This bag was actually not called the ‘Lady’ bag that we know today but was originally named ‘Chouchou’ which means favorite in French. After receiving it as a gift from the First Lady of France, it was seen on the arm of Princess Diana in 1995 and shortly after in her honor was named ‘Lady’ and skyrocketed in popularity.

The Lady Dior bag is a testament to Dior’s heritage and is considered one of Dior’s most classic bags due to its elegant details and shape, the Lady Dior can be identified with its signature Cannage stitching plus D.I.O.R. charm dangling off the front left handle. Having debuted over 25 years ago, this iconic Dior bag isn’t going away anytime soon.

4. Caro Bag

Estimated Retail: $4,600

Named after Dior’s sister, Catherine, the Caro flap bag has the same iconic Cannage stitching as the Lady Dior but in an east/west shoulder bag style that allows for versatile styling. The chain strap makes it a great day-to-night bag and Dior offers additional straps for a more casual look as well. The CD on the front is not only aesthetically pleasing but functional as the clasp of the bag, inspired by the seal of a Dior perfume bottle.

With Dior’s DNA rooted in craftsmanship, it’s no surprise that the Caro bag takes over 18,000 stitches to make. It has beautiful details honoring the Maison’s heritage, such as ‘30 Montaigne’ across the back pocket.

The bag is timeless with a nod to contemporary design with its box-like shape and all leather strap that can adjust to allow the wearer to don the bag in six different ways. While relatively new on the scene, debuting in the pre-fall 2019 collection, the 30 Montaigne bag has a strong following to make it a Dior bag worth noting as we’ll likely see its popularity continue to increase in years to come.
