Year: 1995. It be­gan with Ber­nadette Chirac, France’s First Lady, and her wish to give Princess Diana a spe­cial present when she came to at­tend an art ex­hi­bi­tion in Paris. Gian­franco Ferré, the head de­signer of Chris­tian Dior, then came up with a min­i­mal­is­tic, boxy bag fea­tur­ing strik­ing quilt­ing called can­nage, and with charms spell­ing Dior.

Diana loved the bag, (who wouldn’t?), and was rou­tinely snapped car­ry­ing it. And that was the be­gin­ning of a suc­cess story for the cov­eted car­rier. Sud­denly, ev­ery­body wanted the ‘Princess bag’, and Chris­tian Dior made the de­sign avail­able in stores. Many years later, the Lady Dior bag is one of Dior’s most loved car­ryalls, and is avail­able in a num­ber of colours, sizes, and tex­tures. From the arms of Princess D to Blake Lively, Freida Pinto, and style su­pe­rior SJP, this car­ryall proves that el­e­gance is an eter­nal qual­ity.
