Someday, I tell myself often. Someday I will/might own the iconic Lady Dior tote bag from the House of Dior. Actually, I only found out yesterday that the Lady Dior is more than just the tote. It also comes in a hobo which actually suits my purposes better.
Truth be told, I did own a Lady Dior tote from Dior Cosmetics’ Summer 2009. For me, Dior has not topped that release till now. However, that Lady Dior compact now lives with a friend together with its bigger roomier twin 🙂
My love affair with the Lady Dior started a few years ago on a trip to Hong Kong. I stepped into the Dior boutique in one of the malls, and just fell in love with the design and the to-die-for lambskin leather. I am partial to top handle bags so this one was right up my alley.
I never knew it had a name to be honest. I just knew it as the quilted bag from Dior. It was apparently popularized by the late Lady Diana but I didn’t know that. Tells you what little I know or how closely I follow trends 😛 Also explains why I’m late jumping on the bandwagon.
I’ve popped into the local Dior boutique now and again to admire the Lady and to put it back again on the shelf with a regretful sigh. The small one retails at about RM6,000+ Far too much than even I am willing to pay.
The larger one is about RM9,000+ I believe but it makes me look like I’m carrying a briefcase so that’s a no go. The small one looks a tad too small. So, size and price conundrums will have me admiring these pieces from a far for now.
Still I can gawk. And gawk I will at the exclusive Blue collection for Shanghai.
I love the colour! And I love that this one comes with a strap. Unfortunately, this and a few other items are limited edition items and are exclusive to the store in Shanghai in line with the reopening of the Dior store there.
Lucky Shanghai people! Read more about it on Purseblog.
Anyway, when/if I ever end up with the Lady Dior tote, it will be in lambskin black with silver hardware. That too will be how my Chanel flap bag will look.
Yeah, in my dreams 😛
For now, I’ll luxuriate in the Lady Dior Soft Hobo that I just picked up 😀
Yes, a white as new snow lambskin leather bag. Just asking for trouble eh? 🙂
