From top: Dior’s fox fur and lambskin bag, $7,000, embroidered wool crepe evening bag with ostrich feathers, $7,500, gilded metal and resin bead necklace with ostrich feathers, $8,100, and calfskin shoe, $1,190, at Dior, 800.929.DIOR.
It’s a material pileup. Buttery calfskin looks unabashedly luxe; breezy
ostrich feathers play against structured beads; and, of course, there’s
that thick, lush fox fur. There’s no question about it—Dior’s fall
accessories are an ode to the mesmerizing effect of natural, albeit
unexpected, textures. And with its quirky, moody mix, the lineup lends a
rebel-chic vibe to the elegant house of Dior. French-to-the-bone Camille
Miceli, the company’s newly appointed creative director of accessories,
has a slightly more impudent take on the season: “We wanted to give
another edge to the accessories by using hairy details,” she explains.
“A libertine girl likes hairy!”
