From instagrams to celebrity hands this Dior Saddle Bag is a new fashion sensation
Everything in fashion goes around and comes back around. We have seen many 90s trends come back this year in a bit more creative and attractive way. Back in February, Dior’s artistic director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, caused a viral sensation when she casually reintroduced the Dior saddle bag during the house’s fall 2018 runway presentation. Carried by everyone from Paris Hilton to Carrie Bradshaw, the distinctly-shaped bag largely defined the fashion of the early eras. What’s unique about handbags is that once a new shape gains popularity on the scene, it stays around for a quite a long while, until new iterations crop up each season to give the style a facelift. Just scroll our gallery and check how celebrities and brand are flaunting this bag with style and ease.
“I thought this collection would be an opportunity to revive its timeless beauty. I consider this icon of the house’s recent history the perfect accessory to deal with this battle that is daily life. Indeed, the Saddle Bag is a bag that is worn in exactly the same way as a shirt or jacket, and it’s so comfortable to wear with its long strap that you almost forget it’s there. The saddle bag is also practical because it allows you to carry everything you need with you. It’s for this reason that I wanted it larger and more robust, but also very colourful, embroidered or with beaded fringe because, like a chameleon, it adapts to all situations,” said Maria Grazia Chiuri.
The Dior Saddle Bag has already made its way to the influencers. Jeanne Damas, Jessica Alba, Katie Holmes, Lou Douillon, Natalia Dyer and Olivia Palermo are amongst those who already own the bag.
