LL Armcandy of the Week: Dior Runway bag

At their fall/winter 2016/17 Ready to Wear show, Dior introduced us to what promises to be the next “It” bag for autumn. Dior is calling their Runway bag “the ultimate expression of the electric attitude of the rebellious Parisian woman” and we’re inclined to agree, at least when it comes to the more dramatic finishes. The small rectangular bag is pretty stern looking with its sharp angles and straight lines, but once you see the embroidered and embellished versions of the handbag, it takes on a much more fun and playful quality.


You can chose from six different embellished versions, and other plain versions. We naturally fell in love with the fringed version with floral sequins (Dior website describes it as being “entirely embroidered with flowers made up of sequins and fringes”) thanks to its beautifully detailed exterior, but other embellished bags in the series definitely aren’t far behind. Beads, bows, fringe, embroidery and vivid colors give each bag a luxe avant garde feel.

For the less experimental fashionistas, the lambskin versions are available with Dior’s signature “Cannage” stitching in black and red colors, the same quilted style you would see on the brand’s iconic Lady Dior bags. We also spotted a red ostrich version of the bag, which was particularly eye catching. The bag comes with structured top handles as well as a shoulder strap. Its small size makes it an inconvenient companion for shopping, but a great companion for nights out.

For now, there’s no word on the price, but they are already available for purchase at Dior boutiques.
