Dior Lady Art Project

For the second edition of its Dior Lady Art Project, fashion house Dior found ten artists to work individually on customizations to the iconic Lady Dior handbag. One artist, Jamilla Okubo, was approached via email to design her version. Naturally, she thought it was a scam.

“I just never thought that, out of all brands, Christian Dior would reach out to me to do an artist collaboration. I think it’s amazing. I went to school and learned about this brand and watched their runway shows for inspiration, so this is like a big deal,”

Okubo, born in North Carolina and raised in Washington, D.C., incorporates African textile patterns into her designs, marrying fine art with fashion. She is one of ten designers to have been chosen. The artists chosen are Jamilla Okubo, Betty Mariani, Lee Bul, John Giorno, Jack Pierson, Hong Hao, Friedrich Kunath, Nansa Leuba, Spencer Sweeney and David Wiseman. The designers come from diverse backgrounds, including South Korea, China and France.

Designers are tasked with customizing the best-selling handbag to their hearts’ content, playing with the signature cannage quilting pattern and letter charms. Materials used include mink, velvet, sequins and multicolored thread.

Jack Pierson based his designs on drawings he did during his stay in the French capital: “They came out of me spending a month riding a bike around Paris and just soaking it all up and seeing everything from shop windows to museums…It’s all just graphic and line and motion and things like that, but I feel like I just let a Parisian sensibility seep into it somehow.”

Pierson will reproduce his version of the smaller Lady bag, choosing to use black satin, gold and silver threading, sequins and pearls, adding his trademark studded metallic charms.

“I think that boundary between fashion and art is getting less and less defined lately,” Pierson added. “Part of my enthusiasm toward it is, I feel like all of the Parisian artists of the early part of the century collaborated: Man Ray and Picasso and Salvador Dalí.”

While Wiseman opted for gray lambskin stitched with various cannage and floral patterns, Giorno chose rainbow metallized calfskin etched with lines from his own poetry, one reading, “We Gave a Party for the Gods, and the Gods All Came.” Okubo blended African textiles with couture beading techniques, one from orange lambskin embroidered with flowers and with blue satin handles.The collection of bags will be launched on November 30th along with a cocktail at the Dior boutique on 57th Street in New York City. Other events will include an appearance with Lee on Dec. 8th at the House of Dior flagship in Seoul, and an appearance with Hong on December 9 at the Dior store in the China World Mall in Beijing.

Diorama Bag

Diorama-Handbag

Dior is a French luxury goods company with a rich history, and is known to always stun people with innovative designs. It is believed that Parisian fashion is spread and kept alive across the world only because of Dior. With designs that have been popular through decades, Dior was the first designer to license designs with his own name in 1949. Christian Dior is still among the best-known names in the fashion industry. Dior’s collection of women’s bags has enchanted many women including celebrities over the years and are stunning pieces to invest in.

The latest addition to Dior’s shining line up of women’s accessories, the Diorama Bag was introduced in the Spring/Summer Collection of 2015. Crafted in stunning colorful leather options, this flap bag has caught the fashion world’s eye. It is an easy to wear design which is popular among the young and trend conscious millennials who prefer Dior bags with a modern twist, and less of a ladylike style. While being a recent addition to Dior’s star studded line up, this bag has grabbed the fashion world’s attention and has reached the same level as the classic. It is set to become more popular from here on and become a great investment with prices going up every year, and is priced around 1500$. Shop from a range of options here. Et voilà! This sums up our list of Dior bag prices. So, which Dior are you buying next? Define your preferred style and buy one of these jewels on The Luxury Closet. Already own it?

Simple and Well-designed Handbag

Founded in Los Angeles by designer Sarah Staudinger, these sleek, minimalistic bags are not lacking in the cool department, likely on account of the fact that Staudinger cut her teeth as the head of design at the California-cool brand Reformation. Their smooth, elegant bucket bag is especially covetable, and even better? The price is right – a mere $350 in a sea of spring handbags that start in the quadruple digits!Moynat is to the luxury set what Staud is to the more affordable, mid-priced handbag world; a fresh face on the scene. While Moynat is by no means a new or emerging brand (having been around since 1849), they do not have the instant brand recognition as say, your Hermes Birkin or a classic Chanel Flap Bag. Sleek and elegant in design, many Moynat bags are exactly the kind of thing those interested in quiet, no-holds-barred luxuryis looking for. That is, if they can stomach the money is no object price tag. Their stunningly austere Ballerine top handle bag starts at $4,500!

