The House is presenting, in images, the virtuoso skills embodied by the Lady Dior bag sculpted with the Rêve d’Infini motif dreamed up by Pietro Ruffo.
Unveiled at the Dior cruise 2023 show, this new essential expresses Maria Grazia Chiuri’s fascination with the world’s crafts. Punctuated with the iconic compass rose, flowers, the Sevillian knot and the poetic maxim “Déploie tes ailes et rêve d’infini” (“Spread your wings and dream of infinity”), this object of desire reveals a profusion of rich, intricate details, the result of meticulous leatherwork using the sbalzo technique, producing a unique three-dimensional effect.
The artisan then assembles the handles, glues the leather to the two cork curves, and skillfully secures the whole with a round-headed hammer. The bag is then crafted around a wooden mould adapted to its exact proportions. The D-I-O-R charms and eyelets complete this exceptional creation, a symbol of passion and excellence.
An ode to the beauty of handiwork and Andalusian culture.
