A bag that really needs no formal introduction, Dior’s Lady Dior is an icon through and through, and almost certainly one of the first things you see when you step into any Dior boutique anywhere in the world. And whether you love it or not (we’ll get to that part later), it’s time to check out its latest interpretation. Yes, under the auspices of Artistic Director Maria Grazia Chiuri, there’s a new Lady Dior in town that’s part of the Spring-Summer 2017 collection.
So what’s different about this Lady Dior, you ask? Besides the addition of rounded studs and a shoulder sling that’s much, much broader, the most significant difference is something that you’ll only be able to experience if you tried the bag in person. Yes, the S/S17 Lady Dior Supple uses leather (in either calfskin or lambskin) that’s much more supple than before, for a look that’s casual, relaxed and slouchy.
In other words, besides a bag that’s less structured (yes, I know, you can’t really tell that from the image above), those of you who skipped the Lady Dior before because of zipper burn will have no issues at all with this. The zip is also absent from this style, and in its place you’ll find a leather flap to ‘cover’ the contents held within.
Available in at least 2 sizes (one of which measures 24 cm by 20 cm by 11 cm) and 3 colours (Black, Red and White), the icing on the cake is perhaps the pairing of aged gold-tone hardware that’s absolutely divine.
