This is quite the unexpected find indeed, but it could be a sign that Maria Grazia Chiuri and the design team at Dior have been listening in on what you wanted all along. Ladies, you can finally look forward to a brand-new version of your favourite #DiorBobby bag, one that comes with a natural grained finish over at the front, back, and even the sides and strap. This new option is now available at Dior boutiques in ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre, sitting alongside the classic #DiorBobby bags in smooth Box calfskin and #DiorOblique canvas.
Why grained leather, you might ask? Well, for one, the textured finish provides an added layer of protection for your bag. Having a grained leather bag can be helpful, especially for those most clumsy amongst you. The other piece of good news? The new grained calfskin leather bags are priced the same as the classic ones in Box leather, starting from SGD4900 for the small size, before going up to SGD5500 and SGD6200 for the medium and large sizes respectively.
And if that’s not enough to convince you, you can easily give it a very gentle rub or wipe down after a day out. Available in colours like Beige, Black and Deep Ocean Blue for the season, you just need to decide which colour has your heart before heading to your regular Dior boutique.
