First introduced by John Galliano back in 1999, the Dior Saddle bag has been a must-have accessory ever since, sported by Carrie Bradshaw, fashion editors and street style stars. As one of the most popular items on resale sites such as Vestiaire collective, Dior's successive artistic directors have given their own spin on this piece of luxury arm candy. With the design now straddling both the women's and men's collections, Kim Jones gave his first take on the bag for his debut S/S 19 men's collection. Complete with Matthew Williams's covetable hardware buckle designs, Jones's Dior Saddle has proven to be a must-have component to the Dior Man's wardrobe.
Reintroduced for S/S 21, the latest edition of the bag sees Jones do what he does best; luxurious and functional design. Photographed by Rafael Pavarotti, who lensed the official S/S 21 campaign, the image-maker's unmistakable vibrant and striking aesthetic sets the khaki colour-way of the new bag against a vibrant mustard backdrop. The Maxi Saddle is a size up from the original design, and features a cross-body strap which can be extended over the shoulder. Available in black or khaki grained letter, or in the covetable oblique canvas in classic or black, the bag features a removable smartphone case. There's really nothing Jones hasn't thought of.
