Most of us Bagista’s are quite familiar with Christian Dior’s spacious shopper totes and throughout the seasons, we’ve seen the modification of the different textures and colors on these handy totes.
For S/S ’10, Dior presents a quilted coated canvas in the stunning shade of fuchsia. I could settle with quilted coated canvas, but when it comes to this Dior style, rich leather would have been my pick.
Regardless, this tote looks great and its cannage design is presented lovely. From a distance, I assumed the chunky, oversized hardware consisted of gunmetal; instead, it’s something a bit more exotic that gives this tote that eye-catching summery vibe.
Wooden links and the oversized “O” charm compliments this tote bag wonderfully and gives this sunny day pick a very unique appearance.
In regards to the few wooden accented handbags I’ve ran into, nothing had really caught my attention, but this Dior tote is definitely an exception. At the moment, the Panerea tote with wooden accents is available only in the rich fuchsia with purple undertones through SAKS.
You can pre-order this cheery tote for $1,300 at: Saks Fifth Avenue
