Charmed to meet you

Charmed to meet you

For days when one needs to leave home with more than keys and a wallet, it takes more than deep pockets to carry all the daily essentials with ease and not look bulky. Compact, sleek and unmistakably Dior is the Dior Charm bag, a handsome satchel that instantly elevates any look — formal or casual.

The Dior Charm bag demonstrates a sense of universality in Dior’s codes. Historically more prominent in Dior’s women’s universe, Kim Jones effortlessly incorporates the Cannage motif into the bag’s exterior. Laser-cut detailing imbues the bag with clean lines and offers a geometrical, tactile texture against the smooth calfskin. The Dior Charm buckle attached to the top flap, reminiscent of the individual letters that dangle off its classic Lady Dior bag, effortlessly captures attention. Antiqued silver-finish hardware further bestows the bag with a rustic, well-worn charm.

Structured yet curved around the corners, the Dior Charm offers a briefcase-like sleekness that seamlessly enhances the wearer’s outfit rather than sticking out like an overstuffed wallet in a side pants pocket. An adjustable shoulder strap allows its owner to determine where the bag sits against the body and converts from a shoulder to a crossbody bag. With just the right amount of storage to carry the modern man’s everyday essentials, the Dior Charm’s spacious, singular compartment allows one to check in his power bank, wallet, and planner and retrieve them with ease.

Timeless in silhouette yet modern in spirit, the three hues of black, grey or cognac easily incorporate into work or leisure settings. The Dior Charm also comes in a mini version for the light packer, equipped with three card slots to fit the bare essentials for everyday commute.
