That’s right, I’m talking about the iconic Dior saddle bag that took the fashion world by storm back in the 2000s, and now “it” is officially back on the radar!
Remember when THE style icon Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, basically turned the bag into one of her signature styles in Sex and the City? Since then the Dior saddle bag has made its prominent mark on the fashion landscape, being one of the most sought-after fashion items worldwide.
Fashion, like history, always repeats itself.
That's why, years later, Dior’s artistic designer Maria Grazia Chiuri is revamping this timeless classic with a modern twist. Just like this burgundy leather Dior saddle bag, finished with clean and simple cutting that totally adds an edge to your outfit.
A Timeless Classic
For this Autumn/Winter 2018-2019 collection, Dior travels back in time to revive the masterpiece that made its first debut in the Spring/Summer 2000 designed by the former creative director John Galliano.
While the iconic saddle shape and the gilt “D” remain as the most well-recognized details of the current design, the new Dior saddle bag is interwoven with classic and new elements that loyal Dior fans will surely be impressed.
The Perfect Canvas
Dior, as always, achieves perfection in every single detail.
When you first lay eyes on this Dior saddle bag, you’ll fall in love with the intricate 1970s-inspired patchwork paired with bright and contrasting colors. If you take a closer look, you’ll even find the words “Peace and Love Dior” meticulously inscribed on the patchwork fabrics.
Plus, there’s no denying that Maria Grazia Chiuri is ambitious to “up the ante” by adding an ethnic “hipster” twist to the classic design. From beads and fringes, to robust colors and ethnic embroidery, the Dior saddle bag is a canvas to express desire for freedom, arts and aspiration.
“Because, like a chameleon, it adapts to all situations.”
– Maria Grazia Chiuri
A Fashion Chameleon
Another thing to love about this Dior saddle bag is that it goes with absolutely everything in your closet.
Maria Grazia Chiuri says it best - the Dior saddle bag is “like a chameleon, it adapts to all situation.”
Wanna pull off a “throw-on-and-go” laid-back outfit and still look put together? Or dress for an event with a look that does not say “I’m boring and playing safe”? Dior saddle bag will save you from all the menace. Portable, comfy, practical AND appealing. Not to mention, this hot item is definitely a conversation-starter itself.
In a world where fast-changing trends come and go every season, only a few can truly live up to its standard for being a true classic and a timeless beauty. Dior saddle bag is certainly one of the only few iconic pieces that are and will never be forgotten.
