Dior‘s artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri recently turned to the Dior archives for the house’s Fall/Winter 2018 ready-to-wear collection, re-releasing the iconic Saddle bag which first debuted in the Spring/Summer 2000 show. The bag, designed by Dior’s previous creative director John Galliano, has famously been seen on early-oughties style stars from Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and The City to none other than Beyoncé herself. The popular cult piece has been revisited in two styles – a monochromatic leather featuring 1970s inspired patchwork reading ’Peace, Love Dior,’ and in an oblique-shaped canvas embellished with finely-beaded hand-embroidery and bright designs that contrast in color. The change in the bag’s iconic small strap is a longer, fringed and metal strap to be worn across the body. ”I thought this collection would be an opportunity to revive it’s timeless beauty,” Chiuri says.

“The Saddle bag is a bag that is worn in exactly the same way as a shirt or jacket, and it’s so comfortable to wear with it’s long strap that you almost forget it’s there. The bag is also practical because it allows you to carry everything you need with you. It’s for this reason that I wanted it larger and more robust, but also very colorful, embroidered or with beaded fringe because, like a chameleon, it adapts to all situations,” Chiuri added.
