Introducing the Dior Groove Bag

A modern allure meets casual sophistication...

For Fall 2024, Maria Grazia Chiuri presented a collection with archival roots that date back to 1960s Dior. The overall mood was distinctly Parisian, paying homage to the origins of Dior ready-to-wear and the unmistakable Miss Dior line launched in 1967.

Bags were the perfect complement to Maria Grazia Chiuri’s designs, and while new iterations of House icons were presented, a distinguished new silhouette stood out. Today, we’re offering a closer look at the new Groove Bag.

New and Noteworthy

A new take on the classic boston bag, Maria Grazia Chiuri conceptualizes the perfect bag for Dior Fall/Winter 2024. Defined by its iconic shape and top-handle carry, the classic lines of the boston bag are given new life this season. Offering an air of elegant allure and casual sophistication, the Groove Bag debuts both Dior Oblique Jacquard and Macrocannage embossed leather.

A classic representation of Dior’s storied attention to detail and savoir-faire, The Groove Bag’s simple shape is further defined by small details that make a big impact, like a gilded padlock and keyring. The leather keyring is embossed with a gold star—an ode to Monsieur Dior himself, as the star was symbolic to him.

An Ode to the Freedom of Movement

What Maria Grazia Chiuri does so well, among many things, is her ability to design for the modern woman, understanding that we wear clothes they don’t wear us. The Groove Bag is an updated take on a classic shape but gives a more functional twist with the addition of an adjustable strap for shoulder or crossbody wear.

The Groove Bag arrives in three sizes: 16cm, 20cm, and 25cm. Leather versions are offered in neutrals like black and ivory, while the 16 and 20 cms are also offered in baby blue. Discover the Dior Groove Bag now via Dior, hitting boutiques tomorrow, July 4th.

Why iis there no discussion about Milan’s recent court judgement against DIOR? The financial press has been all over this.A Milan court just placed LVMH’s Christian Dior brand under judicial administration for a year after an investigation found two of its Chinese-owned subcontractors based outside Milan had exploited their workers. This followed a similar judgment in April against Giorgio Armani for “culpably failing” to oversee its suppliers, according to Reuters. 48 X markup at the documented e pense of human rights is not not only obscene but exploitive of the consumers as well as the workers.

Why do you think the news has been picked up by press other than fashion and fashion-adjacent publications? Because Dior is under LVMH and if they say one thing, LVMH can just pull out their advertisement/partnership and said publication will lose a significant amount of money.

It seems very strange that one of the biggest sites dedicated to luxury bags has not covered the most a topical and noteworthy story that exists in their subsector of the fashion industry. Even more so when you consider the recent discourse on luxury price increases and price to value ratio. I understand that Purseblog has to maintain a relationship with these brands/houses, however the fact that this story has not been covered at all makes me feel that this site is not impartial as once thought.

They may be under a partnership with Dior/LVMH and thus the contract might be preventing them from discussing the ongoing case freely. However, there is an active thread in the Dior PF forum.

Saying “tone deaf” doesn’t make sense in the context of breaching contracts.

Thank you for the insight. If they haven’t mentioned or are not allowed to mention the Dior news because of their relationship/contract with LVMH, it would concern me as a user of this website and one who tries to support where possible.

I would rather a Speedy from Louis Vuitton. Something about the cannage on this shape doesn’t work for me.

Like the boston bag style, like the leather tag strangely enough

I’m still put off by the news of Dior ‘s supplier being investigated for labour exploitation though.

If you live in the United States or any other western economy, most of the things you buy can be traced back to unethical labour practices.

I need to see it IRL but I think I like it. There have been other Dior that have come and gone so not sure I would pull the trigger now but I like it! I like the strap so you can wear the small cross body.

I like it too! But I am a big bowling bag-style fan, and this one looks different, unexpected, and nice!

The workers were probably paid $50 for these bags – no one should like any of this sorry

Wouldn’t this be a Boston bag rather than a bowling bag?

I am happy to see this style return. I own 2 vintage Dior oblique jacquard bags. One is burgundy from the 1970s and the other is navy from the 1990s. I love both and will happily carry them this fall/winter.

The Dior Groove black leather 25, pictured, doesn’t look like the same bag on the Dior site.
