Micro-Bag Dior

Honey, I shrunk my bag!

Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior's artistic director, is teasing us by launching a miniature version of the Maison's iconic bags. To our delight, Lady Dior, 30 Montaigne, the Saddle and Dior Caro are all XXS sized for our pleasure, because as the saying goes - and we do agree - great things come in small packages. Just like these new micro-bags.

Micro-bag Dior: in a minimalist way 

Maria Grazia Chiuri’s creative passion continues to thrill fans of the luxury brand with the recent arrival of these Dior micro-bag. The artistic director reinvents the Maison’s emblematic models. Lady Dior, 30 Montaigne, Dior Saddle and Dior Caro have just arrived this summer in a smaller version. 

Le nouveau Micro-Bag Dior 30 Montaigne
Inspired by the Maison’s famous address, the mini version of 30 Montaigne is crafted in box calfskin. It is embellished with a flap decorated with a gold-finish “CD” clasp and has an adjustable shoulder strap (€1,900).

Since then, many celebrities and influencers have flooded the web with photos of their new “mini” It bags. Are they on their way to becoming a must-have for women’s wardrobes? 

Le nouveau Micro-Bag Dior Caro
Available in tundra green, black and cloud blue, the Dior Caro micro-bag combines modernity and timeless elegance (€1,900).

Micro-bags Dior: small bags but a great savoir-faire

The traditional savoir-faire of Dior’s leather craftsmen. Here, on a Lady Dior micro-bag.

Beyond being a coveted object or simply a new object that people are snatching up, we must highlight the meticulous work of the “petites mains” in the Maison’s ateliers. The challenge faced by Dior’s leather craftsmen was to reduce the size of the original models by half. The main difficulty was to – identically – reproduce the smallest stitches, seams and the charm (jewel attached to the bag stamped “Christian Dior”) on a reduced scale. A great minimalist and audacious idea that the designer has developed – in addition to the different models – in several colours.

Le nouveau Micro-Bag Dior Saddle
The Dior Saddle micro-bag has the same iconic design as the large format model: a flap with a D stirrup and a CD signature on each side of the strap (€1,900).

A micro-bag for everyone!

The models come in timeless shades such as black, red and latte or more summery such as cloud blue and tundra green. 

Le nouveau Micro-Bag Lady Dior
Now a must-have in women’s wardrobes, the Lady Dior micro-bag can accommodate all daily essentials (€2,600).

Some choose the Rose Des Vents, a colour that echoes the mosaic that decorated the studio of Christian Dior’s father in their home in Granville. The atelier even ventured to introduce a new cannage pattern with heart motif and delicate “D.I.O.R”and heart charms. New designs can be seen on the Dior Caro and Lady Dior.

Dior’s “Micro-Bag Challenge”

Milliner Stephen Jones has now found a place to store his thimbles!

It would be impossible to talk about the micro-bags without showing the video that goes with the launch of these new accessories. Dior challenged a few friends of the Maison – such as the milliner Stephen Jones – with its “Micro-Bag Challenge”, defying them to fit as many of their personal belongings as possible into these small bags. A great campaign to reveal these jewels of bags that will be a pleasure to carry over the shoulder, by hand or as a crossbody. As you can see, we “adore” them!
