Dior brings back Cannage design men's bags with its new Summer line
The iconic Dior Perforated Cannage design has made a comeback this season in Kim Jones' Summer 2019 line. The Cannage pattern has been inspired by Napoleon III-style chairs that were originally used to seat guests at the Dior Haute Couture shows at30 Avenue Montaigne.
The bags are available in black and tan perforated leather, created with laser cutting and handwork along the bag reveals an inner canvas pouch printed with the KAWS redesign of Dior’s bee emblem.
The new bags reiterates the fresh approach and the diagogue between heritage and fashion that Dior's men’s summer 2019 advertising campaign first promoted in December 2018. The Summer 2019 line tweaks iconic motifs held dear by the brand, including the bee, toile de jouy, the Dior Oblique Cangas or the Cannage in laser-cut form, are all freely employed but reinvented and re-invited with a subtle mastery of re-appropriation.
Speaking about the campaign, Kim Jones said last year, “I wanted this advertising to reflect the spirit of the summer show and the beauty of Dior“.
The series of images featured soft and sharp shades of pink, and bright tones like yellow.
