Just like many other brands in the luxury market, Dior has increased their prices, so we are going to tell you everything you need to know about the Dior price increase in 2022.
Christian Dior is a historic French fashion house, known for exquisite men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections and beautiful accessories and leather goods. Dior has become one of the top luxury brands, alongside other French brands such as Chanel and Saint Laurent since its founding in 1946.
Over the years, many incredible designers have held the position of creative director at the house of Dior, including Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano, Raf Simons, Hedi Slimane, and currently Maria Grazia Chiuri for the women’s collection and Kim Jones for menswear. All these designers have ensured Dior continues to create beautiful collections that are highly desired.
However, there have been recent price increases at Dior that have affected many of their accessories, especially the bags. So, this article is going to let you know all the important information about these price hikes so all you handbag lovers know exactly which bag to buy next!
Dior Price increase 2022
There are several best-selling classic bags that have undergone a price increase in the last year, but there are so many different styles that have remained at the same price.
It is likely that the most popular bags have increased in price while the less popular bags have stayed at the same price point because there are fewer people buying these handbags. So, it should come as no surprise that the popular Lady Dior bags have seen the most dramatic price hike.

Why Has There Been a price increase?
Just like Louis Vuitton bags and Chanel bags, there are many reasons why Dior bags have increased in price. Firstly, luxury brands often undertake price adjustments to keep in line with global inflation so there is always going to be a price increase coming in the future.
There have also been increases in the cost of raw materials, production costs, and transportation costs that have meant that these iconic bags have increased in price more than usual.
The Dior price hike was actually pretty limited, the Chanel price increase affected almost all of their bags, with the classic Chanel flap bag and the Chanel boy bag seeing increases of around 13%. These price increases have also affected the resale price of Dior bags – since the bags when they are new are more expensive, the resale price tag is now more expensive too.
So buying a Dior bag now is a good investment as the prices are only going to go up even further!
Best-selling Dior bags
Here are some of the best-selling Dior bags you really need to get your hands on before any more price increases. Each bag is available on both the Dior site and on the resale site, Fashionphile so you can find the best option to suit your budget.
1. The Lady Dior bag
The Lady Dior bag is a classic, timeless handbag from the house of Dior and was a particular favorite of Princess Diana!
The beautiful silhouette with the boxy bag and structured top handles has been made in many different materials and prints over the years, but we love the textured finish of this Gray Cannage Embroidery.
Each Lady Dior bag also comes with a detachable long shoulder strap so you have different styling options, and each is finished with gleaming gold hardware – just gorgeous! The interior is fitted with a zipper pocket so the bag can hold all your everyday essentials.
2. the Dior Caro bag
We love the modern edge of the Dior Caro bag, in black calfskin leather, quilted in the Macrocannage pattern. The front flap is secured with a ruthenium CD twist clasp, which opens to allow easy access to the spacious interior, fitted with a zipper and patch pocket.
The bag comes with a detachable and adjustable chain link strap, finished with a military-inspired Christian Dior engraved buckle, that can be worn across the body or on the shoulder.
3. The Dior book tote
A structured tote bag is such a versatile bag to own in your luxury bag collection, perfect for work and weekends alike – and this Dior Book Tote is the perfect stylish option.
The Book Tote has become a cult classic and is now available in multiple different prints and colors, such as this Blue Oblique Embroidery print.
The front of the bag is also printed with the Christian Dior brand name for a super fashionable logo mania finish. The tote is fitted with looping top handles, while the open top allows easy access to the roomy interior.
