Dior’s Lady Art #4 Features Collaborations with Mickalene Thomas, Raqib Shaw, and Other Artists

No contributor

This week, Dior returns with the beloved Dior Lady Art bag for its fourth edition, gifting us with a tribute to the multiplicities of femininity. Just as the modern woman is constantly reinventing herself, the Lady Art #4 series reimagines an iconic style once again, through collaborations with eleven artists from around the globe.

Staying true to traditional Dior codes and aesthetics, the collection begins with the signature rectangular handbag—the classic Lady Dior. The house then invited artists from around the world—locations like Mexico, Portugal, the United States, and Japan—to transform the purse into a unique creation, informed by their personal universe and inspiration.

This year, the collaboration resulted in exquisite wearable art like Marguerite Humeau’s warped, pearlescent design; a playful red iteration by Maria Nepomuceno; and a beaded patchwork collage from Mickalene Thomas. The collection also features designs by artist Joana Vasconcelos, whose black and red heart design is simple and sweet; an explosion of blue and pink beading and Puka shells by Rina Banerjee; a bag with colorful stripes and a transparent handle from Wang Guangle; three whimsical designs by Jia Lee; Kohei Nawa’s glass-reminiscent creations, eye-catching geometric visuals from Eduardo Terrazas, botanical-inspired pieces by Raqib Shaw, and Athi-Patra Ruga’s pearl-encrusted colorful beading and embroidery.
