Finery: Saddle Up

The iconic saddle bag, which made its debut in Dior’s spring-summer 2000 ready-to-wear collection, was designed by John Galliano (then creative director of Dior).

Alluding to a horse’s saddle decorated with a gilt ‘D’, it become an immediate cult object and was propelled into the limelight internationally by celebrities including Beyoncé, Elle Macpherson, and Sarah Jessica Parker. It is revisited here in different formats with bright and contrasting colours and a new strap which also allows it to be worn across the body.
