The Ultimate Bag Guide: The Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag

Raf Simons’ tenure at Christian Dior has helped push the brand back into the fashion limelight, and Dior’s handbags have benefited from that quite a bit. The line has expanded a lot recently, but the Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag, one of the brand’s most classic styles still has a lot to offer for handbag customers.

The bag comes in several sizes and an every-changing rainbow of colors and embellishments. Most casual shoppers will recognize the distinctive quilting on many of the plain leather bags; it’s called Cannage, and it was inspired by the cane chairs in the Dior atelier. The bag goes far beyond the iconic pattern, though, and we’ve done some research to simplify your shopping experience.

Check out our guide to the bag below; because these bags aren’t sold online, information can be scarce or inaccurate. If you see something that was can expand, update or make more accurate, please let us know in the comments.

The Ultimate Bag Guide: The Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

Because accurate, complete, up-to-date information about some of the world’s most popular handbags can be hard to come by in a single place, especially when a brand is cagey about selling its bags online, we’re launching a new feature: The Ultimate Bag Guides. The guides will include things like pricing, size comparisons and currently available colors and leathers, and the first bag we have our sights on is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote.

Although it was only first introduced in 2007, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote, in all of its endless iterations, has become one of Vuitton’s all-time most successful bags. The Neverfull comes in everything from tried-and-true Monogram Canvas to bright, durable Epi Leather, and because hunting for that perfect bag can be a little bit confusing in a fashion world that emphasizes exclusivity, we’ve done what we can to demystify one of the fashion world’s post popular pieces. Below, check out an overview of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote’s pricing and dimensions, in addition to size and color options that are currently available, including a side-by-side size comparison of the Neverfull PM, MM and GM. Consider this your one-stop guide to ensure that you get the perfect bag for you.

Louis Vuitton does periodic price increases and regularly adds new options to its Neverfull lineup, and with that in mind, we’ll update this guide each time a new bag becomes available, an old bag gets discontinued or prices change. Because the Neverfull is also often used as a canvas for limited editions and artist collaborations, we’ll also add those to this page as they are announced.
