A Grand Designer from Granville
It's no secret that I love Christian Dior Couture. Whilst in college, I started my formal luxury career at a Dior Boutique in the United States.
And I'm currently loving Dior's Granville collection. Named after the city where Christian's childhood home is located, the Granville handbag features the iconic, hand-stitched Cannage pattern - a Louis XVI print that was the same pattern featured on the gold gilded chairs inside the main salon of the House of Dior (at 30, Avenue Montaigne in Paris - which also was the inspiration of it's own collection, Le Trente).
The Granville handbag is of classic shape and design with silver-tone metal D.I.O.R charms, a main zipped pocket, 2 large pockets, and is carried in the hand or over the sholder (with included strap). Measures 32,5 cm by 30 cm by 15,5 cm. Available in lambskin and patent leather or by special order in python or ostrich.
