You know what people, the media and a lot of movies use to say: ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!’ – well I have to admit that it is true but nothing actually really can mess with a bag more beautiful than any shaped diamond could be. One of my absolute favourite bags is unfortunately only for women, but because of the fact I cannot have it, I have to write about it in order of feeling a bit closer to it – the Lady Dior Bag.
At the Cezanne Art Exhibition which was sponsored by Dior Corporation in 1995 at the Paris Grand Palais Mrs. Chirac has sent Princess Dianna a new model of the newest Dior handbag as a gift of honour. Afterwards the label gave this special model the elegant and graceful name Lady Dior. This bag has become one of Dior’s basic mainline handbags.
The Cannage pattern used by the Lady Dior handbag, which is geometrically grid stitched onto supple lambskin [the stitches are dedicated to the steel pattern on the Eiffel Tower, which is of course the most known French monument], together with its Dior’s charms enable this bag to become an immortal legend among all the bags in the world and of course in design history.
As the new face of Dior [since 2008] Marion Cottilard is the perfect vision for presenting the Lady Dior as what it actually is – a shining symbol of femininity, elegance and grace.
For me the Lady Dior bag is [besides the Birking bag of course] one of the most marvelous, most beautiful and most exclusive bags in fashion history. It-pieces are those that survive years, centuries and trends without losing their shine, their image and their elegance. Nothing is more fast moving and more fast-paced than fashion – that’s what even those know who are not in fashion industry, but what I know and what everyone else should be aware of, is the fact that fashion is the only thing we all have in common – we live in it, we feel it on our skin and we are surrounded by it. Every single day. Every single time. Until the very end of our life.
I love this world. Fashion world. It is perfect. It is complicated and simple. It is inspiring. It is special. It is what it is – wonderful.
