The biggest question: Diorama vs Diorever
I know not everyone loves the new Dior with Raf Simons. But I'm pretty much always on the #TEAMRAF side just because he makes everything so effortlessly modern and versatile yet luxurious at the same time. I've been eyeing the two new Dior IT bag: Diorama and Diorever for almost 3 days now. Ever since Kendall was seen carrying one in Paris.
Deciding to buy which bag is always difficult for me. I don't know if I should settle on another Givenchy or Proenza or Saint Laurent that cost around $2500, or I should get a Dior or Chanel, which is a couple thousand dollars more. Or just wait until another year and buy a Kelly or Birkin from the mothership.
Anyway, there's not that many celebrities that is seen with Diorever yet, but these are from the Dior lookbook. The shape is basically a structured, top handle bag with a detachable long strap. The shape almost resembles the Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour but with a top flap like Hermès Birkin. I love it so much in metallics, but I also equally love it in black and dark green. And just like Birkin, there are two ways to wear it, with the flap closed or with the flap flipped on the back side of the bag.
Moving on to its sister, Diorama, the IT bag last year seen on Rihanna, Marion Cortillard, Dakota Fanning and so many more! This bag features the same crest-shaped clasp as the Diorever, but in a shoulder sling rectangular shape. To me, this is almost a direct comparison to the Chanel Boy bag. But I love the Diorama cooler vibes. I love the fact that Diorama is introduced in so many variations of colors and leather and textures, so there are so much to choose from.
