The iconic Christian Dior Saddle Bag was first introduced in October 1999 under the creative direction of controversial designer John Galliano, and later featured in Dior’s Lauryn Hill-inspired Spring/Summer 2000 collection. The bag itself was designed to resemble a jockey’s seat, hence the name “Saddle Bag”. Worn by both celebrities and trendsetters of the late 90s, the bag became an instant classic- gaining a cult-like following and making multiple appearances on the hit show Sex and the City.  

Often referred to as the ultimate “it bag” of the early 2000s, the discontinued style was revived as part of the house’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection. This revival followed the overwhelming resurgence of 90s fashion trends in recent years. The Saddle Bag’s iconic shape and unique place in pop culture history make it a timeless classic that is continuously reimagined to this day. We are always adding new versions of this bag to our Christian Dior curation, so check back often to score yours.
