Take a look at savoir-faire images of Dior's new Runway bag along with the most exotic materials you can find it in

If the mini Lady Dior is too pint-sized for your liking and Diorever's structural lines are more boardroom-ready than you prefer, Dior's latest bag might just make its way to the top spot of your "bags-to-have-now" list. 


Introducing the Dior Runway bag, a wider version of the iconic Lady Dior with the similar iconic “Cannage” pattern that was unveiled during the house's Autumn/Winter 2016 show in Paris. The savoir-faire that goes behind this new purse is awe-inspiring, from the manual production of the handles to the hand-cut pattern pieces of the skin. After the gluing of the leather to the handles and making the holes for the stitching by hand, the next important step throughout the process is the assembly of the bag around a wooden form that's shaped to its exact measurements—all the lines of cannage have to be arranged precisely and meet perfectly on the three parts of the bag. According to Dior Mag, it actually requires approximately 115 elements to create this bag!

The Dior Runway bag comes in a variety of embellishments and materials such as calf hair, lizard, crocodile, and ostrich:
