The New Sophistication of Dior

Christian Dior bags have, in the past few years, transitioned from cute and trendy (saddle bags), to young and ubiquitous (girly bags), and now back to classic style. The new Fall collection boasts some striking pieces that reflect Dior’s return to sophistication. The Dior Samourai 1947 Knot Frame Bag is simply haute, and if you can afford it, so worth the $3,600 price tag. This is the type of bag that can stop traffic, or at the very least, will make people stop and ask you where you got it.

Elaborate Japanese hair knots adorn the outside of this lambskin bag, while the knotted shoulder strap hangs from serpent detailed-hooks. A top snap closure hides an interior zip pocket and Japanese fabric lining. And because it’s a limited edition (and so ridiculously expensive), you know you’ll be one of the few toting this luxurious piece of arm candy.

Another addition to Dior’s new sophisticated handbag line is the Jeanne Ziptop Shoulder Bag. If you dig the simplicity and lavishness and large size of the YSL Muse, you’ll love this bag. Rich and smooth prune leather is trimmed with plum suede, basic brass hardware and sleek top handles. It’s the bag for Fall. ($1990)

The Dior Samourai 1947 Woven Frame Bag ($3900) draws inspiration from Japanese basket weaving, with its intricate hand-woven layers throughout the body and strap. The serpent detail and hardware conjure up images of ancient samurai fighters and period art.

Dior has really stepped up its designs quite a few notches this season.
