PHOTO COURTESY OF DIOR
Since its launch, Dior’s Caro mainly appeared in a flap bag style characterised by a CD twist-lock clasp taking inspiration from the seal off the Christian Dior perfume bottle. This looks set to change this season, with the new Caro Box Bag. It comes in a boxy shape reminiscent of a chic vanity bag, complete with a top leather strap for hand-carry.
Measuring 19.5 cm wide and 15 cm high, this versatile creation boasts a zip closure. This makes it easy to reach for your contents within. Within, three card slots for the ever-important ID and credit cards let you leave the SLG at home. This frees up more bag space for makeup essentials (lipsticks, lip balms, compact powder) and the like.
Gold-tone elements pair with Antique Pink, Horizon Blue and Latte, while Black has ruthenium-finish hardware for a discreet touch. No matter your choice of colour, each Caro Box Bag is crafted in Macrocannage quilted calfskin. Yes, it’s that unique process that gives the leather that on-trend puffy effect.
Earning the bag extra points for versatility, you can switch out the matching chain-and-leather strap for other Dior shoulder straps as you please. Now available at Dior boutiques islandwide, this new rendition is perfect for those looking for a vanity-style hold-all.
