Dior’s Lady Dior bag

Unveiled in Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Spring/Summer ’19 collection, the iconic Lady Dior handbag comes to life in Dior’s leatherworking ateliers…

Walking through the streets of New York, London, Milan and Paris during Fashion Month, chances are, you’ve probably come across Dior’s creations dominating the street style fashion scene (more than once or twice). And it’s not hard to see why.

Maria Grazia Chiuri (who recently brought the Dior Dream Parade to Dubai) won the world over with her strikingly feminine silhouettes, contemporary accessories and her risqué take on the maison’s heritage. However, before the ‘Maria Grazia Chiuri era’, the maison was responsible for creating one of the industry’s most sought-after handbags of our time: the Lady Dior.

Eventually becoming the brand’s iconic piece of arm candy (along with the in-demand Saddle bag), the Lady Dior is a work of art.

For Spring/Summer ’19, the accessory comes injected with Dior excellence. Beautifully crafted in the maison’s leatherworking ateliers, intricate stitching and a graphic cannage pattern – there’s plenty of work that goes behind the Lady Dior.
