When you hear the words “Christian Dior”, you immediately associate it with class, glamour and elegance. Each of these characteristics are identified in our very own collection of vintage Christian Dior handbags; they are the epitome of ladylikeness and sophistication.The Christian Dior brand was founded in 1947 by the French fashion designer Christian Dior. The brand later became known simply as Dior. Dior’s first fashion collection was presented to the world that same year and included nipped-in silhouettes and fuller skirts. He broke with fashion convention following World War II designing clothes to flatter a woman and enhance her shape.
It wasn’t until 1995 that the first Dior bag was introduced. It was titled the “Lady Dior” after the late Princess Diana fell in love with it. It went on to become the biggest ‘it-bag’ of the 20th Century. Each one is individually handcrafted and made of 130 pieces of the finest lambskin leather, hand stitched and cut by artisans.
Dior bags have withstood the ever-changing trends over the last 60-years because of their classic shapes and the use of high-quality precious materials and fabrics. As Dior once said; ”Real luxury requires the best materials and the best craftsmanship.” You can trust that our vintage Dior bags will stand the test of time.
In 2016, the Lady Dior bag had a revamp and still takes pride of place on the most fashionable arms across the globe. Owning a bag from Dior will never go out of style. If you want to get your hands on your very own ‘it-bag’ then look no further than our sophisticated used Dior bags here at Open for Vintage.
