Just in time for summer, the Lady Dior has been reinterpreted with a natural wicker body that’s been expertly handcrafted by the fashion house’s artisans. The Mini Lady Dior comes with dark blue leather handles, a blue #DiorOblique jacquard drawstring pouch, as well as a signature “Christian Dior” band in the middle.

If you can’t get enough of Jacquemus’ micro bags, here’s another to make you swoon. Crafted from pink leather and natural raffia, it’s got a tiny top handle and adjustable strap. You can easily carry it on its own or attach it to your favourite bag as an accessory.
