If you’re a fan of the classic Lady Dior, get ready to meet her minimalist sister: Diorissimo, a modern update with traditional undertones. Launched this year, the handbag by Dior boasts streamlined styling, with top handles inspired by the Lady Dior, while those beloved charms take on more rounded proportions. A detachable pochette inside can store small items or be used as a quick clutch. Offered in more than 10 color and fabric combinations, each Diorissimo takes two days to complete, with two pieces of contrasting leather stitched together and then turned inside out to create its distinctive texture. We’re enamored with the tweed patchwork Diorissimo for classic summer style. The raw, organic-inspired fabric offsets the structural style, adding an earthy ease. Paired with black crocodile trimmings, Diorissimo is très chic. Dior ($9,200). Copley Place, 617-927-7577.
