The Making of Dior’s New Mizza Motif Bag

This summer Dior Presents the Mizza Motif bag inspired by an iconic print from the House’s history.


Leopard print has long adorned Christian Dior’s designs starting with his very first collection unveiled in 1947.



This flecked motif, then called “Jungle,” appeared on an ensemble of the same name and on the Reynold evening gown and has since been reinterpreted season after season by the House’s successive Artistic Directors.



In homage to Mizza Bricard, Monsieur Dior’s muse of muses, creations designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri for the Fall 2021 line are adorned with a new version of the leopard print, newly reinvented with the excellence of savoir-faire.

Synonymous with freedom, leopard print graces House icons such as the Bar jacket or the Saddle, Lady D-Lite and Dior Book Tote bags. Also featured on Baby Dior creations as well as on decorative objects and tableware by Dior Maison, this bold motif celebrates irresistibly modern elegance.

The Dior Book Tote is made with the same savoir-faire that embodies all of the House’s ready-to-wear and accessories. Put together by hand, by Dior’s ateliers this iconic accessory is the perfect companion for the summer months.


This iconic print, freshly revisited with a pop twist, brings a touch of audacity and modernity to every silhouette. Discover the exceptional craftsmanship behind it in the heart of the Dior workshops in Italy.
