Dior “3D” Bag

carla_dior_3d.jpgLeave it to Carla Bruni-Sarkozy to get first dibs on the new must-have Dior bag for fall! France’s First Lady, who will join her husband at the White House for dinner with the Obamas tonight, was photographed with Dior’s new “3D” bag while out and about in New York City over the weekend. Isn’t it chic? From the Fall 2010 collection, the statuesque former model is carrying the teak colored calfskin version (it will also be available in black and a rosy petal, as well as lizard, python, croc and Breit (similar to Astrakhan) versions) in the medium size (a smaller version is also available). At first glance it’s almost easy to overlook the bag as subtle as it is. But look closer: note the timeless, no-fuss structured shape; the elegantly braided leather conjoined with metal brackets of the adjustable double buckle strap; the seemingly upside-down wave effect of the leather flaps and, of course, the spiked silver clasp that bears the brand’s subtle initials. It’s a great day bag for both working women and the ladies who lunch. I love how Carla pairs it with a casual blazer and oversized scarf while out for a stroll. This bag, which arrives in stores in August, will look sublime in keeping with the fall season’s pared down, minimal aesthetic.

$2,200 for the small version & $2,400 for the medium size; available to pre-order at Dior boutiques.

  1. Nice bag, but can`t stop stearing at her face. Such a shame,-she looked so much better before the surgery!

  2. really nice, looks good on her too

  3. She had surgery? she is still quite young is she not?

    The bag is not bad.

    So feminine and ladylike. I love it, and it’s exactly the type of bag that a First Lady should carry. I would love to have one. Dior is sometimes looked over as handbag designers, but they have come out with very beautiful bags.

  7. I love this new Dior bag! Great scoop.

    Looks like a bag the Queen of England would carry – kinda gramma.
