PHOTO COURTESY OF DIOR
Before diving into the article proper, here’s a quick question. How many of you are familiar with the differences between the Lady D-Lite and Lady Dior?
Well, the former comes predominantly in full canvas, down to the handles and wide shoulder strap. Many consider it the casual alternative to the Lady Dior. Rounding up the more obvious contrasts between the two, the Lady D-Lite also sports the CHRISTIAN DIOR PARIS signature. This isn’t available on the classic range of Lady Dior handbags.
Dior’s Spring-Summer 2020 collection saw the launch of the Lady D-Lite. It came in a single medium size, at 24 cm wide and 20 cm high. The offerings have since grown to include a Mini and Large for extra variety.
The mini is significantly smaller than its medium predecessor. At 17 cm by 15 cm, it is a petite offering of clearly adorable proportions. Currently, the Mini Lady D-Lite (SGD6700) is available in Beige Multicolour Mizza embroidery.
The large, on the other hand, is almost the size of the medium Book Tote, but with a concealed inner flap and interior zip pocket for extra security. At 32 cm wide and 25 cm high, the large Lady D-Lite is perfect for weekends out. Or even weekdays, when you need extra space for an iPad Air or A4 documents.
For now, the large Lady D-Lite comes in Brown Toile de Jouy (SGD7200) and Grey Cannage embroidery (SGD7300).
More options are always a good idea. And since you now know it better, why not consider the mini or large size for your next Lady D-Lite handbag?
