For the Dior autumn-winter 2022-2023 ready-to-wear collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri revisits the House’s unique heritage with modernity, through the Lady 95.22 bag. An ode to the connection between past and present, this irresistible model reinvents the emblematic lines of the Lady Dior; its name echoes the year 1995, the date of the icon’s creation, and 2022, the year of this exclusive new revival. Enhanced by the cannage pattern, reinvented in two new versions, its silhouette, both timeless and ultra-contemporary, bears witness to the constantly renewed virtuosity of the Dior ateliers.
Combining craftsmanship and cutting-edge innovation, this essential is adorned with a macrocannage motif, created for the occasion with a high-frequency technique. Meticulously selected, the leather is first cut by hand, before being worked upon using wave energy. The combination of heat and pressure allows the artisans to give the material the perfect volume, further underlining the architectural shape of this captivating model.
Embellished by the macrocannage along with the maxicannage that adorns the bottom of the bag, the Lady 95.22 is completed by handles and a leather shoulder strap that multiply the number of ways it can be worn, as well as the signature charms, reinterpreted in a refined design, weaving links between the House’s past and the future, and adding to this object of desire an extra touch of exquisite distinction.
