Christian Dior Tote Bags Are Here To Stay
We are entering an era where larger tote bags are finally trending again. As a mini bag lover, this hurts a little, but I'm also psyched, I can finally carry more than a cardholder and lipgloss with me from now on. A tote bag is essential in any gals wardrobe as these larger bags are necessary for our everyday lives. We need tote bags that can take us from season to season, pair well with our own style, and come from our favorite fashion house; Christian Dior.

Carrie Bradshaw carried the famous Christian Dior tote that folds. We would wear this today TBH.
Why Are Christian Dior Tote Bags So Popular?
You know the drill; here at Bagover.com, we like to talk about the luxury side of handbags, and tote bags are no different. Sure, can any other no-name brand do the same job, if not better than the designers we talk about? Absolutely! Do we care? No chance! We love luxury handbags; not everyone understands it, but we do.
Let's chat about a Christian Dior tote. The Dior book tote nearly BROKE the internet at its launch time and might have single-handedly instigated the big bag trend. While there are many features of the large handbag that might not make sense, i.e. no zipper, no magnetic closure, no pockets, too structured, etc. But let's be real, she is STUNNING.
Christian Dior Tote Bag History
First introduced by current Christian Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, the book tote has remained white hot since it was launched. It is now available in many variations, which include both embroidered and embellished, as well as full leather! It's a beautiful marriage between casual and luxe and can be styled up or down.
The Dior Book Tote Size Guide
The original and perhaps the most popular size of the Dior book tote is of Dimensions: 42 x 35 x 18.5 cm / 16.5 x 14 x 7.5 inches. You can now find the tote in a small size such as the small size Dimensions: 26.5 x 21 x 14 cm / 10.5 x 8.5 x 5.5 inches or the Mini Dior Book Tote Phone Bag 13 x 18 x 5 cm / 5 x 7 x 2 inches (comes with strap & fits all iPhone sizes!)
These totes can be worn over the shoulder or handheld. While many say this bag is quite heavy without anything in it, it is crafted with the finest of materials… those don't come light. Before purchasing, you have to know what you will be using the tote for. It may not be totally good for an every day but will come in handy as a travel bag as it can sit comfortably on your rolling carry-on bag.
Nonetheless, since the Christian Dior tote bag was launched, it now has many versions available. See the complete line of sizes below.

The Dior Diorissimo Tote Bag
An oldie but a goody. But let's not get too crazy; it's not that old. Just because Dior doesn't necessarily sell this handbag anymore doesn't mean it's not still relevant. I mean, one quick look at this, and you might think it's a variation of the famous Lady Dior bag! The hardware is engraved with the Dior logo; it's a simple shape yet elegant; it comes in small and large sizes and a whole array of colors! It even comes with a matching pouch, and as far as totes go, this should definitely be on the list.
This bag screams elegance, and similarly to the Lady Dior bag, it has a “DIOR” charm hanging from the handles. It can be worn handheld or carried as a crossbody bag. As far as tote bags go, this bag is perfect for every day. The classic shape and style make it both trendy and classic. The lady Dior-inspired tote bag is one of our favorites!
How much is Christian Dior Tote Bag?
The styles mentioned above can range in price. The Dior Book Tote at this moment can range for the following pricing:
Dior Book Tote Pricing
- Small: $3,150.00
- Medium: $3,300.00
- Large: $3,500.00
As you can see, the pricing differences among the sizes are not large. It really boils down to what size is going to work best for your lifestyle and body frame. As someone who is 5'1”, I might not opt for one of the larger totes but instead shop for the medium or even small. I love canvas or even velvet materials; frankly, anything by this fashion house I am inspired by.
Christian Dior Tote Straw Dioriviera
If you're looking to really save some cash, then this option might be the best one yet. The Dior Straw Dioriviera tote bag is a simple shoulder bag made of… you guessed it… straw. The woven straw makes for a conversation starter and a really beautiful medium-sized handbag. The Dior fashion house created a straw bag that is perfect for beach days, lounging by the pool, or even a hot summer day shopping outdoors.
If you're looking for a simple Christian Dior tote that resembles the Dior book tote, this might be the one for you. It's a material you don't see every day but is easily recognizable. As mentioned above, the price tag of this puppy is well below the others mentioned above.
Large Lady Dior Bag
Here's an obvious choice, or perhaps not? I think we've seen the Lady Dior handbag in the small medium and large sizes, but mainly in the small, mini, and even micro sizes more so! Our Instagram influencers have advertised the smaller versions of this Christian Dior tote bag that we forget that it even comes in larger sizes.
She's a classic, a full embodiment of elegance, and held by the one and only Princess Diana. Given her namesake bag, Diana would carry this bag quite often and might even be the reason it remains so popular and regal. She is a lady, after all. Much like the saddle bag, this is a bag that is recognized as a classic handbag for the fashion house. From mini sizes to larger ones, this is as classic as classic totes go. You can find them embroidered, adorned in crystals, and crafted in the finest materials and motifs.
While there might be many other totes by Dior still in existence from past seasons (we love sustainability), the ones above are our faves. They are classic, chic, modern, and timeless. From their shapes to their materials, women and men globally love the recognizable prints and motifs by Dior.
