A classic in the making.

It’s been six decades since the initial release and success of Dior’s New Look collection in Paris that revolutionize the fashion industry. To commemorate that wildly successful period, Dior brings us the “New Lock Bag collection.”

The New Look bag is a classic bag, made modern by a few interesting touches like studs on the lock and a more simple and uncomplicated chain and leather handle. For the most part though, Dior has kept the bag simple to pay tribute to the new double press-stud clasp in gold-toned metal engraved with, of course, “Dior”. By using the house’s signature Cannage pattern manage to keep this bag distinctively Dior. Available in a broad range of colours, we think the hand-painted blue python skin version (image above) is simply gorgeous, sadly its not available in Hong Kong.

Dior has pulled out all the stops with the release of this new collection. They’ve enlisted the help of lovely French actress, Nora Arnezeder, who appears in the ad campaign and a series of short film showing her all over Paris and in various situations, with the lock bag in tow. The short films have also been created by Peter Lindbergh and Darius Khondji to showcase the new collection and can be viewed on Dior’s website.
