Watch How the Iconic Lady Dior Bag Is Made

A classic loved for many decades by figures like Princess Diana.

The Lady Dior handbag, previously named the Chouchou, is an iconic silhouette that has been loved for many years since its debut in 1995. The timeless piece was first seen in the arm of the late Princess Diana during the opening of the Paul Cézanne retrospective at Paris‘ Grand Palais that same year.

After being gifted the accessory by the French fashion house, the silhouette became one of Lady Di’s go-to bags “because it suited [her] well,” she stated according to the brand. As a result, the Chouchou was renamed the Lady Dior.

Representing the label’s vision of elegance and beauty, the bag is crafted from lambskin and features a quilted texture thanks to its Cannage stitching. Adding an elegant touch are the gold-finish metal “D.I.O.R.” charms found on the handle. You can carry the bag by hand, wear it over the shoulder or as a crossbody.

Watch how the iconic Lady Dior is made above and head over to Dior’s website to shop the piece in an array of sizes and colorways.
