Kim Jones Introduces Dior Perforated Cannage Men’s Bags
Dior presents the Perforated Cannage Line, an iconic house code introduced by the founding couturier, now transformed by Kim Jones, artistic director of Dior Menswear, into a Collection of Men’s Bags, epitomizing savoir-faire with a modern twist.
The Cannage pattern is inspired by the elegant Napoléon III-style chairs that were historically used to seat clients attending the haute couture showings in the salons at 30 Avenue Montaigne.
For Summer 2019, the use of the cannage represents a fusion of the couture and the contemporary: lasercutting combines with meticulous handwork to render each piece a perfect example of innovative Dior Savoir-Faire.
The line includes two bags in perforated leather: the perfect weekend bag and the shopper, both available in black and a natural tan color. Inside, printed with the emblematic bee reimagined by the american artist kaws, a canvas pouch has been designed to hold and protect items such as a laptop, books or clothing.
