For this summer, Dior announced two new handbags; Dior D-Light Tote Bag and Dior Open Bar Tote Bag.
However, the Dior Open Bar Tote Bag is not really new, it’s an upgrade version of the Dior Bar Bag. And as you roll over to Dior’s official website, the Dior Bar Bag has been removed from the navigation menu.
So what has been changed?
Here’s a view of the Dior Bar Bag;
The biggest adjustment is the shape –excessive elements like the button on the sides (to expand the bag) has been removed. It’s now more minimalistic, simpler and boxy. The bag also looks taller instead of wider.
The open bar bag is actually inspired by the ‘figure 8’ silhouette of the legendary Dior Bar jacket. It’s re-designed to match with today’s modern fashion and to be more useable as an everyday bag matching to an elegant outfit. It’s perfect for work – carry it to your office and sling it to your meetings.
What has been considered for the re-design is the heaviness of the Dior open Bar Bag. It’s made lighter than its previous version and suppler. Embellished with tons of practical functionalities inside, like large pocket with fastening or two flat pockets.
Some elements have been mirrored from the Bar Bag like the leather luggage tag with the DIOR charm inside, or like the handles stitched to the leather bag (while the Diorrismo handles are connected with eyelets).
