Because the Mini Book Tote remains a popular option at Dior today, it’s time for a refresher on this tiny little wonder, one that now comes in even more options for you to choose from. At 24 cm wide and 22.5 cm high (inclusive of the top handles), it is as adorable and as charming as it gets, featuring an open-top format that makes it easy to reach for your essentials within.
Today, you will find it available in several designs like Toile de Jouy Reverse Embroidery, essentially a flipped over pattern of the iconic motif with reversed colours that give you a visual twist. Others come in bright colours, with intense shades contrasted with the beige ‘Christian Dior’ band running across the middle.
There’s also one with Dior’s signature Mizza, essentially a multicoloured leopard pattern taken from the French luxury house’s extensive archives, as well as the eye-catching ‘I Love Paris’ one filled with red hearts all over. If you prefer something more minimal-looking in a neutral palette, you can always opt for the striped versions in beige or light pink, featuring the hallmark bayadère motif and heathered-effect D-Stripes respectively.
The ones in #DiorOblique remain a hot favourite as well, making it a staple classic that you cannot go wrong with. In Singapore, prices start from SGD3600 for the Mini Book Tote, with differing prices depending on the print you have in mind. Pictures do say a thousand words, but you should always head down to the boutiques to view and try them on in person.
