“The Dior Book Tote: The Chicest Travel Companion”

The Dior Book Tote is a charming piece of artistry that can easily be overlooked if never seen on the go in real life. Then every once in a while (like a chic unicorn spotted in the wild), a subtly glam fashionista strolls by, toting one as her personal item carry-on at the airport. Time will stand still as you appreciate its beauty and effortless functionality.

 

Dior says it best, describing the Dior Book Tote as “the embodiment of casual elegance”. Tote the spacious yet streamlined bag in hand or go the hands-free route, wearing it over a shoulder. It’s available in jacquard, embroidered canvas, and calfskin leather.

 

Be sure to look for special iterations too, including the US exclusive American Flag tote featuring more than one million stitches and the tie-dye-like KaléiDiorscopic tote in blue that will make you wish festival season wasn’t coming to an end.

 

 

Speaking of special iterations… the TravelDior Collection is just that. The brainchild of Dior’s creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri. TravelDior is an ultra-exclusive collection released this July to coincide with the opening of their new flagship on Paris’ storied shopping avenue, Champs-Élysées. At the time, the collection was only available at that location and still now may only be found in two other shops in Japan and the UK. We’ll be on the lookout as pieces pop up on FASHIONPHILE.

 

TravelDior offers an embroidered-canvas travel backpack, a luggage case on wheels (perfect as a carry-on), a trolley, a vanity case, a perfume case for travel-sized fragrances, luggage labels and more. Each design is created in the Dior Oblique canvas, a lovely print that emerged with the Dior Book Tote but actually happens to be an update of a signature by Monsieur Dior himself.
