Introducing the latest in a line of limited edition Lady Dior handbags. After launching a global design project in collaboration with London-based artist Marc Quinn – who created the first limited edition collection of the Lady Dior Art Project – the maison has continued to tap more artists, three from the UK — Jason Martin, Ian Davenport and Mat Collishaw — as well as three from the US — Matthew Porter, Chris Martin and Daniel Gordon. In an exclusive interview Porter details his designs for the house of Dior.

The collaboration, aptly titled the Lady Dior Art Project, sees a coveted range of art-inspired handbags, pouches and accessories as well as limited edition creations, which are set to travel through Miami, Los Angeles, Korea, London, China, Dubai and then on to Paris. Discover the limited edition Lady Dior handbags now...

Chris Martin

Daniel Gordon

Using a monochromatic colour scheme, the American artist has created a collection of coveted pouches and handbags that showcase his craftsmanship when it comes to prints.

Ian Davenport

Inspired by jewel tones and rigid lines, the British native translates his creative vision of freedom and spontaneity through vertical stripes that results in an eye-catching creation. 

Jason Martin

Known for juxtaposing texture against monochromatic tones, Jason Martin has created a 12-piece collection for the maison complemented by matte finishings and sequins.

Marc Quinn

The London-based creative reimagined Dior's signature handbag with a beautifully-created range of iris and orchid-inspired prints.

Mat Collishaw

Mat Collishaw's artistic works blend texture and imagery drawn from nature, which concludes with hyper-realistic designs.

Matthew Porter

Using a black and white motif accented with a striking red hue, the Brooklyn-based artist showcases his interpretation of light through minimalism and geometric composition.

The limited edition Lady Dior handbags will be available in Dubai at Mall of the Emirates on December 8, 2016. Also don't miss Marion Cotillard front the Lady Dior ad campaign for Resort '17.