There has been a lot of buzz over the past few months about the fact that there seems to be a resurgence in the popularity of “it bags.” It seems these logo-festooned, hardware-heavy concoctions that were so popular in the late 90s to mid 2000s appear to be making a bit of a comeback on the Spring runways and Cruise collections. However, we know that for many people, a flashy bag is just not their thing, so for those of you who prefer their bags to whisper instead of shout, we’ve provided this short peek at two designers who are very successfully designing the antidote to the “it bag” in the form of bags that are simple, well-designed, and made of luxurious materials.

REPLICA CHLOÉ’S RUNWAY BAG

Image result for Chloé’s Only Fall 2016 Runway Bag inside

There are a few standard approaches to runway bags that we usually see brands take. First (and least helpfully), there are brands that don’t include bags in their shows, even though they make them. They’re no fun. On the other end of the continuum, you have brands that arm every single model with a bag, and sometimes more than one–they’re our favorites, for obvious reasons. Most brands, including Chloé, find one of a couple available spots in the middle.
For Fall 2016, Chloé chose to showcase only one bag on its runway, and it’s a totally new design that nonetheless feels extremely Chloé.The brand has churned out a stream of very well-received saddle bags over the past few seasons, but they’ve all been pretty structured and a bit petite; for fall, the brand chose to go a larger, slightly slouchier route but stick with the saddle bag format that has worked so well with its French-boho aesthetic.
I like the bag, and I suspect that it will be a crowd-pleaser for functional reasons when it hits stores, but I don’t quite love it. The Drew, Faye and Hudson have all captured my attention because they’re so sharp and have impeccable details, while this bag is just…a nice bag. But hey, sometimes a nice bag is all you want. Let us know if it tickles your fancy in the comments.

Hermes’ Stories

In the entire handbag market, Hermes reigns above all brands and that is because their handbags are truly the best. There are high-quality Hermes replica handbags on the market and these reviews here are meant to help you find the best knock off Hermes bag. Hermes replica handbags come in a variety of colors, variety, leather and hardware options and that’s why Hermes is the handbag holy grail.
Hermes is still one of the IT brands continuously making more of the IT bags. Anything that Hermes produces is always well received and fashion people go crazy and more to get some of the lizard, ostrich or alligator leather Hermes totes in all shades and sizes. Victoria Beckham is know to have picked up quite a collection of the gorgeous Hermes bags, some Birkin bags in various shades, and Kelly bags too. Just name it.
Hermes already had its presence in the States, when Kelly bag was manufactured (originally it was actually called Sac à dépêches) . Hermes had its ups and downs until it came under leadership of Jean-Louis Dumas-Hermes, who helped the brand to become one of the most distinguishable luxury goods companies. After 30 years of working for the brand, he now handed the very successful company to Patric Thomas, who is now CEO of the label. Right now Hermes has 14 product lines that include famous leather accessories and leather hand bags (such as Kelly bag or Birkin bag), men’s and women apparel, watches, jewelry, shoes, perfumes, even table ware items and other products.
Bold color combinations of Hermes bags replica and high heel shoes provide plenty of flexibility in your wardrobe. Classic color combinations look stylish on everyone, no matter the season. Neutral colors, like black, navy, white, brown, grey and khaki, put together create timeless and flattering looks but bold color combinations.

The thing I love most about it is actually its simplicity. And I believe that somehow people have come to the conclusion that a handbag doesn’t necessarily need to have a complicated design in order to catch the eye. Fine lines, high quality materials and a small touch of sophistication are enough for a handbag to transform your look into a work of art!
Hermes bags are extremely expensive and hard to get and you could think it’s close to impossible to find good replicas. But that’s not true; you can find high-end faux Hermes bags that are obviously made with a lot of care and devotement to copying the original as good as possible.

Realistic Options for Regular Women of Buying a handbag

Image result for Hermes bag

what does all this mean for ‘regular’ women who aren’t Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham, but wish to own one of the most sought after bags in the history of fashion? Essentially, purchasing a bag directly from Hermes is out of the question unless you are a celebrity or one of the luckiest people on the planet.

