The Dior Saddle Bag - What I Think of Them?

If you're a fashion lover and a crazy handbag lady like me, you will have heard about the Dior Saddle bag. It is one of the most iconic and recognisable bags of all time. Even more so, recently when Maria Grazia decided to relaunch the Dior Saddle bag in July, and the fashion world went completely crazy.

The original Dior Saddle bag was first launched in 1999 when John Galliano was at the helm of the House of Dior. It was seen on the arms of many 'It' fashion girls in the late '90s and early 2000. It was also featured in the SATC series, carried by non-other Carrie Bradshaw.

I was fairly young at that time and wasn't even an income earner. But it was also the time when the handbag monster in me was unleashed. 

Christian Dior is the first luxury brand that I was introduced to and I immediately fell in love with their iconic Lady Dior and Dior Saddle collection. Because of this, I always consider myself as a Dior lady and it is definitely the brand that I have the biggest collection of handbags from. 

The resurgence of the Dior Saddle bag has sparked a healthy debate amongst fashionistas including my circle of friends. Some are unsure about it while others absolutely loved it! To be honest, the Dior Saddle bag is not the most generous in terms of space and size and definitely not the most practical when it comes to functionality due to its shape. Regardless, I absolutely love it. I think as a bold fashion statement piece, the Dior Saddle bag easily wins compared to other brands. It is simply iconic and recognisable in its own right and for the Dior brand. 

I am lucky that the Dior Saddle bag that I own is from the original collection and while in the last 10 years it had mainly sat in the wardrobe not seeing the light of days, I never regretted getting it. Every time I take it out and wonder if I should continue keeping it, the answer is always a YES! I love it that much! 

With the recent reissue making a come bag, I took it out recently. Notwithstanding that I dressed in my usual classic style, carrying the Dior Saddle bag totally elevated the look. It screams 'Look at me' and it was totally all about the Dior Saddle bag. 

Do you have a view on the Dior Saddle bag? What do you think of them?
