Maarten Baas for Dior exhibited in Shanghai

15. July 2016

The exhibition “Bagism” in Shanghai, from July 17th to October 9th 2016. One of the bags that’s included is Maarten Baas’ reinterpretation (2012) of the iconic Dior’s “Lady Dior” bag.

The Lady Dior handbag was created in 1995 and given by the première dame of France to Lady Diana, Princess of Wales. In 2010, Dior invited artists from all over the world to create their interpretation of this bag which were shown at the Milan Triennale as a tribute to this Dior icon.

“I thought it would be funny to copy such a fine, feminine and fashionable bag by recreating it using rough materials and techniques, such as welded steel and a plasma cutter.”
