The summer of 2021 was the summer of the Dior Saddle bag. The bag’s origin dates back to 1999, debuting in the Spring/Summer 2000 collection with creative director John Galliano. The saddle bag becomes an instant hit with every “it” girl rocking the bag on their shoulder. The bag was featured in Sex and the City – which made it a defining piece for the fashion house. In 2018, the saddle bag slowly made its return when Kim Jones included the bg in the Dior Homme Fall/Winter range. Luckily, the return of Y2K restored all the hype of the Dior Saddle bag. 

This piece is a street style staple, depending on how its style can be formal or casual. The unique shape, which is inspired by an actual saddle, gives the bag its “edge”. The bag comes in many sizes and color/fabric variations. The bag made Dior’s sales in accessories go up 60%. History always repeats itself and this bag has stood the test of time.
