Meet Dior’s New It Bag For 2021: The Caro
If you're thinking of splurging on a new designer handbag, then it's worth considering a style that will stand the test of time, rather than just a one-season wonder that will eventually end up gathering dust in your wardrobe. For this, the best option is to look to the classics, and amongst designers like Chanel and Hermes, Dior is quickly becoming the new go-to brand to own. Just last year, Dior’s wallet ranked first in the list of luxury items most likely to retain its original retail price and other designs saw an 80% increase in the mark-up of sales.
Recently added to its line-up of covetable it bags is the new Caro. Designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and launched at the brand’s 2021 Cruise collection, the Caro bag is a homage to Christian Dior’s sister, Catherine Dior – who was affectionately known as “Caro.”
The sleek, chain strap bag comes in supple leather in the ‘cannage’ motif and is available in black, grey, sky blue and mint green, as well as in small versions in shearling, raw denim and ‘Tie & Dior’. The links on its chain represent the brand’s “CD” signature, and echo the CD clasp.
The new Caro bag comes in three sizes, including a new mini size which is proving popular with influencers.
A classic in the making, the Caro bag is as versatile as it is stylish. With a broad range of textures and finishes to choose from, it can take you from daytime to evening looks with ease.
Rumour has it that Dior might be increasing the prices of all its handbags this year, so the time is nigh to snap the Caro up now - your wardrobe and wallet will thank you.
