Dior’s newest handbag pays homage to Christian Dior’s most cherished friend.
There are a few spots in this world that are synonymous with style and Dior’s Paris flagship, located at 30 Avenue Montaigne, is one of those places. The chic townhouse has been a part of Dior since 1946 and is a timeless symbol of all that there is to love about Christian Dior’s couture creations. The newest addition to honor the illustrious address also bears the name of
Monsieur Dior’s cherished dog Bobby. The Bobby bag is an essential piece that beautifully flows from season to season and remains iconic from year to year.
Introduced for Fall 2020, the latest addition to Dior’s handbag collection encapsulates the classic elements that have come to define the house and highlights the sleek, modern styling that’s at the forefront of its current collections. Accented with a shining golden CD at the front and embossed with the house’s hallowed Paris address on the back, the details are what elevate the Bobby to must-have status. Its adjustable strap makes it the perfect fit as either a shoulder bag or a crossbody, and the supple calfskin sides soften the crisp edges of the Bobby’s design. The simple buckle closure lends a subtle yet refined militaristic flair to this versatile bag.
Every few years there seems to be a bag that becomes legend (Dior’s Saddle Bag comes to mind) – and every single time a new piece ascends to join the ranks of handbag royalty I wish that it had been a part of my collection from the beginning. Available in two sizes and an array of neutral colorways, and styled just as effortlessly with a gown as it is with denim, the Bobby is clearly a contender to the handbag throne.
