Created for those who love throwing all their essentials within an easy-to-use carryall format, the beloved Book Tote has grown to become a classic Dior favourite.
First introduced by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the original 41.5 cm by 35 cm tote took the fashion world by storm when it came down the Spring-Summer 2018 runway, and till today it remains a staple silhouette that continues to be revisited season after season.
Over time, new variations of the Book Tote have been added to suit the ever-changing needs and demands of the Dior customer. For Spring-Summer 2022, the French fashion house shook things up even further, launching the new small size that has been met with favourable mentions across social media platforms.
The new small size (26.5 cm by 21 cm ) sits between the mini and current medium (which was previously known as the ‘small’), giving you an additional option to consider.
Big enough to fit the latest iPad Air along with your other daily must-haves, the new Small Book Tote is the perfect option for a light day at work or quick day out around town.
You’re already familiar with the mini size (24 cm by 22.5 cm), the one in medium (36.5 cm by 28 cm) and the large one (41 cm by 35 cm), so you can think of the new small as the fitting alternative for those who found the mini bigger on form than on function.
Correspondingly, Dior has priced the new Small Book Tote at SGD4500 for the ones in #DiorOblique and Toile de Jouy reverse embroidery, while seasonal prints like the Latte Toile de Jouy Zodiac embroidery are slightly higher at SGD4900.
And with all 3 the current ‘classic’ offerings of the season, it is best to head down to Dior boutiques in ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre, so you can compare them all up-close before you charge the card.
