior ensures that all your essentials can be carried with ease. It’s easy to see why this timeless design has become a firm favourite in the luxury second-hand market.
The Diorama crossbody made its debut in 2015 during Raf Simons’ time as creative director and its classic-meets-modern look made it an instant success. Keeping the design clean but striking with its geometric lines, this bag is available in so many different options that it can be as simple or eye-catching as you please. For something more rock ‘n’ roll choose the brand’s micro-cannage design in a metallic shade, a studded option or even ultra matte.
