The $35,000 Dior Saddle Bag Just for Guys

Dior has always been a brand that makes waves in the fashion world due to its creative designs and innovative accessories. That is certainly the case with a recent product they have launched that is a bag previously intended for women that are now solely for men. During the 1990s, Dior introduced a saddle bag for women that was inspired by the equestrian lifestyle. They have now redesigned their original concept to create a metallic saddle bag for men. You will need a fair wad of cash to become the proud owner of one of these accessories though because the bag is marketed with a staggering price tag of $35,000.

The stylish bag has a classic saddle bag design, but with a modern twist. The exterior is fully metallic, and it features a hinged overlap. Although it is not the most practical bag the brand has ever designed, it certainly looks cool. However, it takes a certain kind of guy to pull off such an extreme looking accessory. Fashion lovers first had the opportunity to see this metallic bag, which is part of a futuristic collection on the catwalk’s in Japan last year. The brand was launching their pre-fall collection designed by British designer Kim Jones in his first season with the brand after moving from Louis Vuitton menswear. When he moved to Dior, he was replaced at Luis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh. At both Louis Vuitton and now Dior, Jones has created a conversation about the brands and millennials are fans of the new ideas he has introduced.

The bag was strutted down the catwalk by a model under a futuristic robotic figurine that was designed by Hajime Sorayama, who is a talented Japanese artist. Sorayama also collaborated on the design of the bag, and this is one of the reasons for the hefty price tag. In fact, the work of Sorayama was one of the main inspirations for the whole collection. The theme throughout reflected Sorayama’s futuristic style with android-like aesthetics, slick designs, and a silvery palette. There are many men who will love the flamboyant metallic look and will be adding their name to the list to receive one of these pricey accessories. However, it is not to everyone’s tastes and nor is it within everyone’s budget.

If you want a saddle bag but cannot afford $35,000, then there are several more options from Dior with a lower price tag and a simpler style. For $1,900, you could become the proud owner of a messenger bag that is available in either black or brown. Dior created this man’s bag in collaboration with KAWS, a street artist. Unfortunately, you will have to wait to get one of these as they sold out almost as soon as they were released. For those who want to pay a more affordable price for their bag, there are many other saddle bags on the market. Unfortunately, these are not made by Dior or any other high-end brand. You will only find cheap replicas on the high-street. Therefore, if you want to wear Dior for the brand name and its innovative designs, you can expect to pay a high price.

It is not only the metallic saddle bag that has had people raising their eyebrows at Jones’ work. He recently presented one of his collections using an alternative method to models strutting their stuff down the catwalk. Instead, the models were stationery and were propelled down the catwalk on a conveyor belt. Watching this fashion show were many celebrities, including Robert Pattinson, Naomi Campbell, Pusha T, and Kate Moss. This means that Jones’ collection could influence the fashion decisions of many people in the limelight.

Now that Oscar season is approaching, celebrities have big decisions to make about what to wear for the big event as their aim is usually to dress to impress and to stand out from the other celebrities attending. With Jones now making waves both in the fashion industry and in celebrity circles, there is barely any doubt that celebrities will be queuing up to wear his designs at the most exclusive events. Therefore, Jones will become a huge asset to Dior and fashion fans can expect to see new and exciting designs from this talented designer for some time to come.
