The accessory market is always shifting; slowly, one designer moves up the ranks while another movies down and trends ebb and flow. Céline had a major moment, for quite a few seasons, and then the …
When I think of Christian Dior, all I see is Charlize Theron stripping down and all I hear is her voice softly and seductively saying “J’adore Dior”. The brand is known for its long history and timeless aesthetic. And with the re-opening of their store in Shanghai, Dior has decided to create an exclusive and limited edition selection of items.
Christian Dior’s boutique at Plaza 66 in Shanghai, China will re-open this May. With the reopening, Dior has decided to launch a limited edition selection of iconic pieces from the house in Dior blue. These pieces will be sold exclusively at their Shanghai store, which means many of us will never be able to buy them. This launch coincides with the World Expo and the Dior Cruise 2011 fashion show being held in Shanghai on May 15th. (more…)
If you are a fan of Dior handbags, we may be continuously letting you down. Personally, I do not think Dior does a horrid job with their handbag line, but I also am not moved often enough about their handbags and purses to write about them. On the flip side, I am not moved so horridly that I must discuss what a major flop their bags are either. That means my feeling about Dior bags looms somewhere in the middle ground. (more…)
I have been actively eying this bag for about two weeks now, and I can not contain my loving of it any longer. No need to keep this a secret love oh Dior Tote, I shall tell the world of my love for you. While I can not remember the last time I truly loved a Dior Bag (the Dior babe was nice but I was not in love and it was totally over hyped), the absolute simplicity of this bag has my undivided attention.
Pink soft grained calfskin leather graces the overall elegant and effortless Dior Medium Dior 61 Tote. The only reference found to Dior is the classic Dior charms, namely a dangling small C and big D, which I can easily handle. The silvertone hardware goes perfectly with the pink leather. The double handles have a 9″ drop, which leaves plenty of space between your shoulder and the opening of the bag. And the outside of the bag is accessible and practical, with two pockets.
I don’t know about you but I am pleasantly surprised with this bag. It is as if Dior finally popped back in to say hello and let us know that they did not loose their oomph completely. Sure there are some hap-hazard designs floating around, but the Dior 61 tote is the perfect hobo that speaks to the masses and will look smashing for fall. There is a brown Brandy color available as well, but that is too plain, too expected, too blah compared to the pink. Buy through Saks for $1850.
