Anatomy of a Bag #WearableWednesday

Fashion teardown of The Lady Dior handbag:

Two Dior artisans—one for skin selection and cutting and another to complete assemblage—create the Lady Dior, which starts out with sumptuous lambskin from French tanneries. The leather is then given what’s called the Cannage effect, which produces an eight-sided shape—eight also being Mr. Dior’s lucky number. The pattern itself was inspired by the canework of the Napoleon III chairs used in Christian Dior’s first fashion show in 1947. Of course, the finishing touch is the brand’s signature hardware.
