The bag is made in the House’s ateliers in Italy, and after its pieces are precisely cut from calf leather, the essential quilting stage starts.
Then, a delicate ‘Christian Dior’ gold seal is affixed before the bag, which is mounted inside-out, is at last turned right-side out. Finally, metal accessories adorned with the precious ‘CD’ signature are affixed, from the chain links to the clasp.
The Caro comes in two sizes and several timeless shades including black, beige and ivory, though for a fun fashion-forward twist you can also buy it in red, mint green, sky blue or compass rose.
The small version is also available in three exclusive variations enhanced with shearling and raw denim, or punctuated with the hypnotic Tie & Dior as seen in the 2021 cruise show.
A new icon.
