PHOTO COURTESY OF DIOR
Even though the Lady Dior has firmly established itself as a true bag icon at Dior, the French fashion house continues to push the boundaries with brand-new interpretations as seasons come.
You’ve read about the Lady D-Lite which predominantly comes in lightweight canvas and seen the Lady D-Joy with its interesting east-west format.
Now meet the newest of them all, the Lady Dior reinterpreted with a natural wicker body.
Wicker bags are typically made by hand, and you can expect the same for these Lady Dior handbags expertly crafted by Dior artisans. Each piece exemplifies the maison’s expert savoir-faire, with the hand-woven wicker forming a solid frame to take on the signature trapezoidal shape of the Lady Dior.
Aside from the standard medium (24 cm by 20 cm), the bag will also be offered in the mini (17 cm by 15 cm) size if you prefer a petite alternative, both of which are officially launched as part of the Dioriviera capsule collection.
The Mini Lady Dior (SGD7200) only comes in dark blue leather (for the handles) with a blue #DiorOblique jacquard drawstring pouch and accompanying ‘Christian Dior’ signature band in the middle.
If you’re up for brighter options, the bigger Medium Lady Dior (SGD8400) is currently available in fluorescent orange and cornflower blue as well.
This wicker style even has the wide embroidered shoulder strap which can be removed and used on its own, and no Lady Dior bag is complete without the D-I-O-R charms hanging in front.
A truly timeless bag with a fun twist for summer, what’s not to love about these wicker Lady Dior bags?
