GIVEAWAY: Celebrate Mother’s Day with Diane von Furstenberg!

Congratulations to our winner – Patti S., Schenectady, NY! Enjoy!!!


Who better to celebrate Mother’s Day with then devoted mother and grandmother Diane von Furstenberg? We asked DVF to choose her two favorite bags of the season to give to ONE lucky Bag Snob reader for Mother’s day and she came up with a couple of fabulous DVF bags that will take you from lunch to cocktails (and everything in between) seamlessly! What more could you ask for Mother’s Day?!

Bag 1: Stephanie Shoulder Bag ($875) in Denim Blue Knitted leather is the ultimate boho chic statement and loved by Hollywood’s A list celebs. Rock it with a pair of jeans or a little white dress at the Hamptons or St. Tropez– this is one hot summery bag you don’t want to miss out on! 17″ x 14″

Bag 2: Hayworth Clutch Embellished in Grey ($425) is a delicious evening clutch in light grey suede with embellished floral detail. Made of 100% Italian leather, 31cm x 18cm. I’m picturing moonlit walks on the beach with a slip of a dress, shoes in hand and this Hayworth clutch. I wish I could enter to win!

Huge thanks to Diane von Furstenberg for this generous giveaway! (Please leave DVF a comment and tell her when you fell in love with her designs!)

    Absolutely stunning. Thank you for an absolutely marvelous giveaway DVF!

  13. April 15, 2010 / 3:37 pm

    The clutch is kind of superficial, and in my oppinion floral designs are so out. But the Stephanie shoulder bag is very pretty, I could wear it everyday.

    I think I first fell in love when I bought my first wrap dress 3 years ago. It’s defnitely an “investment piece” and get a ton of compliments. I wish I could afford more, but for now- one dress & hopefully a DVF bag if I win!!

    What makes me love DVF so much is mainly her beautifully designed wrap dresses, it almost seem like they magically fit and hug your body and make you look like a goddess, I love them. However, this bags are not that bad either 😉

    DVF designs are just so classic, timeless and perfect.

    Her dresses are TDF, her bag line is drool worthy.

    She makes me fall in love with her line season after season.

    I remembering trying on a dress at a DVF store 2 years ago and for some misguided reason decided it wasn’t the right time to buy a dress. Unfortunate decision because I still dream about that dress all the time and have wished on many occasions that I had it to wear to an event…I love her beautiful designs!!

    I have loved DVF for as long as I can remember. I love that her clothes are timeless and never look dated. I can (and do) wear the wrap dress that I have owned for over a decade and people say how beautiful it is. I also admire that Diane is a constant champion of both women and the fashion industry (in which I work).

    My mom bought me my first Diane von Furstenberg dress for an interview, and ever since then I always find myself saving for her dresses!

    I first fell in love with DvF when I saw her Fall 2000 RTW collection. The dresses were flirty, yet sophisticated and real women could where them at any time of day. The prints that she used were phenomenal. Whether floral or abstract, the lovely prints were a welcome site to my eyes, that were hungary for something new, something a little different. I still remember a model that was wearing black dress pants, a black long-sleeved top with various colored diamond-shaped patterns with a pink sleeveless argyle sweater over the top … changed my life 🙂

    Wow, thanks for the trip down memory lane. I will forever be in love with DvF and her beautiful collections!!!
