Inspired by Christian Dior’s beloved pet dog, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s latest addition to the Dior bag collection is the ‘Dior Bobby’.
The bag is a classic take on some of the more recent bags the house has released, from the Saddle Bag to the Tote, and there’s a ‘school satchel’ feel to the Bobby that we love.
It’s not the first time Bobby le chien has provided inspiration for the House of Dior. “Each collection contained a suit earmarked for success called Bobby,” Dior wrote in his memoirs.
And if you made it to the ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ exhibition at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, you may remember a little dog shaped fragrance bottle – yep, that was Bobby too.
Dior’s Bobby bag comes in a calfskin leather and their signature jacquard canvas. For Autumn Winter 20, they’ve launched classic colours of black, latte, camel and grey. The straps can be interchanged to up the boho feel. It’s a nice Dior touch they’re integrating across their collections.
And we’re already coveting the Cruise 2021 colours that range from mint green to dusty sky blue. And there’s even a poppy red we can’t wait to share with you…
