The accessory market is always shifting; slowly, one designer moves up the ranks while another movies down and trends ebb and flow. Céline had a major moment, for quite a few seasons, and then the Chanel Boy Bag followed. Of course there are others, but over the past couple of seasons, it’s been those two who have had the most people talking and shopping. Another designer will move its way into this spot at some point, and we already have a strong feeling this could be Dior’s year.

The Lady Dior is a classic, and recently I shared the Be Dior Bag with you; today, I bring you the Dior Diorama. From the Spring 2015 runway show, the Diorama plays with clean architecture on a fashion-forward design.

I had a couple of days with the Diorama bag to check it out, and Vlad took some pictures to share. The Diorama is a great option if you want a timeless, ladylike bag that could be carried during the day but works beautifully for evening. I love the classics we discuss, like the Chanel Classic Flap and Hermès Kelly, but there is something special about finding a great new design from a renowned fashion house.

The Diorama is a classic beauty, timeless and clean, ready to be carried by many for years to come. The Diorama starts at $3,000 for the small version in plain calfskin and goes up to $34,000 for the medium in shiny crocodile.

these bags come in many different designs and are unique. i can see how this can be a great alternative. however, it still feels like the foundation of the boy bag was borrowed. either way hopefully dior will have their moment soon. dior really is the crown jewel of paris fashion.

The closure ruins it for me. It’s sort of the shape, but mostly the weird pattern engraved on it.

The pattern is their “iconic” cannage pattern. It’s like how Chanel has the quilted leather look, Burberry with their plaid, Bottega Venetta’s intrecciato, etc! http://www.dior.com/magazine/en_gb/News/Cannage-chronology

It doesn’t work on the hardware at all. Much more suited to fabric.

i like it ill probably buy it because its very minimal and i like minimalism in everything . still having said this its a BOY BAG simpler cleaner and thus again i like it ! but a BOY BAG after all . then again i think if Gucci got away with making a bag called the jackie when in fact Jackie O. was wearing an Hermes trim then its all fair in love&war…..or should i say love&Dior

It is a lovely bag but falls short on originality.

Its general design reminds me a lot of the Chanel’s Boy. I kinda like the grey one but I’m not a huge fan of their bags (I like Chanel better).

I see a few of you saying that and it’s funny – because when I had this bag with me I never once got a Chanel feel from it. I think the chain strap and how it’s secured may be giving that Chanel look now that I look at it again.

Pretty but not remarkable. For the price I would get a Chanel.

The pebbling looks divine, reminds me of flat cobblestone streets! Perhaps yet another take on Chanel, for the caviar leather… Can’t wait to get my hands on it though..

I feel like the grey one looks as if dior took the two of the hottest bags right now (the chanel boy bag and the celine luggage tote) and made it in to one. Like you said, celine and chanel have been on top lately, it looks like Dior got that and just combined aspects of both. With that said, it doesn’t seem to reflect on most other celine bags, but, let’s face it, it’s a boy bag.

It’s very Chanel… where is the originality?

I think you’re so right Megs, 2015 has be the year for Dior. I was never interested in their bags (too old lady for my taste). But with Raf Simons as their head designer, they put a lot of interesting designs on the market. I’m in love with the Be Dior bag and the Diorama is beautiful as well. Especially the simple ones without the contrast stitching or embellishment. I have to admit that they’re a bit inspired by the Chanel Boy bags, but I don’t mind, I like them both.

Yes, a big year for Dior bags!
