Within the season that ex-creative director Raf Simons took departure, the House of Dior has proven its unyielding bedrock above all. Still fiercely feminine and contemporarily classic, the maison's studio — under the direction of Serge Ruffieux and Lucie Meier — has kept Monsieur Dior's storied legacy burning bright.

A key marker of the brand's sagacity is the Runway bag from
fall/winter 2016. Masterminded in the heart of the Dior design studios and handcrafted by the crème de la crème of Italy's artisans, its clean lines and floral finery speaks of the maison's very manifesto. Stitching together the best in contemporary design and supreme craftsmanship, behold your childhood beads, pailletes and bows transformed into a whimsical, sugar-coated façade embroidered onto the expanse of buttery, soft leather.

Before you doubt the brand's ability to whip up a timeless classic, also check out the solid-hued, textured versions of the Runway bag that's cut from exotic skins. Between the audaciously embellished and sumptiously deluxe, it's clear that little at Dior has changed — the French purveyors of luxe certainly know their way to every woman's heart.

Shop the Dior Runway bag at Dior boutiques in Singapore from July onwards.
