This bag is soooo old news. However, The Dior Samourai 1947 handbag is still one of my favorites even though Dior has probably gone on to market bigger and better pieces. This handmade gem by Dior is nothing less than a work of art. The handbag comes in a variety of colors, but I like black. Why Dior has chosen to call the bag “Samourai 1947″ is still a bit of a mystery to me. I, of course, went to Wikipedia to look at the Samurai dress to see if there is any similarities in the construction, and it is reminiscent of the Samurai outfit, but there must be a deeper meaning beyond me. I think, more likely, the bags name derives from the famous French Noir film Le Samourai. And if you know what this meaning is and really want this bag, then run over to Neiman Marcus and purchase this for a mere $3,900.
