In the world of luxury bags, there are trendy “it” bags, and the timeless classics. The latter is a statement of unwavering elegance, always in season and a fixture of personal style. A prime example: The My Lady Dior bag.

The Lady Dior bag has long been one of Christian Dior’s hallmarks. Made famous by a league of dedicated celebrity fans, the bag is instantly recognisable by the quilted leather Cannage stitching, which were modelled after woven patterns on the Napoleon III-period furnishings and the Louis XV chairs used during Monsieur Dior’s fashion shows in 1947.

The maison’s Cruise 2017 line sees a rework of the bag, enhancing the Lady Dior’s prestigious heritage with Christian Dior’s couture sensibilities.

The petite My Lady Dior bag’s topstitching takes a more youthful, feminine turn with rounded edges on soft lambskin. In an effort to make each My Lady Dior bag meld with its carrier’s personality, the Cruise 2017 collection offers clients the option to adorn their bag with Lucky Badges.

Think of it as owning a luxurious lucky charm bracelet. The pretty badges are designed after signature Christian Dior motifs and Edenic elements inspired by Dior’s love for flowers, made to be pinned on the My Lady Dior’s shoulder strap.

Meet the My Lady Dior bag, a customisable reworking of a beloved Christian Dior classic for the Cruise 2017 collection.

Customisation aside, the My Lady Dior comes in four bold new hues — mimosa yellow, fire-engine red, a metallic gold, and azure blue. If muted tones are still your pick, the original colour selection of black, pink and silver will also be available for personalisation. Whatever the shade, dressing the bag up with your selection of Lucky Badges is a novel way to say, “c’est moi”.

Each My Lady Dior Bag retails for S$5,200, with three Lucky Badges. Additional Lucky Badges are priced at S$55. Available at Christian Dior boutiques.
