A welcome comeback. Originally making its debut in the maison’s Spring Summer 2000 ready-to-wear collection, the saddle bag – an icon in its own right – has been reinvented for the modern Dior woman in Maria Grazia Chiuri’s AW 18 collection for Christian Dior. With the same classic shape and gold initials, the carrier can be found in monochromatic leather, 70s inspired patchwork bearing love notes from the brand, or crafted in fine, hand-beaded embroidery and fringed cross-body straps. Prepare to fall in love all over again.
