This was just too good to pass it up. Christian Dior‘s John Galliano presented their Spring ’06 collection with an event garlanded with the kind of pomp and power only the French can bestow upon the business of fashion – as Style.com’s Sarah Mower described the important fashion event in Paris’ Grand Palais.

As we don’t care as much for the dresses (they are fantastic nonetheless), the full focus of our attention definitely aims for the dazzling Dior Saddle bag, which was presented in a new, softly folded variation that we had yet to see. Although the colors suggest more of a fall feeling than spring, the shape and materials suggest a very comfortable shoulder bag with its traditional saddle shape, yet modern assets in form of a brass key and a medallion. Will ’06 be the Year of the Key? We sure will see, but for now I’ll leave you with the first impressions of the new Dior Saddle:
