Dior are relaunching the classic Saddle Bag, which made its debut in the Spring/Summer 2000 RTW collection, in a variety of designs created by Maria Grazia Chiuri. She said in a statement:
“I thought this collection would be an opportunity to revive its timeless beauty. I consider this icon of the house’s recent history the perfect accessory to deal with this battle that is daily life. Indeed, the saddle bag is a bag that is worn in exactly the same way as a shirt or jacket, and it’s so comfortable to wear with its long strap that you almost forget it’s there. The saddle bag is also practical because it allows you to carry everything you need with you.”
It’s for this reason that I wanted it larger and more robust, but also very colourful, embroidered or with beaded fringe because, like a chameleon, it adapts to all situations,” she added.
Designed in 1999 by John Galliano (then creative director of Dior) in reference to the world of equestrianism, with a form alluding to a horse saddle decorated with a gilt ‘D’. The bags become an immediate cult object and was propelled into the limelight internationally by numerous artists and celebrities including Beyoncé, Elle Macpherson, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
We expect the same effect the newest versions.
