Dior’s recently revived Saddle Bag and bestselling Book Tote are deserving icons in their very own right, revisited season after season with new interpretations that are widely anticipated. But instead of resting on its laurels, it continues to push the boundaries as far as bags are concerned, and what you are now looking at is the latest one to join its fold, the 30 Montaigne Bag.
The key standout piece at Dior’s Fall-Winter 2019 collection presented by Maria Grazia Chiuri, it is one that was created as a fitting tribute to their historic building on 30 Avenue Montaigne. From the oversized CD clasp lock in the front that pays homage to the legendary couturier’s initials, to the back of the bag where you’ll find 30 Montaigne embossed in leather, a nod to the bag’s official name.
The 30 Montaigne Bag opens to a roomy interior that’s perfect for storing your essentials and fitted with extra pockets within that’s great for organising everything neatly, along with a zip compartment should you ever need that extra bit of security. There’s even a slip pocket fitted at the back (just below the 30 Montaigne logo) that’s great for storing notes and receipts without having to undo the clasp to get into the main compartment.
Available in a single size that measures 24 cm by 17 cm, the bag will be available in a #DiorOblique canvas version (SGD4500) in colours like Blue or Burgundy. For those who love a full leather piece, they will come in Black, Orage, Rose, Terre de Sienne and White, crafted in a lush box calf leather that’s priced slightly higher at SGD5300. And yes, both variations are now available at Dior boutiques in Singapore for your shopping pleasure.
