Let’s face it. Dior’s Personal (done in collaboration with Rimowa) is essentially a compact accessory styled like wallet-on-strap, meant to be worn across your body or over the shoulder. The case is rendered in full aluminium, which explains the SGD3360 it retails for. Still, the fact that it measures 20 cm by 13 cm (excluding the side rings) and opens to a tri-compartment interior with several card slots and a zipped pocket makes it a pretty solid piece nonetheless. The only downside? Pieces are only available in limited quantities, and most (if not all) of them have already been snapped up when they were officially launched last week.
If, however, you love the idea of it all, the good news is that Dior Men has introduced a similar silhouette that’s part of its Spring-Summer 2020 line-up. Created from the house’s signature #DiorOblique jacquard canvas, no less, the bag measures 17 cm by 12.5 cm and is furnished with two zippered compartments front and back to keep you well-organised.
The front zip opens to 3 card slots and a long pocket for bills and receipts, while the back zip is meant for everything else like your mints, pocket charger, along with several other bits and bobs. Bonus points include an adjustable strap that gives it versatility in terms of carrying, or you can remove it altogether and hold it like an oversized wallet/clutch.
The best part? The #DiorOblique Jacquard Wallet With Strap is priced at just SGD1750 (or half the price of the Rimowa collaboration) and comes in 2 colours, Beige and Dark Blue, both of which are now available in Dior Men boutiques at ION Orchard and Marina Bay Sands. So, what are you waiting for?
