Dior's denim saddle bag for autumn-winter 2019, embroidered by the design house’s Dior Oblique canvas created by Marc Bohan in 1967.
The new bag can also be personalised with initials in classic Dior fashion

Dior’s saddle bag requires no introduction. While the John Galliano-designed bag first made its humble debut to the world in 1999, Maria Grazia Chiru’s reimagined saddle bag made its thunderous return back in Dior’s autumn-winter 2018 show and has since dominated the fashion landscape as rappers, athletes and Hollywood personas alike have rocked the throwback accessory (think everyone from Beyonce to Carrie Bradshaw). And a year later, the cult bag is once again taking another stride – literally. With an equestrian-inspired twist, this year’s Dior autumn-winter 2019 will feature the legendary cult bag once again but this time around, it’ll be flexing some major denim while doing so. Constructed of classic vintage-style denim, it’s one way to pair your denim autumn looks without compromising your Stranger Things throwback ’80s vibes. So for anyone who didn’t find the first iterations of their saddle bags “realistic” enough, this might just do the trick.
