Mark my words: this is the shoulder bag of the season! Meet the Diane by Jason Wu, a bag that’s every part as feminine and beautiful as its namesake, the preternaturally stylish Diane Kruger. Like muse, like designs! Jason Wu’s bags possess the same level of polish as his ready-to-wear and each season, his bags get better. They simultaneously give nods to current trends and timeless elegance, and the Diane is no exception, to say the least.
Seventies-inspired style is the strongest trend of the moment, and with sleek lines, a clean finish, and Jason’s signature cylindrical hardware, this instant-it bag pays homage without putting us in a time warp. All the colors are appealing in their own right – choose between taupe, tan, or cherry red leather – but, of course, midnight blue-on-black python is crazy-irresistible. Naturally, pair whichever color and texture you choose with your new bellbottoms and sky-high platforms. Or turn up the heat and match it against a slinky silk dress, à la Studio 54. Jason Wu Diane available in taupe, tan, and cherry red leather, $1,965, and python, $2,725, at Jason Wu.
