The #DiorBobby bag has established herself as a key design of the house, and the French luxury house is showing no signs of slowing down, introducing new colours and interpretations of this darling bag season after season. Unlike its predecessors like the Book Tote and the #DiorSaddle, the Bobby is mostly offered in full Box calfskin (known for its lovely sheen on the leather), with only selected sizes like small and medium available in blue and brown #DiorOblique for now.
Winning fans over with its roomy half-moon (and a tad more) design, thanks to its wide base (yes, even for the smaller size), it will allow you to fit several daily essentials with ease.
Interestingly, there’s been no change in price since its launch date, with the Small Bobby (18 cm by 14 cm), the Medium Bobby (22 cm by 17 cm) and Large Bobby (27 cm by 19.5 cm) priced at SGD4600, SGD5200 and SGD5900 respectively. Prices are also the same whether it comes in #DiorOblique (available in Blue and Brown for the medium size, and only Blue for the small one) or Box calfskin leather, so it is really up to your personal preference at the end of the day.
More good news? The Box calfskin leather ones come in a wide variety of colours, and you can always go for Beige and Cloud Blue if you only want the newest seasonal hues, while others like Black and Amber Brown are classic options that you can’t go wrong with. Dark Tan, Gray Stone and Latte are popular hues as well, all of which are available at Dior boutiques in Singapore.
Recently, Dior also unveiled a fresh new #DiorBobby style in grained calfskin with whipstitched seams (SGD6900), as well as another complete with hand-knotted fringe detailing (SGD11,000) that will appeal to the avant-garde amongst you. As for the ones in shearling, that’s currently not available in Singapore, but the local Dior team might be able to source one for you, with the furry design starting from SGD5600 for the small size.
Perfect for both boys and girls (the #DiorBobby is pretty androgynous, after all), rest assured that it is set to become a house classic in time to come, so for those still on the fence, by all means head down and treat yourself.
