The grey days of winter don’t feel quite so bleak when accompanied by a sleek sidekick like this Dior Small Cannage Soft Calfskin Dior Caro ($4,800).
The design, which is crafted in the French fashion house’s Italian ateliers, employs the iconic Cannage pattern on its exterior for an unmistakable Dior appeal. The geometric weave is said to require 18,000 stitches in the quilting stage alone, but what makes this particular silhouette so alluring is the combination of the Cannage weaving with touches of metal, including the CD signature. In two sizes—small and large—the Caro flap bag is available in various hues of calfskin (the mint green is a favourite) along with limited offerings in shearling and denim, including a raw iteration and the season’s covetable Tie & Dior motif.
Few will be surprised to hear the phrase “it bag” already being tossed around when discussing the design. —Aleesha Harris
