Did you pick up the iconic Dior Saddle Bag this season?
Ok, it’s an unusually shaped bag with ‘Dior’ printed on it 100 times. What’s the big deal you ask? Why has it been seen on so many celebrities, such as Kourtney Kardashian, Beyonce and Bella Hadid?
Besides it being a cool statement piece and radiating 90s nostalgia, the Dior Loom Saddle Bag is timeless, bold and this year had its well-deserved revival moment.
Where you once had to go the second-hand route to get your hands on one, this revamped version is currently retailing from a whopping £1,700 (at least for the mini versions). The making and construction of this accessory includes various components that are assembled to perfection by artisans – so it’s somewhat easy to see why it now costs an arm and a leg. Speaking of such, options for wear include a shoulder strap for comfort or if you’re feeling trendy, it can be styled on the hip.
Pictured (above) is the blue Dior Oblique jacquard canvas option, with calfskin leather details. Other simplistic variations include, red, black and pink. If you are fortunate enough to obtain such a desired piece, you are part of the trailblazers that remind us of a time where Paris Hilton reigned supreme and Sex in the City was everything.
So far in 2018, we’ve seen Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Fendi take the spotlight. So it will be interesting to see what other throwback trends resurface and make it onto our wish lists by the end of the year.
