However, this new bag is not a brand new design and many people already know it. As early as 1999, in the third year of John Galliano as Dior’s designer, he brought an impression.

In the early 2000s, Dior saddle bag was the classic design of designer John Galliano and became the brand’s most representative handbag.
In the same year, the third season of the American TV series “Sex and the City” was launched. The main character Carrie Bradshaw was in the fifth episode, holding the light purple white Dior saddle bag, which laid the position of the saddle bag in the fashion industry. The saddle bag began to enter the public field.
In 2006, Galliano launched a new collection of saddle bags inspired by twelve countries. Galliano told the New York Times: “She has become a classic.” But unfortunately, a year later, It Bags has become no longer trendy. However, three years after the saddle bag was silent, John Galliano left Dior in 2011. Since then, no successor designers have re-enacted the saddle bag designed by John Galliano.
Born in the millennium, it is almost 20 years old, and now it has finally returned. Although the returning saddle bag did not involve John Galliano, Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri continued the original classic design and injected the new elements that are popular nowadays allow the saddle bag to return to a new look and make it revive again.
