Flap Bags Are Back And This May Just Be The Best One To Tote Thus Far

It looks like we’re revisiting the decade of complete elegance and glamour as the major bag of the 50s is back—better and bolder. 

The flap bags were a runaway hit in the women’s bag department during the 50s. In that era, one would notice almost every woman toting one, all thanks to its small yet spacious capacity to put all your essentials. In fact, the big celebrities of that era, such as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, were total head-turners with their own flap bags. Truly, it signalled the end of small purses, especially for the high society, because what mattered already was the functionality of the bag.

With an understanding of the fashion history and equity between aesthetics and function, Dior’s Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri recently unveiled the Dior Bobby—the new flap bag of timeless modernity and a subtle tribute to Christian Dior’s beloved dog, whose name christened numerous looks. As the founding couturier recounts in his memoirs: “In each collection, there was a suit that was expected to be a success was called Bobby.”

Designed for Fall 2020, Dior Bobby was majestically created with soft and feminine lines, possessing an easy and assertive elegance. It is also decorated with the initials “CD” as its delicate buckle, hence, making this just the perfect bag for the modern-day lady boss.

This hobo-style bag is available in three sizes and four colors—black, cream, camel, and blue Dior Oblique canvas—conveying a liberated, self-confident sophistication. Its generous, delicate curves are complemented by matching straps—in leather or Dior Oblique canvas—for a resolute couture effect. Now, this is what we call an object of desire that expresses the contemporary essence of Dior now more than ever.


And in case you haven’t noticed, we’ve already spotted numerous influencers and celebrities toting the Dior Bobby. From Suzy Bae, Jisoo, Lee Sung Kyung, to Lee Da Hee, all of them effortlessly elevated their simple look into an ensemble of understated elegance and allure.
