Lady Dior as seen by


One of the most famous handbags ever, the Lady Dior was created in 1995. Princess Diana got it as a gift from the French first lady while she was visiting Paris. It became Diana's favorite and, therefore, women in the world's favorite. It has become an iconic accessory and a symbol of timeless style and class. So of course it had to inspire the greatest artists of our times: David Lynch, John Cameron Mitchell, Patrick Demarchelier, Arne Quinze, Wen Fang, Maarten Baas, Olympia Scarry, Recycle Group, Luca Trevisani, Vedovamazzei, and Alessandro Carano and Davide Stucchi. At the Triennale there are more than 70 art pieces on display, each of which honours in its own way this iconic bag.

And while I'm saving to buy my own Lady Dior (it might take me a couple of years), I just had to visit the exhibition!
