One of the most beloved Y2K It bags, the striking Christian Dior Saddle Bag took the fashion world by storm when it was introduced in the 1999 Dior SS00 show. The saddle-shaped bag was instantly adopted by Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and other fashion-savvy celebrities. Of course, when Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw sported her pink and gold number on Sex and the City, the bag’s “It” status was confirmed.
The Dior Saddle Bag was inspired by a racy photo by Helmut Newton, “Saddle I, Paris,” featuring a stunning model wearing a saddle on her back. This suggestive inspiration for the design has lent a sexy, seductive air to the style. The bag’s undulating curves mimic those of the saddles worn by thoroughbreds, while the prominent, dangling D charm calls to mind a stirrup. This striking bag was all the rage at the turn of the millennium, and it has come roaring back now with a reissue by Dior’s creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri.
