The bag now comes in a wider east-west shape, in addition to the north-south version we’ve already seen, as well as ostrich, crocodile, and heavy beaded versions. TheDior Diorissimo BagsThey also continue to be a standout, particularly in mirrored silver leather. Would you be brave enough to wear a print version with Warhol?
