One of the biggest bag launches to come out last year was the Dior Bobby which was unveiled by Maria Grazia Chiuri for Dior’s Fall 2020 collection. The Dior Bobby infuses timeless modernity with nods to iconic house details. As for the name, Christian Dior’s beloved dog, Bobby, has had his name utilized for numerous looks over time at Dior.
In 2020, many luxury brands added a sleek compact shoulder bag to their offerings but the most popular of this new wave of bags is the Dior Bobby. The Bobby is a structured hobo style bag that is defined by the CD initials that sit atop the buckle on the front of the bag. That buckle features an easy magnetic opening which opens to the half moon shaped interior. The exterior is quite refined, with simple yet elegant curves which allow for this bag to be a classy everyday carry.[embedded content]
Each size (there’s Small, Medium and Large) contains the same design elements as the next, which is nice for uniformity and expectations on a single bag design. The front flap opening reveals the interior main compartment. I should note that the main compartment does not span the entire width of the bag, as the structured leather cuts in a bit on each side to allow the bag to keep its shape and really offer a luxurious saddle bag feel. Once inside, you’ll find a small back pocket, but the larger interior compartment is where I’d store most items. Another nice touch is that the back of the bag has an open pocket that runs the entire width of the design, along with a ’30 Montaigne’ signature embossed in leather sitting halfway between the exterior pocket.
Each Dior Bobby has a removable shoulder strap, some versions coming with a simple leather strap that is adjustable while others have a Dior Oblique embroidered strap. You can always change out the strap to transform this bag into a more personalized version and the removable (and adjustable) shoulder strap also allows this bag to be carried over the shoulder, crossbody or by hand.
As this bag quickly became a Dior staple, the House has continued to release new renditions that vary in material, color, and detailing while continuing to offer the classics as well. Below is a detailed guide to the Dior Bobby including sizes, prices, different materials offered, and celebrities spotted with the bag.
