Those who couldn't get their hands on Christian Dior's limited-edition saddle-bag collection (some pieces sold out within a few hours) can find solace in the brand's spring/summer accessories collection. Taking their cue from Galliano's previous haute couture collection, which featured women dressed as medieval warriors, chain-mail and all, Dior's designers plumped for a combination of luxury (think exotic skins such as snake, goat and lizard) and edgy detailing (mesh and chains). The must-have piece is the Jeanne, a style inspired by French martyr Joan of Arc, which is fashioned to look like armour. It is available in several styles and fabrics including a luxe grey croc version (below; HK$51,900). Being a warrior has never looked so chic.