For regular women who wish to invest in a Hermes bag the only realistic option is to use a trusted reselling service who don’t discriminate based on income or purchase history. At Baghunter, we provide an essential service to women worldwide, providing an opportunity to own a handbag that would otherwise be completely inaccessible to them.

However, there is a word of warning that accompanies purchasing a Hermes bag from a secondary source. The counterfeit market for these bags is thriving and auction sites are rife with fake Birkins and Kellys. There are even a high number of consignment websites which claim to resell authentic Birkins, but actually send extremely convincing fake bags. It is therefore essential to use a trusted consignment service when making the decision to purchase a Hermes bag online.

To help you make the right decision and decrease your chances of becoming a victim of the increasingly convincing counterfeit market, we highly recommend you familiarize yourself with the small details on Hermes bags which can help you spot a fake. Read our Authentication Guide to see how the experts authenticate Hermes bags and ensure you only deal with trusted businesses before making a purchase.

Dior is known for its ambitious exhibitions.The brand presents the rich heritage and history of its dresses, perfumes, accessories and pictures in various parts of the world.Another exhibition is the New Look Revolution, which featured the evolution of the Bar Suit.

Dior manages multiple social media accounts that appeal to a specific demographic.At Dior Homme, the brand only creates posts that cater to its male demographic. Posts that will not appeal to its male demographic, are not featured on its page.While it takes more time and effort to manage two accounts, the brand certainly has no regrets.

“Having separate social media accounts, although the time allotted to maintain is greater, can be very beneficial to a brand as they can target messaging to that specific group of followers that may end up lost in a single ‘all things to all followers’ social media experience,” said Marci Troutman, CEO of SiteMinis in an interview.

Dior has not only conquered the hearts of Western fashionistas, but also China’s online shoppers.The brand entered China and sold its Lady Dior bags on WeChat during the Qixi Festival Holiday. What was originally a four-day online marketing campaign became a one-day event, after the bags were immediately sold out

Impeccable Christian Dior handbags

So, I understand that this is an extreme example (but one which features an impeccable Christian Dior bag but I have to really admire her guts and commitment to the fashion community. Though I wouldn’t wear any of this myself (besides that Prada handbag, of course) I really shouldn’t worry about what other people with think too much. I guess I should make this my new philosophy in life, don’t you agree?

As you know, I spend a lot of time looking at photos of celebrities and their various replica handbags, which means I spend a lot of time looking at and reading other blogs. I guess it’s the same as other websites, but I think the comment section is where it’s at! The topic that I am going to be talking about today is clutches, and you can see an example, above, of Lupita Nyongo’s Prada bag, the Prada Raso clutch, which is going to help illustrate my point.

First, check her out above sporting a blast from the past, the Prada striped tote. I think these came out when I first started writing this blog (wow it seems like it was just yesterday) and I am still a huge fan of this Prada bag. Check her out below with one of her impeccable Christian Dior handbags, the Mulberry Leopard Bayswater bag. This bag is to DIE for. I want to reach into the photo and grab this Mulberry bag for myself, but alas, I can’t!

Dior’s Pre-Fall 2018 Bags

My favorite of the two we got our little paws on is The Dior Lady Dior Bag. I’ve always thought of the Lady Dior as delicate and, of course, living up to its name: ladylike. While I get the appeal of a super feminine bag, they aren’t the kind of bags that I typically steer toward. This version of the Lady Dior changed all that for me, and I have to admit that the Lady Dior just went way, way up on my want list.

this bag is relatively functional, as it can be hand carried or worn using the removable shoulder strap, which I just love. This bag is the medium size, so it’s just right and fits pretty much everything you would need for the day, plus some extras. I was able to fit in my wallet, sunglasses, a small cosmetics case, both my work phone and my personal phone, and even my digital camera when the bag was organized just right.

I love that this bag has an interior flap closure, so it’s not totally open on top, meaning your stuff isn’t overly exposed. However, the flap is very easy to open and get in and out of on the move. Inside, the Lady Dior bag has one interior zip pocket, as well as a slit pocket. Overall dimensions of The Dior Medium Lady Dior Bag are 8″H x 9″ W x 4″D,
