Wylde Loves: Dior Pre-Fall 2017

Report and photos by David Newton

Dior is on a roll right now and hitting all the right notes under head designer Maria Grazia Chiuri. The first woman to helm this long-standing Paris fashion house, she has nailed her colours well and truly to the mast and has even emblazoned clothes with the slogans "Dio(R)evolution" and "We should All Be Feminists". However this has not come at the expense of the legendary brand; Chiuri has ensured the name shouts loud and clear, from accessories especially. We are loving (and coveting) this neat, cool and compact Pre-Fall 2017 clutch bag in red leather with "DIOR" attached to the oh-so-handy hand strap, turning the letters into a quasi knuckle-duster. I guess that's Dior right now: tough, cool but still very feminine.
