Across the various aspects of its creation from design to manufacturing, the Dior Vibe bag uses the House’s emblematic curves with lightness and finesse. Naturally, the “Christian Dior” signature stripe is clear and present – in this case, lined with a layer of leather and foam and created using high-frequency printing.

The pieces are cut out with the help of wooden patterns, and are then individually assembled and sewn together. The rubber base of the bag, meanwhile, sports the Monsieur Dior’s lucky star and is inspired by the soles of sneakers. The base is punctuated with gilded feet that represents the melding of “the casual spirit and the art of detail so dear to the House“.
