Reputable by its regal, elegant silhouette that is both timeless and modern, the Dior Toujours bag showcases the high standard of craft that is carried between the House’s manufacturers.

By embodying a sought-after object of desire, the accessory demonstrates the virtuosity of Dior’s leather ateliers, as well as their ability to follow up-to-date design codes whilst remaining true to the heart of the brand.

With a new macrocannage motif and a unique style of cut in the leather, the bag is passed through an incredibly meticulous process in order to represent a deserved level of refinement.

Each subtle touch in place presents the ingenious level of detail that is carried throughout this French Maison, including the ‘CD’ signature which allows the silhouette of this model to be played and altered with throughout its process.
