Must have alert on the fashion planet! Do you remember this mythical bag in the shape of a horse saddle adored by celebrities and fashionistas of the 2000s? The French house is declining it in new versions, to be discovered immediately. Beyonce, Elle Macpherson or Sarah Jessica Parker (in the mythical series Sex and the City) already had it on the shoulder in 2000. The Saddle imagined by John Galliano, then Artistic Director of the Dior house, had been propelled barely out in stores. With its saddle-shaped shape in reference to the equestrian world and adorned with the D de Dior in gold, it has become cult since its creation and a real darling of the stars immediately spotted on the ready-to-wear spring-summer 2000 show. And it looks like it was missed by addicts and followers alike as many are releasing their vintage model, fitting in with the trend of the great comeback of nineties fashion. With this big comeback, this is something to satisfy fashionistas in search of this real nugget with the version signed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, new Artistic Director who took over from Raf Simons in 2016. The one who is the first woman to hold this post since the creation of the house wanted to “revive the natural beauty of this bag”. But not only.

Thought practical and true “chameleon, to adapt to all situations”, the it bag version 2018 wants to be bigger, stronger, but also declined in more versions to satisfy all styles. This has obviously not escaped the celebrities and it girls on the forehead in preview!
Now available in two formats, it is displayed in monochrome or dressed in 1970s inspired patchwork with the words “Peace and Love Dior”. It is also available in oblique canvas or decorated with embroidery in bright, contrasting colors and finely beaded, all entirely hand-made.
Finally, another novelty, an ethnic shoulder strap embellished with bangs and metal parts allowing it to be worn as a cross-body, perfect for beautiful active women. “The Saddle bag is a bag that can be worn exactly like a shirt or a jacket and it is so comfortable with its shoulder strap that you almost forget its presence. It’s also practical because it allows you to take everything you need with you,” says the DA, who presented this re-release on the occasion of its last two fashion shows.
We then unveil some variations of this superstar bag with guaranteed success and assertive style, available now on the brand’s eshop, and already adopted by many French and international stars like Katie Holmes, Lou Doillon or Jessica Alba … Watch it!
