Dior Miss Dior Collection

First seen on the runway of the F/W11 presentation in Paris (oh yes, the memories, they just keep on flooding back), the Dior Miss Dior is the French house’s latest offering as far as bags are concerned. Seen here modelled by none other than celebrated actress and singer Marion Cotillard, the Miss Dior is the epitome of ladylike elegance, a beautiful bag made even more stunning by the sum of its parts.

Hand-made in Dior’s workshops in keeping with the house’s traditional standards of craftsmanship, Christian Dior once said that true luxury requires genuine materials and the craftsman’s sincerity, and the Miss Dior is all that, and more.

Besides the bag proper, which in itself is a piece to marvel at in quilted leather or exquisite exotics like croc or lizard, the adventure starts when you explore its other intricate details. The clasp features a double press-stud closure which you can also lock with the key, the charms, a Dior signature. The shoulder sling, though made up of solid chain links, is sensuous and lush.

Check out the accompanying making-of video, which details the laborious process to make a single Miss Dior bag from start to finish. Individual pieces of croc are cut up and formed about a wooden mould to get its distinct shape. After that, the process continues with most of the stitching done by machine, with the more complicated bits done by hand.

The press-stud clasp is then added, along with the addition of all the remaining details like the chain link sling and signature charms. The end result? A new classic that looks set to be treasured in any collection for time to come.

Available now from SGD4500 and up, you can view them for yourself now at Dior boutiques island wide.

    the video makes it look like the bag is merely held together by a LOT of glue…

    Any idea how much this will cost in the US?

    Gorgeous! It’s the little details; like the subtle Dior charm hanging at the end of the chain, that makes it the ultimate quiet luxury. Drool worthy! A league of their own!

    Heart stopping video… Is every bag really handmade? I want!

  • lisa says:

    Stunning bag! The video is very very interesting too! I just need 5K. Like now.

  • Vicky says:

    Agree. That chain strap really remind me of Chanel reissue. I like the quilted leather one though.

  • Joni says:

    Finally a contender to the 2.55… really nice!

    • germaine says:

      All these Chanel comparisons, just because this bag has a metal chain and quilted leather?

      I would say the whole look and feel is worlds apart from the 2.55 Reissue, though in terms of utility there’s maybe some room for comparison. The Miss Dior strikes me as more of a modern classic.

      And I really like the Miss Dior’s use of exotics – elegant, and just a little bit edgy.
