The luxe of luxury fashion is about to get a dose of high art. Dior has created 14 limited edition versions of its iconic Lady Dior handbag, designed by 10 contemporary artists—including Sarah Morris and Richard Prince.
"We believe that the collaboration with artists from the international art scene on the new Lady Dior bag will give this iconic luxury accessory a new dimension,” Dior CEO Sidney Toledano said in a statement.
