TRENDY BIRTHDAY GIFT: DIOR'S SADDLE BAG IN VARIATIONS OF BLUE.
Hi guys! I'm writing today, after a weekend of birthday celebrations with family and friends. One of the most appreciated presents received for this recent birthday has certainly been a medium size navy blue Dior’s Saddle Bag in smooth calfskin leather and vintage golden hardware, which has instantly become the newest part of my accessories collection and, without a doubt, also my go-to for everyday occasions, adding some edge to my classic dark-blue-coat combinations.
Though the idea of fashion repeating itself is nothing new, the past seasons have felt like a true time machine of trends. Think about it: With styles ranging from the prairie girl aesthetic of the ‘60s and ‘70s to the bold silhouettes and colors of the ‘80s, the fashion world has become a melting pot of decades. And among the accessories, there’s been an undeniable resurgence of the early aughts, which was due in part to the reintroduction of iconic bags of the past such as the Dior’s iconic Saddle Bag. It’s been a little over a year since Dior brought its Saddle Bag, which originally made an appearance in the brand's Spring/Summer 2000 show, back into the limelight. Like it did in the past, the now-revamped handbag has taken the fashion world by storm with a variety of options to choose from — the latest featuring embroidered denim. Launched just in time for the beginning of fall, one of the newest styles was a denim version of the French fashion house’s iconic Dior Oblique print, giving the old logo trend a new look for the season. So, if you happen to choose a Christmas present for one of those who, like me, fell in love with the bag’s initial return, and are now obsessed over the new several versions of the model, I advise you to visit the brand website and choose among the several mini and medium versions available of the blue embroidered denim pattern.
The bag is packed in a wonderful matching toile-de-jouy patterned cardboard box, but if isn't still enough for you and you want to make this bag truly customised, you’ll have the opportunity to get it personalised with the initials of the lucky one who is going to receive this special gift in select Dior boutiques.
