Why does everybody fight over the Dior Saddle?

This pattern you have seen it everywhere these last months, this repetitive pattern of the Saddle by Dior, an icon of the 2000s. Everybody wants it, we all desire it because it is modern and vintage at the same time. An iconic bag reinvented to be the IT-bag of the moment. This is why the Saddle is coming in front pages.

This pattern and this shape, we all have seen them somewhere, they are inside our heads forever because of Maria Grazia Chiuri. She brings it up to date offering a variety of colors and patterns. It is impossible to have the same one as your best friend. Maria Grazia Chiuri is delighted about that. According to madame.lefigaro.com it’s “[for her] first ready-to-wear show at Dior, in September 2016, [that she] worked this Oblique canvas, drawn by Marc Bohan in 1967, which initiates the return of the logo.” A bargain for those who are passionate with this vintage logo. The vintage pieces are now rising and they cost much more. Perfect to be vintage and modern at the same time.

The vintage designs are also declined in several colors and the price range is about 600€. To put a hand on it, I advise you to shop it on VestiaireCollective.com for example or on eBay which will be international, or TheRealReal.You will need to rummage through to buy it at a reasonable price in perfect condition. Concerning the colors, you have choices, tell me… which one?


  1. Saddle nude, 2 600€ 2. Saddle blood, 7 066€/3. Saddle blue sky, 1 211€/4. Saddle sky, 2 600€/ 5. Saddle vine, 2 600€/ 6. Saddle black, 2 600€/ .7 Saddle skin, 2 600€

Even if Maria Gracia is still asking herself why John Galliano, former artistic director of the Dior house, was inspired by a horse saddle as a pattern of this IT-bag, it is, however, the flagship bag of the collections and we don’t expect it to be replaced for the moment. What fashion icons see in this bag it’s, first of all, its originality but also because it can be styled with your entire wardrobe and all the style you have in it. First, you have choices among hundreds of patterns but also because it can be customized, the strap can be changed among hundreds of styles, all more original than the others. Thus, it’s its authenticity that people see in this bag.

      Je le décris personellement comme une pure merveille, j’adore vraiment la forme qu’on lui a donné et avec ce motif, il est vraiment canon ! Merci pour ton commentaire Charlene.
