Named one of the world’s most influential couturiers, Christian Dior launched his first collection, known as the “New Look,” in 1947. Dior’s designs were revolutionary, and provided women with an ultra-feminine, post-war style, featuring full skirts, cinched waists, and round shoulders. No longer were women confined to structural, military esque designs that dominated the WWII era. Though Dior had an untimely death in 1957, the Dior house continues to derive inspiration from Christian Dior’s original ladylike designs. At Portero, one will find a variety of Dior handbags, including the coveted Lady Dior bag.
This French fashion maison has held its place in international couture for the better part of a century. First led by Christian Dior himself, followed by Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano and most recently Raf Simons, their luxury looks have never lacked creative artistry. And the handbags are no exception. From the favored Lady Dior line, to Miss Dior, Diorissimo, Be Dior and more, each bag is crafted by hand and undoubtedly timeless.
