This It-bag became popular in the early ’00s when John Galliano was still head designer. It’s best known for being a small and nifty canvas bag which came in various colors and prints. But what made it popular were the Dior prints on the fabric and the big gold “D” on the stirrup and/or buckle.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, the Saddle bag’s comeback may have been encouraged by the number of Instagram influencers who were rocking the vintage bag. The accessory was an obvious standout amid Dior’s 1960’s protest theme for fall/winter 2018. Aside from the classic logomania design, they brought out new editions like black leather and beaded.
Voguepreviously predicted its return when former 2NE1 member CL was spotted carrying an original Saddle bag in 2016. Bella Hadid was also rocking a denim version of the bag last year.
It’s safe to say that old and new fans of the Dior Saddle bag would be grabbing them once it goes back in stores. Aside from its vintage tag, it’s also the perfect bag for a time when compact bags are becoming popular. (Check out some of our Handbag Edits and you’ll see what we mean.)
So, will you be copping this bag? If yes, what design would you go for?
