Angelina Jolie’s style is dominated by investment bags. Her current favorites include the Salvatore Ferragamo Studio bag, the Celine clasp purse, and the Saint Laurent Icare tote. She also recently added the Dior 95.22 top-handle to the inventory. Given its history, the actor was spotted in Paris carrying a cream replica of the bag, which contrasted with her black coat dress with gold buttons and stiletto heels.
The 95.22, which was unveiled at Dior’s autumn/winter 2022 ready-to-wear show, is a fresh take on the house’s legendary Lady Dior purse, which Princess Diana famously favored and frequently worn in navy and black during the 1990s. When it was first introduced in 1995, it was known as the Chouchou; the following year, it was renamed the Lady Dior in honor of its most famous admirer.
The 95.22, whose name combines the Lady Dior launch year and 2022, the year of its reinvention, is identical to the original in that it has handles that are adorned with metal hardware and charms and a main body with textured macrocannage. What characterizes the two styles’ primary differences? In contrast to the older bag’s recognizable boxy form, the 95.22 features a subtle curved design.
