Dior S/S17 #DiorFusion Sneakers

Categories:Designer Shoes

IMAGE: DIOR

Move over, boys. You girls will be seeing more of more of Dior’s iconic bee in the Spring-Summer 2017 Womens collection, which till the arrival of Artistic Director Maria Grazia Chiuri, has always been one of Dior Homme’s key signature motifs.

More commonly seen on Dior Homme’s pieces, which must have been originally inspired by Monsieur Christian Dior’s expansive Granville gardens that probably saw its fair share of buzzing bees, he also had this line in his memoirs and it goes, ‘a small hive filled to bursting, that’s what my house was like when I presented my first collection’. Dior also likened his atelier’s seamstresses to the hardworking creatures, calling them ‘bees’ as they meticulously worked for the designer and his collections.

Which brings us to the subject of today’s post and also your first look at Dior Fusion sneakers from the S/S17 collection. Featuring intricate embroidery, the little bees with golden wings sit beautifully on the sneaker which will come in at least two colour variations, one with a black mesh upper, the other, in grey. With a sock-like upper and a white rubber sole emblazoned with Dior’s logo, there’s something about this pair that answers that age-old question shopaholics around the world can surely relate to. ‘What do I wear if I intend on shopping for hours while staying comfy and still look chic?’

While there’s no word yet on how much they will retail for or when they will be launched in Singapore (I’m thinking sometime from mid-February 2017), I’ll leave you with a little bit of fashion trivia you should remember. No, that Italian luxury house didn’t do it first, Dior did.

Introducing My Lady Dior: the New Customizable Dior Bag

Categories:Other Brands

While some people want to add trendy pieces to their accessory collection, the majority of handbag enthusiasts I talk to want to add key pieces that will stand the test of time. Few bags manage to become fashion icons without also feeling overexposed, but the Lady Dior has done exactly that: it has the understated beauty of a timeless bag without the ubiquity that makes some designs tiresome. It is, in a word, elegant.

Lady Dior Bag in Gold-Tone Grained Leather - $3,450

LADY DIOR BAG IN GOLD-TONE GRAINED LEATHER – $3,450

For Cruise 2017, Dior added a new size to its Lady Dior lineup: the My Lady Dior. Not only is this bag precisely what was missing, size-wise, but also, the My Lady Dior can be personalized by adding your favorite Lucky Badges to the strap of your bag. The customizable strap allows for three badges and there are plenty of options to choose from to adorn the long adjustable leather strap.

Dior Lucky Badges

DIOR LUCKY BADGES. CUSTOMER CHOOSES THREE BADGES UPON PURCHASING THE MY LADY DIOR BAG.
ADDITIONAL LUCKY BADGES ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AT $40 EACH.

There are so many reasons why this is the perfect size Lady Dior Bag. Dior already offers a Micro, Mini, Medium and Large, all which have dimensions that don’t change drastically as you step up from size to size. But sometimes, even the slightest change makes a bag just right, and that’s the case with the new My Lady Dior. With dimensions of 20 x 17 x 9 cm (7.9 x 6.7 x 3.5 in), this bag fills a gap in the lineup. I’m always looking for a bag that is compact but not too petite, and that is precisely what this one offers. On top of it, the smaller size calls for a long shoulder strap, and Dior offers just that with this bag. As the strap is adjustable, you can either carry the bag cross-body on your hip for hands-free use, over one shoulder or by hand with the strap outside. Because of the size and the long shoulder strap, this bag transitions ideally from day to night and will easily become a wardrobe staple.

Dior Black Lady Dior

MY LADY DIOR BAG IN BLACK LAMBSKIN – $3,450.
STRAP CUSTOMIZED WITH DIOR LUCKY BADGE, SUNNY BEE LUCKY BADGE AND HASHTAG LUCKY BADGE.

