Jason Wu’s “Diane” bag, designed by Diane Kruger, is finally out!
For its Spring Summer 2015 collection, designer Jason Wu created the “Diane” shoulder crossbody bag with his perennial muse, Diane Kruger. Like the style icon, the result is sophisticated and timelessly and utterly chic. Crafted from calf-leather, exotic python-skin and crocodile leather, and in a variety of colourways, with minimal light-gold hardware and a magnetic-fastening front flap, it has a twill-lined interior that’s perfectly sized to hold daily essentials.
“Jason asked me what the most important things were to me in a bag,” explained Kruger. “I said that I wanted to be able to wear it across the body and to be able to open and close it with one hand. I can’t stand having to put my bag down or use both hands to close it while running errands. I was hoping for a timeless and understated bag, one you notice because of its beautiful leather and simplicity. I think Jason delivered on all of those desires. It’s a bag for all ages and for every day – so chic.”
“I’ve always found Diane’s effortless sense of style so inspirational,” added Wu. “We actually started talking about collaborating on a bag together over dinner one day and, after a few emails and conversations, the Diane was born. To me, the bag is refined, feminine, and timeless – words that I would also use to define Diane.”
