Launched in 2017 under the creative direction of Maria Grazia-Chiuri, Dior presented their newest It-bag line; the Dioraddict. Hence the name, these bags sure to get you addicted to all things Dior - and with good reason.
The Dioraddict line consists of flap bags, top handles bags and mini cross body bags, available numerous different colours and styles. Carefully crafted in Cannage lambskin, the Dioraddict flap bag is a reinvention of Dior's now discontinued Miss Dior bag. The original Dioraddict features a single flap, chain link strap, padlock closure and long, thin "Dior" logo in bold lettering, the Dioraddict flap bag took the world by storm. Top handle Dioraddict bags are crafted from smooth or grained calfskin. Their structured silhouette features a single top handle with an additional shoulder strap, as well as a padlock clasp and same, bold "Dior" lettering. The Dioraddict cross body bags, called the "Lockbox," are mini trunk-like accessories with a long, thick strap and padlock clasp with bold "Dior" logo lettering places at the top of the bag.
Due to the almost instant popularity, especially the flap bag, pieces from the Dioraddict line are now offered in several different patterns, some featuring studded and sequinned embellishment, and logo straps.
One of the newer bags that received almost instant attention and adoration is the Dioraddict Square Flap Bag - an extended version of the Dioraddict Lockbox. A more practical piece, featuring gold tone hardware and studs, the Square Flap is urban, contemporary and chic.
Featuring the signature padlock clasp and "Dior" lettering, this little messenger bag almost has a vintage feel to it. With its boxy, square silhouette and long shoulder strap, this piece is the perfect accessory to compliment any casual outfit. One of the most interesting features on this piece is the mini illusion it gives off. At first glance, the Square Flap looks like a tiny bag without much room inside - wrong. Upon opening the clasp, three compartments are revealed. The front and back pockets are smaller compared to the middle one, but there is more than enough room inside to hold one's day-to-day essentials. A zip pocket is also featured inside, perfect for carrying important items extra safe.
With it's youthful aesthetic, the Dioraddict Square Flap is designed for the modern young woman with a fashion forward sense of style and a love for luxury. We like to imagine a young fashionista with her own unique sense of style carrying the Square Flap across her body as she wanders the streets of a busy city. Her style is edgy with hints of femininity depicted throughout her look and she has a love for vintage and originality. The Dior woman is no longer exclusive to mature women with classic feminine styles - now, she is any woman she wants to be. Classy and unique, she redefines the typical notion of what it means to be feminine - and she is nothing short of her true self.