The customizable shoulder strap is an integral part of this bag, and it’s also the aspect which immediately lured me in. The ability to add three Lucky Badges to the strap matches with the Dior aesthetic perfectly. This bag stands out and adds a fun touch to the Lady Dior look while still remaining perfectly in line with Dior’s feminine, classic appeal. Mr. Dior was known to be very superstitious and believed strongly in luck and signs, so each Lucky Badge coincides with the connection between luck and Dior.

I love finding out deeper meaning behind fashion pieces. Here are a few of my favorite badges and the significance behind them:

Bee: Symbol of collective work, connected to flowers. The bee was an historic French symbol under Napoleon’s reign and a nod to Christian Dior’s love of the garden.

Dior Blue Badge

BLUE CANNAGE LUCKY BADGE ON MY LADY DIOR BAG IN SILVER-TONE GRAINED LEATHER – $3,450

Badge: Cannage code featured on the Napoleon III chairs in Dior Haute Couture salons. First seen in the Summer 2014 collection, the badge represents the codes and stories of the house. It is a symbol of belonging, of being a Dior woman and a member of the Dior Tribe.

In addition to those, there are many more fun symbols and every letter of the alphabet to create a truly unique and personalized bag. Along with over 40 Lucky Badges, the bag comes in a variety of colors to choose from.

Another aspect I haven’t discussed is the ease of use for this bag. While some of the Lady Dior bags have a zipper closure at the top, the My Lady Dior has an easy-to-access flap top. The flap holds all of your things inside but also allows you to easily enter the bag without the hassle of a stubborn zipper. The interior is lined in leather, often in a different but complementary hue.

If you’re like me, the Lady Dior has always been a bag that you’ve loved and admired. But now I feel like Dior has created the perfect addition to make the bag’s feel a bit more youthful and casual. I love the idea of customizing this bag to be mine and speak to me without it losing any of its timeless appeal. The perfect, slight changes to the Lady Dior Bag have made all the difference, and if you’ve been looking for the right size and version to speak to you, it has now arrived.

Dior Limited Edition #DiorLadyArt Collection

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: DIOR

If anyone is asked to name Dior’s most iconic bag, I’ll have no doubt that the answer will be Lady Dior in a heartbeat. A bag that’s truly synonymous with the French luxury house, it was first created in 1994 and was known as the Chouchou (meaning ‘favourite’). Two years later, it was named Lady Dior in honour of Princess Diana, who, on a visit to Paris, fell in love with this uniquely-shaped bag.

22 years on, the Lady Dior has naturally evolved into Dior’s go-to IT bag, appearing in almost every runway collection in different interpretations, along with a bevy of classics that you’ll always find in any Dior boutique around the world. It has been made in countless sizes, made wide, made tall, and reproduced in almost every leather you can imagine, from the most exotic of skins to favourites like calfskin and lambskin; the list just goes on and on.

IMAGE: DIOR

And it’s not hard to see why. Architectural, with the House’s well-known Cannage pattern and metallic alphabet charms spelling D-I-O-R on each bag, 6 new American and British artists have been invited to create/interpret their own Lady Dior bags, collectively known as the #DiorLadyArt project. Given carte blanche to do most anything they liked, all the artists created Lady Dior bags in different sizes, with some creating complementing accessories as well, from clutches to SLGS like wallets, card cases and key rings.

IMAGES: DIOR

Personal favourites include Jason Martin’s monumental sculptural relief paintings that have been beautifully interpreted onto his Lady Dior bags that you’ll find in Copper, Gold and Silver, along with Chris Martin (no, not the Coldplay guy) and his abstraction works, which you’ll find on one Lady Dior. The other features a print of a drawing from one of his major works, Frog 1, which sees the little critter made into another bag, along with SLGs, a scarf and a key ring.

To be made available in selected Dior boutiques around the world from Miami to London and Dubai to Paris, (no, Singapore isn’t on the list), never say never if there’s something that catches your eye that you really want. All you need to do is to pop into your nearest Dior boutique on the island and ask.
