Dior has a new “it” bag worn by stylish celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman. The new arm candy, DiorBar, celebrates the “Bar” jacket that was designed by the couturier Christian Dior back in 1947.

Sensual and dynamic, soft but structured, the house’s newest bag is created in the image of Raf Simons’ aesthetic, making its appearance at his very first ready-to-wear collection for Dior: its transformability – two jeweled closures allow for the opening and closing of its wings – is a nod to the game of optical illusions played out in looks where dresses morph into jackets or are sliced open over shorts.

Its feminine colors and precious materials – in powder pink, shocking red – recall the sparkling draping of the dresses designed by the creative director. Modern and sophisticated, the fruit of the savoir-faire of the best leatherwork artisans, the DiorBar bag links the house’s history to its present, its heritage and its new horizons. Cinched by its gilded pearls, the side of the bag forms a figure-of-eight, a number whose curves both draw the outline of the ‘New Look’ silhouette and symbolize infinity.
