Sometimes in fashion, the phrase “ask and ye shall receive” holds true. I’m pleased to say that appears to be the case with my recent complaint about Dior’s somewhat tedious bag line – a few of the bags from the brand’s recently presented Resort 2011 line caught my attention.
For me, the clear standout of the line is this Dior Resort 2011 Tote, which doesn’t have an official name or price as of yet. Although the design is fairly simple, it manages to represent everything that a Dior bag should be – it’s feminine, Parisian and obviously designed by Dior.
The quilting on this bag is so soft and delicate that I wondered for a moment if my eyes were deceiving me and the bag wasn’t actually made of leather. It appears to be lambskin, however, and I can only imagine how soft this bag will be when it hits stores. The beautiful dove grey color only makes it better, and I even somehow like the sparkle of rhinestone-encrusted handle attachments. As a 24-year-old single girl, I would be happy to carry this bag, but I could see it on the arms of women from several generations. Well done, Dior – I hope this means there’s more to come.
