If you can’t tell, PurseBop has had a bit of a Dior kick this week! First, we found out everything you need to know about the Lady Dior bag. Now, we’re exploring some of the new thrills Dior has to offer this fall.
Introducing the Dune by Dior bag…
The Dior Dune Bag first appeared on the runway in the Fall/Winter 2015 collection. The Dune Bag is designed with many points of inspiration in mind. Raf Simons, Dior’s creative director, played a lot with animal motifs, exotic skins and camouflage details in the FW’15 line. In keeping with the theme, the Dune bag is inspired by sand dunes. Exterior styling aside, the Dune bag is all about functionality and sophistication. As quoted on the Dior website,
“[The Dune Bag] bag can be carried confidently in the hand or over the shoulder for a lighter look, allowing it to accommodate the free spirit of the new Dior woman.”
This flap bag comes in two sizes: Regular Dune (29 x 19.5 x 10 cm) and Small Dune (23 x 16 x 7 cm). In terms of structure, the Dune bag is strikingly similar to the Be Dior bag, but features a rounder bottom and a wider top handle. The top handle and longer strap allow the bag to be carried by hand, over the shoulder or across the body. Until now, most versions of the Dune Bag have come in exotic skins like alligator and python. However, the leather options will be available in limited colors. The small Dune bag in grained calfskin starts at $3,500 USD.
