A tribute to Christian Dior’s sister, Catherine – known affectionately as “Caro,”– the Dior Caro bag is clad in the iconic caning motif. An original expression of Dior codes, this object of desire is made in the House’s workshops in Italy, with virtuoso craftsmanship combining the beauty of the gesture with exceptional materials.
An original expression of Dior codes, the Dior Caro bag is made in the House’s ateliers in Italy, with virtuoso craftsmanship that combines the beauty of the gesture with exceptional materials. After its pieces are meticulously cut from calf leather, the essential quilting stage alone requires 18,000 stitches to reproduce the subtle geometric weave of cannage. A delicate “Christian Dior” gold seal is affixed before the bag, which is mounted inside-out, is at last turned right-side out. Next, metal accessories adorned with the precious “CD” signature are affixed, from the chain links to the clasp.
Available in two sizes, in timeless shades such as black, gray, beige and ivory, this essential bag also comes in enchanting hues, borrowing intensity from red and softness from sky blue, mint green and compass rose. The small version is also available in three exclusive variations enhanced with shearling and raw denim, or punctuated with the hypnotic Tie & Dior as seen in the 2021 cruise show.
These objects of desire lend themselves to a game of mix-and-match thanks to interchangeable shoulder straps for a daring look. A new emblem of Dior style.
