It’s obvious that Maria Grazia Chiuri, the first female artistic director of luxury French label Dior, wants a monopoly over the stuff in our closets. Since joining in July last year, Maria has rolled out numerous standout designs that are just as appealing to the street style stars (think Yoyo Cao, Aimee Song and Chiara Ferragni) as they are to some of the biggest names in showbiz (think Rihanna, Angelababy and Carina Lau).
The highly Instagrammable slogan T-shirts that bear feminist quotes, the quietly stylish J’adior slingback pumps, the dreamy gowns embellished by celestial signs...these are just some of the many coveted items that we want to fill our wardrobes with.
The latest item that’s caught our eyes? The Dioraddict bag. This fall, the flap bag comes in a variety of fabrics to suit the different occasions and outfits of a modern woman. Scroll down to find out more about the new Dioraddict bag now:
There are two sizes available
A truly thoughtful designer knows that a woman has different appointments throughout the week. So naturally, she’ll need bags of different sizes (imagine lugging a gigantic tote to a cocktail party; that’s just absurd). This is when the Dioraddict bag – available in small and medium – comes into play. We’d recommend carrying the small Dioraddict in black studded Cannage lambskin when you’re headed to a party; then switch to the medium Dioraddict in red Cannage lambskin for the day.
It’s blessed with distinctive features
The Dioraddict is anything but normal. From buttery soft Cannage lambskin and studded lambskin to smooth calfskin, exotics and hand painted motifs, the flap bag comes in several options to suit different styles. The accompanying Dior metallic lock, inspired by vintage trunks, makes the Dioraddict bags even more distinctive and unforgettable.
It makes you think hard about what you really need
While totes are perfect for the lazy woman who wants to stash away her belongings in the fastest way possible, they also put the owner at risk of ‘over-packing’. The Dioraddict, however, forces you to think about what you really need to bring with you. That means saying no to that any extra baggage that you usually carry around but don’t necessarily use at all.
You can customise make it your own Dioraddict
The other thing that we love about the Dioraddict is how we have the option of different shoulder straps to go along with the bag, making it our own. For a classy evening look, stick with the original golden detachable chain. And when you want something more casual to go with your T-shirt and jeans, unhook the golden chain and swap it for the Bohemian-inspired shoulder strap. Classy or casual, you decide!
There’s more than one way to carry it
With the strap attached to your Dioraddict, you can carry it as a shoulder bag for the day or a crossbody when the sun sets. For more formal soirees, simply detach the strap and carry it as a clutch to match your equally edgy Dior gown. Now this is what we call a truly versatile bag.
