Bag shaped like a riding saddle, the fabric body is woven with a repeat design of the Christian Dior monogram. Trimmed with blue leather piping it has a carry strap, and a decorative front strap and an asymmetrical fastening strap in the same blue leather with yellow topstitching. An unusual feature is the use of large gold metal monogram elements, hinging the carry strap to the body of the bag, and a gold metal ‘D’ monogram weighting down the decorative centre front strap. The front is decorated with six embroidered patches, and two pin-on badges, the back is decorated with two embroidered patches.
