Retail price $2,400.
Handcrafted in outstanding gold leather in Dior’s signature microcannage.
The geometric, boxy look of this bag means it’s more than just a handbag, it’s functional art. Atop the the distinctive texture is the iconic house of Dior crest shaped clasp in gold, further complemented with the medium-weight gold chain strap.
Cannage is a French word describing the design created by weaving pieces of cane or rattan into a strong, beautiful surface, usually for seated furniture. Dior began experimenting with cannage design after being inspired by the chairs in his private Paris showroom. First, in 1953 it featured on the packaging for his perfume L’Eau Fraîche. Since then, the two warp and weft threads combined with two crossed diagonal threads have become a symbol for the Dior house that appear today in designs ranging from shoes and cosmetics, to the unique Diorama bag range.

This treasure can be worn across the body, on the shoulder or carried in the hand. It also looks fab placed neatly next to a flute of Moet.
A statement piece like this celebrates evening wear – equally a winner with floor-length gowns or sexy cocktail dresses. And don’t underestimate its power with your smokin’ biker-jacket-on-white-tee-on-ripped-denim look. It’s a hot little head-turner.
