By virtue of its history in strict waists and signature tailoring, Dior has always been a brand with a more formal aesthetic. Under previous creative director Raf Simons, that formality took on a forward-looking innovation, but new designer Maria Grazia Chiuri is quickly making her mark by turning the dial in both a more retro and more casual direction. On the brand's Fall 2017 runway, those changes were well-reflected in the bags, which were all rendered in dark neutrals.
Most of the models wore the bags slung around their bodies on thick, embellished straps, which is unusual on runways and seemed designed to emphasize the take-anywhere casual nature of the designs, which included both longtime favorites like the Lady Dior, as well as brand new shoulder bags. Many of them sported the new block-print logo that Grazia Chiuri debuted in her very first collection with Dior, which the brand seems fully committed to. Check out all the bags below.
