Having already landed multiple knockouts like the Bobby and the Book Tote, Maria Grazia Chiuri keeps the handbag hits coming at Dior with Cruise 2021’s can’t-miss accoutrement — the all-new St. Honoré tote, christened in homage to the Maison’s recently-opened flagship along Rue Saint-Honoré in the heart of Paris’ first arrondissement.
Joining the 30 Montaigne family, a line of timeless wardrobe essentials that salutes Dior’s ever-renewed heritage, this understatedly chic design takes on a structured, squarish silhouette reminiscent of the now-discontinued Diorever bag, topped off with dual handles and a detachable strap that enable it to be worn in various ways: by hand, over the shoulder and across the torso. A swivel clasp in the shape of the initials “CD” (a hallmark of the 30 Montaigne series) adorns the overturned flap, opening up to reveal a roomy interior divided by a large zip pocket, while the 30 Montaigne signature is discreetly embossed on the reverse.
Crafted in grained calfskin or smooth box leather, the St. Honoré arrives in two sizes and five shades of cloud blue, dove grey, cord beige, black and latté white, with the “CD” closure rendered in ton-sur-ton enamel or antiqued gold-tone metal on the medium and large formats, respectively. Sublimely sophisticated, Dior’s newest classic is a wear-forever investment you won’t regret making.
