8 Bags You Won’t See On Every Other Influencer This Summer

It was hard to ignore. Nearly every picture on my feed the other day included the new Dior 30 Montaigne Bag and, although it’s a beautiful bag, it will likely follow suit of the saddle bag and make its way in (and possibly out) swiftly. If you somehow didn’t notice, the major buzz around the revival of the Dior Saddle last year was definitely held up by the plethora of IG-girls who all mysteriously supported the then-forgotten silhouette from 20 years ago.

The 30 Montaigne is a new bag entirely, but leading from their successful – albeit annoying – campaign from last year, they’ve once again launched a major campaign for the debut.
