There have been a LOT of bags on the runways this past fashion month, with designers betting big that we still have a lot to lug around with us. And how right they are. So it's nice to see what Maria Grazia Chiuri, defender of flexibility with style has to offer after her interpration of Lady Dior, the Saddlebag and her introduced and widely loved book tote. Her Dior now presents the next bag soon to be on everyone’s shoulders (and surely Tik Tok feeds or trends): The New “Essentials Bag”. Dior reinterprets the tote bag in a shiny squared version and as the name suggests, it is just that – essential, the new bag to rely on for every occasion.

Structured lines across the quilted soft leather, looped into gold rings make this bag an allrounder. Functional enough for a day out and about, but elegant to take it on a night out. The memory foam, giving the surface volume and plushness, picks up from the AW22/23 collection's jackets and coats, giving every look a rounded but taut silhouette.

Whether you decide on the all-fitting large, the right-in-the-middle medium, or you go for the night-out small, this bag is essential for your essentials... (see what we did there?)
