The Lady Dior bag is one of the most timeless bags of modern handbag history. Its classic shape makes it an ageless icon, and it’s sneakily versatile, working well for nearly any age or style aesthetic. That versatility is no easy feat for a handbag, and it’s those reasons, among others, why it has remained a beloved bag for decades.
A truly unique combination of both House heritage and modernity, Maria Grazia Chiuri revisits the Lady Dior this season, reinventing this emblematic silhouette. Today, we’re rediscovering the iconic savoir-faire of the Lady Dior through the lens of Maria Grazia Chiuri with a look at the brand-new 95.22 bag.
An ode to Dior’s Past and Present
The newest addition to the Lady Dior family seamlessly melds Dior’s past and present, and its name perfectly represents that. 95.22 represents both the year of the original Lady Dior’s creation as well as the year that the new revival was conceptualized.
Defined by the House’s staple cannage pattern, the 95.22 once again does what few handbags are able to achieve; it is simultaneously both timeless and contemporary. Marrying Dior’s storied craftsmanship with cutting-edge innovation, cannage is magnified by Dior artisans using a meticulous technique of hand-cutting and applying heat and pressure, creating an eye-catching motif.
The bag’s architectural lines are the perfect canvas for the macrocannage motif, and it’s finished with hand-crafted handles and a leather shoulder strap, allowing for multiple ways of carry. Of course, the 95.22 is finished with the distinct classic D-I-O-R charms.
