Lady Dior Bag Gets A Makeover In Sixth Edition Of 'Dior Lady Art' Project
Earning its title Lady Dior from when the bag used to swing off Princess Diana's arm, following Lady Spencer wherever she went, the handbag has since become a rather important staple for the house of Dior, now known as one of Dior's best-known (and loved) accessories. Alas, who said 'it bags' need to remain untouched?
Ever since 2016, Dior has looked to a roster of artists to transform the little handbag, inviting each individual to mark the accessory with their creative vision. Lying at the heart of the initiative's sixth edition is freedom; freedom for the chosen artists - hailing from Dubai, Shanghai, Tokyo and Dublin - and the freedom for the bag to be completely transformed.
Driven by a spirit of innovation, each design detail is a nod to uniqueness and individuality, including the added lucky charms that adorn each design, reminiscent of the lucky talismans that the famously superstitious Monsieur Dior carried around with him wherever we went - and action Lady Diana mirrored, toting her Lady Dior with her just about everywhere. In the ultimate homage to modern craftsmanship, the twelve artists involved are: Manal Aldowayan, Gisela Colón, Johan Creten, Genieve Figgis, Gigisue, Antonin Hako, Zhang Huan, Leonhard Hurzlmeier, Yukimasa Ida, Daisuke Ohba, Li Songsong, and Lina Iris Viktor.
