with Divia Harilela
The saddle bag has become a classic since Carrie Bradshaw sported one in Sex and the City. For spring, John Galliano has injected some Latin flavour into the design and given it a new, slouchy shape. It features washed-out denim with a brown and tan leather trim (right; $7,500), making it perfect for jeans. Also on offer is the double-sided Dior Gaucho bag (above; $11,900; medium size), which comes in super-soft leather that moulds to the body. The bag is adorned with a rusty key charm and a coin modelled on those carried by traditional Argentine cowboys, or gauchos. The Gaucho collection is available in several colours from Christian Dior, The Landmark, Central, tel: 2524 8277.
