Why You Should Invest in Pre-Owned Dior Bags for Your Store

Christian Dior, who was known for his simplistically elegant designs, founded his storied French fashion house in 1946. Prior to launching his namesake brand, Dior worked alongside Pierre Balmain at Lucien Lelong where they designed dresses for the wives of military officers and French collaborators. Dior's designs were more voluptuous and body-hugging than the boxy, and thus became an expert at creating feminine shapes and silhouettes for any woman of any size.

“Individuality will always be one of the conditions of real elegance.” - Christian Dior

Christian Dior, who was known for his simplistically elegant designs, founded his storied French fashion house in 1946. Prior to launching his namesake brand, Dior worked alongside Pierre Balmain at Lucien Lelong where they designed dresses for the wives of military officers and French collaborators. Dior’s designs were more voluptuous and body-hugging than the boxy, and thus became an expert at creating feminine shapes and silhouettes for any woman of any size.

Dior was so dedicated to ensuring every modern woman of the 50s looked impeccable and elegant, he wrote a guide called “Little Dictionary of Fashion” in 1954, which included rules about fashion and handbags. He said purses should always be made of the highest quality materials and exclusively handcrafted, and he was clearly a man of his word.

DIOR’S EXQUISITE MATERIALS

Dior’s been designing handbags for decades, and they’ve stood the test of time. Let’s take a look at some of the high-quality fabrics that are now used on Dior bags.

ULTRA-MATTE LEATHER

The Ultra-Matte leather features a smooth, tonal upper. Neither super dressy nor super casual, the broad matte application results in a timeless and sleek design with a modern twist that goes with just about anything.

OBLIQUE MONOGRAM JACQUARD

While not exactly a material, the Oblique Jacquard features an artsy monogram design. Used on the Saddle Bags, 30 Montaigne and the Book Totes, this super sturdy canvas fabric is the perfect choice for any logo-lover who wants tote their essentials in style.

CANNAGE-EMBROIDERED CANVAS

A reiteration of the now almost iconic Book Tote, this carryall is crafted in sturdy canvas with Dior’s famous Cannage Embroidery.

LAMBSKIN LEATHER

While lambskin leather is classic and beautiful, it’s easily scuffed and damaged which can make it difficult to keep clean. But it’s still a very durable choice for a bag as it won’t lose its shape or structure.

PATENT LEATHER

This gorgeous, specially-treated leather features a high-gloss, reflective finish that’s fabulous, but if it’s not properly taken care of it can be dulled, damaged, and scratched. It can be difficult to refurbish.

SHINY GOATSKIN

Made from male mountain goats, this exquisite leather is iridescent and features slight graining. Despite being lightweight and ultra-soft, it’s very tough and difficult to scratch or blemish.

BOX CALFSKIN

Box Calf is a fine-grain leather that’s commonly used in Dior bags…especially the 30 Montaigne. Due to its sturdiness, it easily retains its shape, but it’s also a delicate leather that easily scuffs and scratches. If it gets wet, it might develop blisters.

GRAINED CALFSKIN LEATHER

The grainy calfskin is one of the most popular Dior leathers due to its durability and resilience. It’s easy to clean, sturdy and strong… perfect for your customer’s everyday bag.

METALLIC CALFSKIN LEATHER

Dior’s metallic calfskin leather is not only dazzling and elegant, but it’s also extremely durable.

DIOR OBLIQUE-EMBOSSED CALFSKIN

For those shoppers who’d prefer the beauty and sturdiness of calfskin, but would like an artful, totally Dior touch, the embossed calfskin bag is a go-to choice.
