Dior’s artistic director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, surprised everyone with a revival of the stunning saddle bag at the Fall 2018 show this past March. Her renditions of the staple officially launch in stores today, and pay homage to the early 2000's in a unique and nostalgic way. Slightly larger to manage carrying our modern day essentials, the new design varies very little from the bag we all know and love.

Chiuri makes the following remark: “I thought this collection would be an opportunity to revive [the bag’s] timeless beauty...I consider this icon of the house’s recent history the perfect accessory to deal with this battle that is daily life... It’s so comfortable to wear with its long strap that you almost forget it’s there."

The bags range in price from $2,350 up to $8,500. Check out images from the collection below!
