I can’t remember the last time I was excited for a Dior bag collection, but ladies (and gents), I’m excited about Christian Dior Spring 2011. Perhaps it’s because John Galliano stepped away from the patrician well that he had been mining for the past year or two, or maybe it’s just the residual effect of staring at so many bright colors over the past week, but it seems to me that Dior finally has turned the page on the bland, predictable bags that we’ve seen from the Parisian label in recent seasons.

Spring 2011’s bags mark a return to exuberance and spirit that had been lacking lately, and Galliano managed to put even the unchanged leather Lady Dior bags in a new context with this florid, tropical collection. The multicolored fringe crossbodies likely won’t be a huge hit with Dior’s traditional customers, but the look found its sweet spot in colorful, perspective-changing takes on old favorites like the Dior 3D and the aforementioned Lady Diors. If this collection serves as any sort of indication of the future, bag lovers have much to anticipate.

      Wow ! This Christian dior Spring 2011, I have the Black since 2002 I bought in Sweden similar #12, until now I have it. Super Value. Cheer’s Ladies

    I love that the frame bags now come in a smaller size with a shoulder strap. Its modern yet still classic.

  • Lorie

    Sigh. Can’t we move past the fringe? I do agree that the bright colors are really nice. I love the simple shapes of the very structured bags. Definitely do not like the big laundry bag-ish bags. Looks like a sailor carrying his/her laundry over the shoulder. I guess they might be nice for Fleet Week, possibly.

    Hmmmmm. The only ones I really like here are #13 and #21. It looks like they may be the same handbag, but just in different colors. Anyways, they are my two favs! :)

  • Hect

    Interesting not my favorite collection to tell the truth but it is very unique and intense at the same time

  • Stylista

    I, for some reason, never really liked the Lady Dior bag, and so #26 is my favorite.
