Dior Book Tote Pre-Fall 2021

A stellar example of the French fashion House’s expert craftsmanship, the latest iteration of the iconic Dior Book Tote bag is the ultimate pre-fall piece

When Maria Grazia Chiuri introduced her pre-fall 2021 collection for Dior back in December last year, it was clear that quarantine had changed her outlook on life. Gone were the pared-back silhouettes in muted colour palettes we’ve become so accustomed to, and in their place we saw an ode to the pop culture of the ’70s, with playful prints and vibrant hues that gave us a new lease of life. Leading the pack? The latest iteration of the iconic Dior Book tote, which came reimagined in a chic beige Mizza Motif.

The House’s use of leopard print pre-dates Chiuri by decades. In fact, Christian Dior was such a fan that he used the print—which he then called ‘jungle’—in his very first collection in 1947, which saw it splashed across an ensemble of the same name, as well as on the Reynold evening gown. Monsieur Dior’s muse and the inspiration behind John Galliano’s first couture collection for the fashion House, Mizza Bricard, was also highly fond of the print, and its latest use is seen as a tribute to his name.

Now a staple of the Dior aesthetic, the making of the pre-fall 2021 Book Tote shows off the House’s signature savoir-faire and couture-level craftsmanship in all its glory— each colour is embroidered separately and requires several kilometres of thread, with stitching finished by hand.

What’s more, it’s the ideal size to carry all your essentials—Chiuri originally designed the tote to carry her books when she travels—making it a must-buy piece that is destined to transcend seasons. Available at Dior boutiques nationwide and online.
