Which medium Lady Dior handbag should you buy? Detailed comparison on material, design and price



Hello, everyone! Today, I’m going to review three beautiful medium sized Lady Dior handbags. If you are thinking of buying a medium sized Lady Dior but not sure how to choose, among the different leather and styles, you are in the right place. 


I’m going to discuss the material, design, color, and resale price. If you like my article, please leave a comment below. 

Material Comparison

Each material has its pros and cons.

The classic Lambskin Leather:

The lambskin leather Lady Dior handbag is known for its luxurious feel and elegant appearance. It has a beautiful shin, and some of very new models even have a pearly lustre. However, it's important to note that this material is more delicate and requires extra care. The corners and edges are prone to scuffing, and over time, the bag may lose its shape. The bottom may start to give in slightly, and the sides could become softer. Sometimes even bulge a little.

Patent Leather:

Moving on to the patent leather Lady Dior handbag. This material offers a more structured and rigid feel. It holds its shape better compared to lambskin leather. Its shiny appearance may or may not appeal to certain people. Red is my favorite color, and I personally prefer the red in Patent leather than the lambskin because it is such a statement when you walk in the room with this striking red bag on your arm.

However, there are some drawbacks to consider. Patent leather, especially in light colors, tends to undergo color changes due to oxidation. Additionally, over time, it can become slightly sticky to feel and may chip if not handled with care.

I also have a tweed material Lady Dior that’s being repaired at the moment, once I have it back, I will include it in.

Lambskin Leather with Shiny Finish:

Our third option is the gunmetal grey special edition Lady Dior handbag. It features a unique combination of lambskin leather with a shiny finish, which adds a contemporary touch to this classic design. This pearlescent texture is sometimes used in the newer model.



Moving on to design, two of our Lady Dior handbags are classic styles that are always available in store, while the third one is a special edition created in collaboration with an artist.

Classic Lady Dior:

The pink lambskin leather Lady Dior bag represents the timeless elegance that Dior is known for. Its iconic Cannage stitching and signature charms make it a true fashion staple. This classic design is always in style and perfect for those who appreciate a timeless look.

Special Edition Collaboration:

On the other hand, we have the special edition Lady Dior handbag in gunmetal grey. This particular design is a collaboration with an artist, making it a unique collector's item. It showcases an artistic twist while still maintaining the iconic Lady Dior structure. If you're looking for something that stands out, something that not everybody has, and sparks conversations, this one might be the perfect choice for you.

Color Variation

The color you choose can greatly influence the overall look and versatility of your Lady Dior. Lady Dior comes in a vast range of colors. The most classic ones black, grey, light pink and red. They are always on sale in Dior flagship store, although the depth and tone of the colors could vary season by season.

If you are looking for something that will never go out of style and can always fetch a good price in the resale market, or if it’s your first Lady Dior, go for the black, grey and light pink.

But if you always own one of the classic colors or you don’t mind the resale price, go for the color you like. Because ultimately choosing a favorite color would result in you getting more wear out of it, and the cost per use is much lower.

When considering the color options for your Lady Dior handbag, keep in mind that lighter colors can be prone to color transfers, especially from items like jeans. It's important to take precautions to avoid any potential discoloration.


Now, let's talk about the price points for each of these handbags. It's essential to

consider your budget when making a decision.

Lambskin Leather:

The classic lambskin leather Lady Dior handbag is the most expensive option. A secondhand leather lady dior will sell for between $2000 to $3000 depending on the condition and color. It is expensive due to its timeless appeal and popularity. This also means that its resale value remains high. You can expect to sell it for a good price on the secondhand market later on. If you want to know more about what factors influence the price, I have another video decoding the Lady Dior pricing on second hand market.

Patent Leather:

The patent leather medium sized Lady Dior handbag is slightly more affordable, usually at least 10-20% less than the leather version.

Special Edition:

Interestingly, despite that a brand new special edition Lady Dior being the most expensive at the retail level. It can cost less than the classic versions. Remember the price reflects the dynamics of supply and demand. Its uniqueness makes it special, but is also its downfall. It appeals to a smaller group of people. That means either it may take longer to sell at a good price or require a lower price to attract buyers. That may be good news to some of you, making it a potentially more affordable option for those interested in this unique collaboration piece.


To choose the perfect Lady Dior handbag that suits your needs, consider your personal style, preferred material, desired color, and budget, and potential retail value. Each of these factors will guide you towards the handbag that will bring you the most joy and satisfaction.

In addition, as a reseller, I can tell you that don’t worry too much about the wear and tear of the bag, because you can always get it restored to a near-new condition which is what I love so much about Lady Dior. It lasts you a lifetime.

Thank you for reading, and let us know in the comments which Lady Dior handbag appeals to you the most. Stay stylish!
