Princesses love it. Artists have made sculptures inspired by it. With its small box shape and thick leather handles, this bag is for long Sunday brunches at the Ritz and watching the horse races at Ascot. The Lady Dior debuted in 1995, and it has already earned its place as the most iconic Dior bag. It quickly became Princess Diana’s signature handbag, which is why Dior calls it the handbag with a “royal destiny.” Its woven cannage design is inspired by the patterns on the Napoleon III chairs that Dior used in his first fashion show in 1947. Royalty shines inside and out, from the bag’s design to the ladies who carry it. And since 1995, Dior has made 10 different models and looks for the Lady Dior. The newest models are in reflective silver, embroidered black and white, and graded calfskin. The “D.I.O.R” charms add modern accessories to this classic shape – only a bag fit for royalty would come with jewels and charms ready to show off!
