Few fashion houses are as storied as Dior and its current guardian, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, has proven to be a dedicated adherent to the house’s 70 plus years of history.
Dior has a number of It bags under its wing and the latest, the 30 Montaigne, is a rather special one; it’s named after the house’s traditional headquarters at 30 Avenue Montaigne, which dates back to 1946.
The 30 Montaigne bag translates that historical point of inspiration into a boxy shoulder design that comes with a clasp modelled after founder Christian Dior’s initials. It can be worn in various ways – by hand, cross-body or shoulder-style – thanks to the adjustable strap and for now, the 30 Montaigne comes in a one size and two finishes (canvas, $4,500, and leather, $5,300), but we expect there’ll be many more iterations to come with its classic good looks.
Complementing the bag is the 30 Montaigne ready-to-wear collection that consists of apparel (such as the house’s signature waist-defining Bar jacket) and accessories. Think of it as a small but streamlined wardrobe of Dior essentials that we imagine would be ideal for a short vacation or busy professionals.
The 30 Montaigne collection is available in selected Dior boutiques around the world – in Singapore, only the ION Orchard store carries the line.
