The Lady Dior seen by Betty Mariani

Born in 1993, the French artist Betty Mariani uses the techniques of street art and graffiti to show that there magic in the everyday. Her interpretation of the medium-sized Lady Dior bag features a female face covered with splashes of color. Embroidery adds a sense of relief to the print, as if several people had participated in the decoration of the bag; an idea that alludes to the world of graffiti, where several artists contribute to the same mural.

The Lady Dior seen by Namsa Leuba

The work of this Swiss-Guinean artist questions the way in which African identities are perceived in the West. Inspired by the marriage of cultures, the colorful Lady Dior bags designed by Namsa Leuba pushed the craftspeople in the leatherworking  ateliers to surpass the limits of their savoir-faire. On her medium-sized bag, which took over three hundred hours of work, mink, fabric and beads were sewn together like pieces of a puzzle. The other model has been woven in the manner of old African textiles.

The Lady Dior seen by Friedrich Kunath

Born in Germany, Friedrich Kunath has made Los Angeles his new territory; it’s there that he finds his inspiration in song lyrics, the names of shows, German romanticism and conceptual art. By juxtaposing these influences, his work generates genuine emotional experiences. For the Dior Lady Art project, he has transposed one of his best-known works: a rainbow painted in oils, stretching across a dreamlike landscape in watercolor. On the bag, the artist conceived a photographic effect of a couple kissing, with handles like rainbows.

The Lady Dior seen by Jack Pierson

Imbued with nostalgia and seduction, American Jack Pierson's work explores the flip side of the idea of the American dream in various media such as photography, word sculptures and installations. This idea is reflected in his two Lady Dior bags, whose design, inspired by drawings created during a stay in Paris, evokes feelings both ephemeral and eternal. The medium-sized bag is ideal for day with its electric orange handles and art deco-style charms. The other is its perfect opposite for the evening with gold and silver thread embroidery.

The Lady Dior seen by Hong Hao

Famous for his scans of everyday objects, this Beijing-based artist has mastered the art of transcending the boundaries of traditional media. It is in this logic that he took up the challenge of transposing his work onto two Lady Dior bags. On the first is a map made using a technique of sewing in relief, where inverted colors and modified names make us discover another vision of the world. On the second bag, the artist has placed some of his scanned objects, in the process achieving a creation that’s both pop and sophisticated.
