There are those attention-grabbing designer bags that make a statement but admittedly won't stand the test of time, and then there are those picture-perfect styles that you just know you'll pick up again season after season. The brand-new Dior 30 Montaigne bag is decidedly the latter. It's the newest bag silhouette to join the brand's ever-stylish offerings, and if you've been searching for an accessory that's worth investing in, look no further.
On May 10, Dior unveiled its latest handbag design to the world. And no surprise here, it's about to become the bag everyone wants to carry for seasons to come. The newly debuted design is part of the iconic French fashion house's new 30 Montaigne capsule collection, a seasonless (aka totally timeless) selection of must-have investment pieces that'll always be in style.
The capsule, conceived by Dior Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri and named for the very place where it all first began, comprises all the items a sartorially savvy dresser would want in their wardrobe. From the feminine tulle skirts that Chiuri's Dior has become known for to the perfect double breasted bar jacket, the collection is brimming with worthy buys — including the brand-new 30 Montaigne bag.
It's sleek and structured in all the right ways, with a fold over flap that fastens on the front with a gleaming golden "CD" monogram clasp. And while the no-fuss silhouette could surely read classic, the bag gives a nod to contemporary design (and the current direction of the fashion house) with a cool touch on the backside: A large embossing in the smooth calfskin leather that reads 30 Montaigne. In this way, the latest Dior bag manages to walk the incredibly fine line between appreciation for the past and looking forward to the future.
The 30 Montaigne is available in allover calfskin at $3,550 in several colors, from black or off-white to bolder shades like a stormy blue, and in the iconic Dior Oblique print on jacquard canvas for $2,950. Both iterations of the new bag feature an adjustable leather shoulder strap that allows you to wear it on the shoulder or across the body.
As demonstrated by Jennifer Lawrence in the Instagram debut of the new silhouette, it can quite literally be carried with everything. Style the 30 Montaigne on the weekends à la Lawrence with your favorite denim and a chunky knit, but then take it with you to the office and out to a dinner date by pairing it with a prim LBD and the capsule's signature J'Adior pumps.
