Created in 1995, the Lady Dior bag became a recognizable handbag as a result of its architectural design, metallic charms that spell out the name Dior and cannage motif inspired by Napoleon III chairs.

The seven artists Marc Quinn, Jason Martin, Ian Davenport, Mat Collishaw, Matthew Porter, Chris Martin and Daniel Gordon were given carte blanche to reinterpret the bag. Their creations were unveiled at the Dior Miami boutique, followed by Los Angeles and is now touring in exhibition in South Korea, China, London, Dubai and Paris.
