Find out all the reasons why everyone is loving the Diorever…

The Making of the Diorever

The Diorever was released in the Spring/Summer 2016 collection. From the very beginning, Dior had a clear vision they wanted to accomplish with the Diorever bag. The concept of the Diorever took nearly 9 months to formulate .The Diorever is a classically structured tote bag with modern influences. According to Dior, it is meant to be a tote with “cutting-edge, urban attitude” and very  a “strong and bold” character.

Dior describes the Diorever as “small architectural marvel” that takes a full day to craft. The bag consists of 47 leather components and 32 metallic accessories that must be hand-cut and individually attached by a single craftsman. The Diorever is constructed meticulously and conscientiously so that the bag will maintain its quality for years and years. The Diorever reflects the best leather-working “savoir-faire”, which translates to a type of expertise, refinement, and innate style.

Diorever - Savoir Faire

Why is the Diorever so successful?

Dior has many iconic bags like the Lady Dior bag and Diorama. Each of these bags has unique factors that have propelled it into “it” bag territory. The Diorever is no exception – people are drawn to it because it is different, outstanding, and worthy of recognition.

Let’s name a few simple reasons why the Diorever is so appealing…

Classic and Modern Appeal: The Diorever is a functional tote bag with a sleek, updated look. It easily serves as a work tote or everyday tote, which makes it a very justifiable purchase.

Birkin Inspiration: While some may be critical of the Diorever’s resemblance to the Birkin, the Diorever still has its own distinct look. Even if it does have some similarities to the Birkin, this is not a totally negative thing. The Birkin is a successful bag because of its construction and style. Bags that draw inspiration from the Birkin are just trying to recreate a very smart and wearable bag.

Reversible Flap: The bag’s flap can be clasped over the bag or flipped back for added versatility in look.

Rich, vibrant colors: The Diorever comes in bold metallics like gold and silver, as well as deep, bright colors like Royal Blue, Neon Yellow, and Shocking Pinks.

Multiple Sizes: Sizes include Mini, Medium, and Large to suit all your needs!

Cult Following: The Diorever is gaining a lot of support from fashionistas. This type of exposure and appreciation will only make the Diorever more popular.

The Rise of an "It" Bag

Even if a bag is a masterpiece in the sense of its looks and features, it can’t truly gain the attention it deserves until more people are carrying it. Luckily for Dior, the Diorever was endorsed by many famous celebs like Rihanna and Chiara Ferragni from the beginning. It’s not just celebrities either. Many different people from all over the world are showing their love for the Diorever! It is an incredible feat that the Diorever has managed to appeal to such a diverse audience.

Dior Going Forward

Dior has had a quite a bit of controversy surrounding their creative directors over the past years. Dior has been without a creative director since October 2015 after Raf Simons departed. As reported by WWD, Dior is expected to appoint Maria Grazia Chiuri, Valentino’s past creative director, as their new creative director. If everything goes as planned, Chiuri will be Dior’s first female creative director in its 70-year long history. Her first collection with the fashion house will be this fall, for the Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear season.

This new appointment could bring about a new shift in fashion direction. Simons’ creations had a minimalistic and futuristic feel. The new Italian designer Chiuri is known for more graceful, feminine looks that take inspiration from all over the world including destinations like Rome and Africa.

Going forward, it will be interesting to see if Dior can continue to produce hits like the Diorever while still honoring the fashion houses’ original roots.
