Thanks To Dior, Our Fall Accessory Shopping Cart Is Already Full

Amid the flurry of crotchet and patchwork, Dior served a formidable line-up of accessories that saw the triumphant return of Galliano's iconic Saddle bag. Stop the presses!

Almost two years in, it is clear that Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior will be one tied to messages that matter. Feminism has been at the core of her collections since her first, but this season sees the Italian shifting her lens to the student riots of Paris in 1968 and the year itself. The swinging sixties. The decade of what the great Diana Vreeland – a quote from Vreeland opens Dior’s show notes, that’s a fun fact for you – termed the “youthquake”.

But, do not look for mod dresses and go-go boots here. Instead, Chiuri placed checks, leather, patchwork and crotchet at the centre of her collection, whether in the form of matching skirt suits, light-as-air sheer knits or baggy trousers. It was bohemian, it was rebellious. Even the pretty see-through dresses in ruffles and embroidery carried the spirit of rebellion, worn over knitted bralets and knickers that bore the words “Christian Dior”.

Under the helm of Chiuri, Dior has bloomed into a colossal accessory machine. The fresh batch of bags, shoes, sunglasses and jewellery that came alongside the patchwork and crotchet looks only serve to take things even further. The new stuff works, the bringing back of the old house codes and signatures work and when you combine the two, wham, bam, thank you, ma’am – a sure-win formula for pieces that will have no problems flying off the shelves. Aside from the monogram bags branded with a vintagesque “CD” and the return of Galliano’s Saddle bag, Dior adds another hero item to its repertoire: a chunky leather belt with a gold “D” for a buckle. Good luck getting your hands on one when fall arrives. Actually, good luck to my wallet, really.

Update: The Fall/Winter 2018 collection will be launching soon in Singapore stores. We’re predicting that it’s going to sell out pretty quickly, so if you want first dibs, it’s possible to give the store a ring for a reservation.
