John Galliano’s iconic Saddle Bag has been revived and reinvented by Marie Grazia Chiuri for 2018, bringing the cult bag back to life after 18 years. First seen in Dior’s SS2000 collection, the ‘It’ bag of the season is still inspired by the brand’s equestrian roots, evident by the gilded D, but has been firmly updated for the now. “I thought this collection would be an opportunity to revive its timeless beauty,” says Grazia Chiuri after the FW18 show when it was launched. I consider this icon of the house’s recent history the perfect accessory to deal with this battle that is daily life.” The creative director has revisited the bag in leather, monogram canvas and embroidered patchwork versions, all her signature ethnic straps to be worn cross-body.
