History of Christian Dior Saddle Bag
The Christian Dior saddle bag is one of the most popular pieces in the legendary fashion house’s extensive replica designer handbags collection. In 1947, the house of Dior was launched by french designer Christian Dior. The name brand has since become a legendary and iconic staple in the high fashion world. This iconic piece first appeared as a small accessory, a stylish purse to carry your lipstick, powder, and compact. As the legend goes, Christian Dior loved to travel by bicycle from Paris to his country home in Normandy, so he designed the first Dior purse to carry essentials without having to stop along the way. It was so beloved by customers that it quickly became a staple in the collection.
Over time, the Saddlebag was invented in 1999 by John Galliano and has evolved into many variations with different sizes and materials used for straps and handles. The bag’s shape has even changed over time, but its trademark shape is still instantly recognizable through all of its incarnations.
