Arguably the dream bag of the early 2000s (Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City will readily attest to that), the excitement for the Dior Saddle bag has been bubbling since its reappearance on the AW18 runway this past February. And if the recent global Instagram blitz—where the likes of Chiara Ferragni and Marion Caunter were seen wearing the bag—is of any indication, the Dior Saddle is back, this time bigger than ever. The new equestrian-inspired piece is updated with a handy cross-body strap, with fresh iterations such as in full leather, '60s-inspired patchwork, and of course, in the brand's iconic monogram print.
A look at the bag and you'll notice the familiar aged gold-tone 'C' and 'D' hardware at both sides of the handle, along with the 'D' charm that hangs off the front, completing the iconic Saddle design. Available in two sizes—mini and medium, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri introduced the latter, a slightly bigger silhouette to the original, to accommodate your essentials and more, making it an ideal piece for your day about town. The best part? Take your pick from a wide selection of printed canvas straps to give your bag a personalised touch. If you're still contemplating whether the Dior Saddle bag is one to add to your growing bag collection, the bag has proven its credentials to be a timeless icon, and who knows, it may be revived again in the next 20 years. An investment worthy to be made.
