A lot of great things have happened to Dior's accessories line under the leadership of Raf Simons and his creative team, and now there's one more that bag shoppers can add to the list: the Christian Dior Diorama Bag, which officially launched in boutiques in mid-March as part of its debut with the Spring 2015 collection. Below, we've got a look at over two dozen versions of the bag that are available right now.
The design is a compact flap shoulder bag with a part-leather, part-chain strap that's adjustable for different types of wear. The bag fills a spot in the brand's lineup similar to the one the Boy Bag filled for Chanel--an easy-to-wear marquee design that appeals to young, trend-conscious consumers who might find the brand's other bags too ladylike.
Most of the bags feature piped trim in an oversized version of the brand's signature Cannage pattern, but a few lack both it and the shield-shaped front closure. The initial run of the design includes both smooth and grained leathers, as well as prints, embroidery, python and crocodile, plus two sizes: small and medium. Prices start at $3,000 for the small version in leather and top out at $34,000 for the medium in crocodile.
