The Dior Lady bag came to the spotlight in 1995 when the First Lady of France gifted it to the late Princess Diana, during the opening of the Cezanne exhibition of Paris, much to the world’s delight. Fans are drawn to the bag’s iconic quilted motif, with gold-key charms hanging from its arched handles, as a tribute to Christian Dior’s passion for lucky charms. Today, the Dior Lady bag returns with a third exhibition dedicated to its craftmanship, with Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri, inviting 11 female artists around the world to reinvent the bag. The results? Exceptional works of art by artists from Colombia, Turkey, South Korea, China, United States, France and Japan as they push the envelope and incorporated local nuances and elements from their culture.
