Dior’s Pre-Fall 2019 Bags Rely Heavily on Its Iconic Logo Detailing

Did someone say, or rather scream, DIOR? Maria Grazia Chiuri hasn't been shy in using logo elements the last few seasons, and her Pre-Fall 2019 bags were no different. Dior's iconic logo print fabric was used throughout the collection, as was the use of big and bold CD hardware. The collection as a whole is unmistakably 'Dior.' The Saddle Bag once again makes an appearance, accompanied by embellished guitar straps, they were shown in both solid leathers and what appears to be exotic skins. A pretty printed version of the Dior Book Tote appeared as well. Some new shapes were debuted amongst old fan-favorites, most notably a structured flap bag with a CD gold logo closure and what appears to be a convertible strap. The second,...

Blake Lively attended the Spring 2019 Dior show

Without warning, without a hilarious, witty Instagram post or a getting-ready snap, Blake Lively attended the Spring 2019 Dior show at Paris Fashion Week. No one told you she would be there, but you probably could have guessed that she'd show up in something gorgeous if you'd known. Something gorgeous and — oh my effin' gawd — something that looked straight out of Serena van der Woodsen's closet circa 2010, as so sharply pointed out by POPSUGAR editor Macy Williams. Blake's Dior design, a lightweight, embroidered tulle fit-and-flare layered over a nude slip, actually came complete with a detachable caged skirt swathed in sequins. Blake slipped it over her dress preshow to achieve a more voluminous look, accessorized with a colorblock Dior purse and spiky Christian Louboutins. As soon as...

DIOR’S SADDLE-BAG IS BACK

Inspired by the bursts of creativity that defined the year 1968, when the rules of fashion were turned upside down, Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri channeled such thoughts when piecing together the Autumn/Winter 2018-2019 ready-to-wear collection. Guided by this attitude advocating a search for authenticity and a willingness to ruffle fashion’s feathers and tear down established codes, the gorgeous saddle bags of this collection are no exception. Inspired by both this desire for freedom and the Maison’s heritage, the saddle bag historically made its debut in the Spring/Summer 2000 ready-to-wear collection, designed in 1999 by John Galliano (then creative director of Dior), bowing down to the world of equestrianism, with its form mimicking a horse saddle decorated with a gild...

The Making of The Embroidered Book Tote Bag

Presented at the Spring-Summer 2018 Ready-to-Wear show, this version of the Dior Book Totebag carried by one of the models lends a laidback and summery allure. Its shimmering colors and graphic motifs are inspired by Mexican crafts. In total, over fifteen shades of green, orange, red, fuchsia, violet and blue clash and combine to form a uniquely hypnotic design. Conceived and developed in the house’s design studio in Paris, this fully-embroidered bag was produced in a family-run atelier located in the region of Umbria, also known as “Italy’s green heart”.   A single bag requires more than thirty-two hours of work and over one million two hundred thousand stitches. In addition, this bag necessitated three different kinds of embroidery stitch....

Settles Down with Dior Matte Pre-Fall 2018

Several seasons of aesthetic upheaval have given way to classic, traditional looks from Dior   A lot has been happening on the aesthetic front at Dior in the past several seasons. Celebrated designer Raf Simons left unexpectedly and took his sleek, feminine futurism with him, after which the brand appointed Maria Grazia Chiuri, half of the duo responsible for Valentino's gangbusters success over the last decade. It was immediately clear that Chiuri's vision for Dior was different from Simons' in many ways: it was far more casual, it had a decidedly more vintage feel, even the use of color was world's apart. (Simons tended toward brights or pastels in his time at Dior; Chiuri prefers dark neutrals, theming an entire recent collection around navy.) In that...
