Born in 1995, this bag appeared for the first time on the arm of Lady Diana, Princess of Wales, who was then visiting Paris. Thanks to such an exceptional friend, the bag found a perfect name: it became the Lady Dior.
From that moment on, the handbag enjoyed an uncommon destiny and became a symbol, an icon. With its architectural lines and metallic charms – an homage to the lucky charms Christian Dior always kept with him – and acannage motif evoking the Napoleon III seats the couturier set up for guests at his fashion shows, this emblem carries within it the quintessence of the House spirit and lends itself easily to the most daring artistic variations. Among them: the "Lady Dior As Seen By" traveling exhibition and the Dior Lady Art project, which gives all manner of artists - sculptors, designer, painters, plastic artists - carte blanche to reinterpret this timeless accessory with a creative twist. Through this approach, Dior pays tribute to the unbreakable bonds that have linked the House with art since its founding.
