Couture Monday: have a picnic with Dior

Just in time for summer, Dior gives us a lovely bronzer featuring a woven pattern.  At first it reminded me of a straw picnic basket.

However, knowing Dior, I knew it was probably a pattern that had appeared on one of their bags.  Sure enough, the Lady Dior Avenue bag has this weaving not in straw, but in delectable soft leather:

As far as I can tell this bag was first released in 2008 and I'm not sure whether any others in different colors have been released this year.   So it seems a little odd Dior would choose now to introduce this pattern on a makeup item.  Still, I like that they put a pattern other than their usual cannard on this bronzer.  Nothing earth-shattering but a subtle change of pace.  :)
