Dior's hidden symbols
To understand the hidden symbols in Dior handbags is to have a deeper appreciation of the fashion house. Creative directors that succeeded him from Yves Saint Laurent to Maria Grazia Chiuri, have been paying tribute to the highly superstitious founder with their designs. Here are a few of them: The star. Christian Dior crossed paths with a star laying on the ground at the time he was about to decide to launch his brand. The French man interpreted this as a spiritual sign that inspired him to follow his path and the rest is fashion history. Kept also as a lucky charm in his atelier, in today’s Lady Dior bag, the strap comes with removable charms and one of them is a star. The Lady Dior is decorated with cannage pattern, adopting one of the houses’ integral graphic codes. The cannege was inspired by the Napoleon III chairs once used by CD to welcome his customers into his atelier on the date of his first show in 1947. The oval today decorates both boutiques and perfume bottles, and it’s present in the Lady Dior bag as a charm with the letter O. He was fond of the number 8, and not only did he open the doors of his couture house on the eighth of the month which was located on the heart of the eighth arrondisement, but also one can appreciate it as the link for the charms in the Lady Dior bag. The Diorama bag’s leather has the same cannage in smaller and larger size, depending on the style of the bag.
