Christian Dior Limited Edition Medium Black & White Tweed Lady Dior Bag
The iconic house of Christian Dior was founded in 1946 and revolutionised post-war fashion. The debut collection founded a 'New Look', a phrase coined by US Harper's Bazaar editor Carmel Snow. From that moment the house was inundated with orders and world famous stars such as Rita Hayworth and Margot Fonteyn were showcasing their favourite pieces. A private collection was presented to the British Royal Family and the profile of the luxury brand continued to rise. Of all the iconic fashion moments this brand is renowned for, the most celebrated is the creation of the classic Lady Dior bag.
The original Lady Dior bag was produced in 1994 in microfiber and was named the Chouchou — a French idiom describing the best in class or the teacher’s pet. It was renamed the lady Dior almost a year after its creation when Princess Dianna was shown carrying it on the cover of a London newspaper. Since then the design has remained synonymous with the house of Dior and continues to be embellished, coloured and reinterpreted in new ways each season.
From the Fall/Winter 2012 Collection this extraordinary bag is as rare as it is beautiful. This bag showcases the brand's dedication to fine craftsmanship, taking eight hours to make and the skill of seven artisans. We love how the tweed fabric detailing on this bag draws attention to the patchwork quilting. Finished with gold hardware this bag celebrates a ladylike, iconic collection.
