Timeless statements of elegance and sophistication, Dior bags have become a coveted designer accessory for refined fashion-lovers around the world. With the brand’s unwavering fidelity to meticulous craftsmanship, each Dior bag is a testament to impeccable quality and exquisite aesthetics. Whether you’re carrying one of their classic designs or something from the fashion house’s more recent collections, Dior bags are the ultimate accessory for those who value style and class.
The History of Dior
Originally founded in 1946 by Christian Dior in Paris, the brand quickly made waves within the fashion industry with its 1947 New Look collection, which featured a cinched waist and full skirt. As time went on, Dior began its foray into handbags, with each one reflecting the changing trends of the time. But it wasn’t until the mid 1990s that the iconic “Lady Dior” bag made its first celebrity appearance on the arm of Princess Diana. A structured bag, the Lady Dior was made of high-quality leather with a quilted pattern and a signature ‘Cannage’ stitching featuring two short top handles and a removable shoulder strap. The bag quickly became—and still is—a must-have accessory for women around the world. Having enjoyed the artistic direction of numerous creative directors over the years, from Yves Saint Laurent to John Galliano, Dior bags have continued to represent the best of aesthetic innovation within the fashion industry.

The Lady Dior bag, first introduced in 1994, quickly gained a cult following after Princess Diana developed an affinity for the design and made it her signature accessory. The bag features the iconic quilted pattern, inspired by the Napoleon III chairs found in Christian Dior’s salons, as well as a silver- or gold-tone D.I.O.R. charm dangling from the top handle. The Lady Dior is truly a versatile choice for any occasion.
The Dior Saddle Bag: A Nostalgic Favourite
Originally introduced in 1999, the Dior Saddle bag became an instant hit with fashion-lovers and celebrities alike, by virtue of its unique curved shape and statement-making design. The bag’s iconic silhouette is inspired by equestrian elements and features the signature Dior Oblique canvas pattern, as well as a distinctive oversized ‘D’ charm. A popular designer piece, the Dior Saddle Bag is available in a range of gorgeous colours and materials, including patent leather and denim.

Quality Craftsmanship and Materials
From the fine stitching to the scintillating hardware, every Dior bag is handcrafted by skilled Dior ateliers, ensuring that every detail conforms to the brand’s exacting standards. Dior's dedication to using only the highest-quality materials is evident in the selection of supple leathers, rich textiles, and precious metals used to produce their coveted accessories.
