Maria Grazia Chiuri re-introduced the epic Dior logo into the bag collection this season. (We still wonder why nobody thought of that before but that’s another story.) Besides ourselves, also Rihanna seems to be a huge fan of the Oblique Canvas bag. Photographers spotted Riri wearing different models at several locations. Even during her meeting with Brigitte Trogneux (a.k.a. Madame Macron).
We already predicted after the runway show that the Oblique Canvas bag would become a huge hit. If you don’t have the financial resources to buy a new one, we can assure you there are plenty of beautiful vintage versions to be found. However we also have to admit that Maria Grazia Chiuri did a great job with the new models. So saving money may also be a very interesting option.
A little logo history…
The logo on canvas was originally designed by Marc Bohan in 1967, after Christian Dior already left his own label. He was the creative director at Dior for no less than 29 years and he clearly left his mark. Bohan even stayed longer at this position than Mr Dior himself.
Interested in knowing more about the entire history? We strongly recommend you to visit the ongoing exposition in Paris. Until the 7th of January 2018 at Le Musée des Arts Décoratifs, right next to the Louvre.
