How boring. All he showed were Gaucho bags. I know we had an earlier post where we liked this bag, but after further consideration, I think this bag is stupid. It flips open in half, the top half only has what you see on the front and the bottom is just a zipper compartment, with some pockets in between the two flaps. I mean, for such a big bag, it really is a waste of leather and arm strength. And the small ones are completely useless. I suppose it’s sort of cute but NOT cute enough to make an entire collection of it. OK, so it’s also done in python, and you would think that would get us going, but slapping snake skin on a stupid bag just makes a stupid snake skin bag. As for the rest of the collection, it’s a little narcissistic don’t you think? Having all Axel Rose look-a-like Galliano look-a-likes? And even if you like that idea, wouldn’t it make more sense to make copies of himself for John Galliano instead of Dior?

Ostrich Feather Detective

Going to an outlandishly chic New Year’s party? Well, don’t show up without this outlandishly fabulous Dior Detective clutch in satin, ostrich feathers and mink. It’s chic and looks like a cute dog so you Paris wannabes can leave your real critters at home. For the Bag Snob loyalists, we diss, as in dis-like, the Dior Detective Leather bag iconbut the feathers and mink on this one covers up the icky sillouette and all you see is poof and furry goodness.

Celine’s Asymmetric Bag

Here is an interesting concept. I can’t say that this Celine bag is the greatest looking, but I like the idea that it is asymmetric so that it tucks neatly under your arm and stays out of the way. Now this is an idea worthy of further investigation, you know, like design a good looking bag using this concept. I suppose the Dior Saddle bag is similar, but I said make a good looking bag. Or at least a good practical bag and not some gimmicky rodeo clown bag. Celine Asymmetic Bag $1550 at Net-a-Porter.

Dior Rebelle

We have not been kind to Dior of late but we have to admit that we’re secretly eyeing the Rebelle series of bags. They’re funky and fun and for the girls who like to kick it low profile at King’s Road Cafe instead of paparazzi hyped Ivy (by the way, I remember when The Ivy was a place I’d go to with friends and family for nice quiet lunches. We’d see celebs but it was not the zoo it is now full of attention craved starlets who secretly alert the paparazzi themselves when they’ll be there. I miss LA the way it was when I was younger. Everytime I go home I am annoyed!). I really like the suede and leather combination, it gives the bag more texture. Actually, everything about this bag is cute, the side pockets are almost standard nowadays as we have so many gadgets to carry around but what I really like is the hook enclosure that secures the flap down so our valuables are safe even while we roam the busy streets of Milan or New York. We love the winter white but for more practical bag snobs, the dark brown is just as fab and will be easier to maintain. $1495 – $1595 at eLuxury.

The Man Bag from Dior Homme is chic enough for the girls and you probably won’t have much luck convincing your man that metallic silver is ‘the’ hottest trend of the season so you might as well buy it for yourself to use as a diaper bag or hip messenger bag. Seriously though, it’s the cutest man bag we’ve seen yet. Hedi Slimane, designer of Dior Homme, understands that just cuz you’re a man it doesn’t mean you have to act butch and look like the Tool Time guy, you can dress well, carry nice bags, and still look like a man. Too bad Galliano doesn’t get the same sentiment for Dior women’s line. I think his idea is to make women look as stupid and ugly as possible so he can outshine us all.

Dior Spring ‘07

Dior’s spring collection is full of pretty dresses and simply cut suits, we’re so glad Galliano is back to doing what he does well, wrapping a piece of fabric around a woman’s body to make it seem as if it’s an extension of her curves. But it is the House of Dior afterall and intricate gold embroidery details are still there, just in subtle touches and not so much that a normal person would feel ridiculous wearing it. Galliano is giving his clients what all women want for Spring, clothes that flatter and enhance (which is more than we can say for the mushroom hairdos the models were sporting). As for the double chained bags in lux crocodile and lush suede, can we just say FABULOUS!!!!

Dior Cannage

Dior finally came out with a bag we like. This quilted cannage of buttery soft lamb skin is a great basic that will go a long way. The bag can be a hobo (as shown in picture) or a tote, by unhooking the straps and pulling them out between the centering rings (while not in use, the hook sits out of the way nicely). It’s quite ingenious and is much cuter than the Cannage shopper (which is a totally different style altogether and is not at all cute). There are lots of zip and side pockets on the inside making this a good option for hip mommies. Versatile, practical and stylish. What more can we say to help this bag out? Not that it needs any help, it’s already selling out everywhere. It comes in 3 sizes and 5 colors; black, cream, red, dark brown and aged light brown (which is distressed, leathery and gross and ruins the classic appeal). At eLuxury for $1370.

I’m off to Vail for 3 weeks over Christmas and the thought of snow is making me crave more winter white bags! Yes, we are obsessed with white if you haven’t noticed and we’ve covered all the bases with these selections. A white travel bag, a great manbag, fabulous clutches, and a statement exotic make for the perfect winter white bag wardrobe.

Dior Homme - I love that Hedi Slimane is designing chic manbags, why should women get to have all the fun?

And the price is very reasonable for crocodile, $3,300 at Bergdorf Goodman.
