If one word had to be used to describe Dior’s Fall 2023 collection, it would be elegant. Revisiting the 1950s, Maria Grazia Chiuri explored the iconic history of Dior during the design process for the Fall collection, having been greatly inspired by three of the House’s most fashionable muses, Catherine Dior, Édith Piaf, and Juliette Gréco. Beautiful textures and eye-catching prints were seen throughout, and this elegant, feminine aesthetic also translated into the bags.
An Enchanting Collector’s Piece
One of those bags, unveiled on the runway, is a stunning trunk that was imagined by Maria Grazia Chiuri as part of the Fall 2023 collection. Featuring enchanting yellow, pink, and blue hues, the new Dior Malle Trunk is finished with hints of antique gold. A Dior classic, the iconic toile de Jouy print shines in the color palette mentioned above, reinterpreted to reflect the flora and fauna of Indian landscapes.
While the design itself was imagined by Maria Grazia Chiur, it’s Dior’s artisans who really bring the trunk to life. Each leather component is thoroughly checked to ensure that the motif perfectly aligns with the strips of leather assembled one at a time, completely by hand, a true representation of Dior’s storied Savoir-Faire.
A true collector’s piece, the trunk is lined in leather with an embossed Christian Dior signature logo. On the exterior, a bold CD is engraved on the Dior Malle Trunk’s closure. Inside the trunk, a micro version of one of the House’s most emblematic bags, the Lady Dior, is also revealed. The Micro Lady Dior features a lively iteration of the print, coming to life in distinct embroidery. The duo is sold together; the price is $16,000 via select Dior boutiques. Discover more below.
