I didn't see a thread, or really any pictures here for the new Dior Caro bag! I did purchase in the shearling, and plan on getting a couple more when the rest of Cruise arrives. I was looking for something quintessentially Dior (cannage preferred), but without the loud, noticeable logo, and a bit more user friendly than the Lady Dior. And this is it! The adjustable strap is long enough for crossbody, and the back slip pocket is perfect access for a phone. This is the medium size, which fits about the same as a Chanel reissue 226/ maybe jumbo. It also comes in small.

The caro looked too busy for me in the first promo pics but there are videos on yt now and it looks much nicer "in motion". Can‘t wait to see comparisons with the Chanel 19

I'm curious about the longevity of this design, I'm still bummed that diorama was discontinued as it is with lady dior, the most beautiful dior bag in my opinion. I feel like this design replaces the diorama in a way... The shearling one is my favorite though!
It is difficult to assess the longevity of any Dior bag save for the Lady Dior, and now the Saddle given that it was a reissue from before. However, I will add that it has Cannage quilting and CD hardware with a timeless shape. Can't get more classic than that. Even older Miss Dior flap bags still look current to people who recognize the Dior aesthetic. It is a classic quilted leather bag, done in Dior style, after all.

I've just seen the video of this bag on YouTube and it works amazing!! I don't have any dior as yet, but I think this may be my first purchase. If anyone has any modelling pics, please upload them!!
I will receive my first 2 tomorrow (other than the shearling I posted in November). For me, this bag solves a bunch of issues I have with other Dior bags - LD is too fussy and clanky, diorama is too small & no back pocket, 30M is too small, saddle is too strange & difficult, book tote is too bulky, bobby is too generic. This one is classic (cannage quilting), long crossbody chain that can double or be removed, back pocket, versatile day to evening, plenty of room for the larger size, lined in leather, turnlock is super easy and functional, & no loud "CHRISTIAN DIOR" logo. I've been waiting for these for about 6 months. I hope I love them too!

Please post some photos of your bags when they arrive - I'd love to see them!! There are very few 'real life' photos of this style online.

The video I posted above has totally sold me...I love seeing all the workmanship that goes into these bags. Makes me feel not quite as guilty at dropping £3k to buy one!
