Update, 7/4: If you have to watch one video today, make it this one. Step into the Dior atelier and see the incredibly skillful artisans put together the latest It bag of the moment: the Diorever. From the precise cut of the leather to the finishing stitches and appliqué of the stunning hardware, this is one mesmerising process that just makes us appreciate the beauty of the holdall even more.
Original Post, 31/3: If a name is but an expression of an aspirational desire, then there’s no doubting Dior’s intent for Diorever to be the handbag du jour for a long time to come. Bearing the familiar crest-shaped clasp as found on the Diorama bag, the Diorever features clean rigid lines for a classic silhouette that is made irresistibly modern through a play of textures and hues: Not only is it available in a mélange of exotic skins, including crinkled metallic lamb, alligator and crocodile, but a colourful, and sometimes contrasting, inner lining also greets you when it’s opened. To be hand carried or worn as a cross-body, this bag even comes with a reversible flap that can be tucked in for greater versatility.
