In its heyday, Dior’s Saddle Bag was one of the most popular bags of the mid-2000s. Easily recognizable due to its iconic shape, short shoulder strap and bold hardware, the Saddle was beloved by celebs and tPF members alike. Unsurprisingly, when vintage-inspired bags began trending a couple of years ago, Dior dug into its archives and blessed us with the ultimate revival. The Saddle Bag returned in full force for its fall 2018 collection, hitting stores in the summer of 2018. The Saddle Bag returned to the fashion scene hard and instantly its comeback was a hit.
Nearly identical to the original, Dior did make a couple of changes by adding a magnetic snap closure instead of the previous velcro. Additionally, by styling the bag with longer shoulder straps (sold separately) the bag is more functional and consumer friendly. Originally re-released in smooth calfskin and Dior’s classic Oblique jacquard canvas, the Saddle has since been introduced in various other versions from patent leather and monochromatic matte leather to camouflage canvas and satin. Also introduced in a belt bag style for spring 2019, the Saddle Bag is as beloved as ever. Below we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide to the very many options available. If you’ve got your eye on this bag we’ve got the details you need to pick the perfect Saddle for you.
