It’s officially leopard season at Dior, all thanks to the enigmatic Mizza motif which is inspired by a vintage design taken from their extensive archives. Some of the bags feature intricate embroidery on canvas, while others are crafted in pony-hair calfskin to mimic the look (and feel) of leopard fur. With a pretty diverse range of bags for different needs, choose from miniature totes to shoulder bags and even top-handle styles, which also means there is something for everyone.
And as always, if you are intrigued by something here, do head down to Dior boutiques in Singapore at ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre to find out more.
01 – Starting with the elegant Medium Lady D-Lite (SGD7300), it measures some 24 cm by 20 m which is just enough for a good day’s worth of essentials. Sold together with a reversible and removable shoulder strap that’s also pretty wide in a matching leopard print, it gives you an alternative way of carrying the bag besides the dual top handles.
02 – The St Honoré (SGD7300) is a relatively new design dreamt up by Maria Grazia Chiuri, coming in luxurious pony-hair calfskin with the beige multicolour Mizza that makes for a truly eye-catching print. One of the key elements would be the flap that’s actually tucked within the bag, punctuated with a CD clasp in front for a beautifully streamlined silhouette complete with sleek leather top handles.
03 – Go for the Caro (SGD6000) if you prefer something that’s more compact and slightly smaller, with the adjustable shoulder strap giving you an extra way of carrying this little number. Or you can just use it as a clutch if you prefer, making this a fuss-free piece that’s great for the grab-and-go.
04 – No collection is complete without the Book Tote, especially with the one in mini size (SGD3900) that’s as lightweight and as tiny as it gets. A staple style at Dior, this miniature tote can comfortably hold a lipstick, cardholder, your smartphone and even a pair of shades for your quick weekend lunch out with the girls.
