Diane Kruger has turned her hand to design for the first time, creating a handbag in collaboration with Jason Wu. And, considering her impeccable style sense and recurring appearance in Best Dressed round-ups, it comes as little surprise to discover that the bag is utterly chic.
“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.”
Named simply the Diane Bag, the style comes in calf-leather, exotic python-skin and crocodile, and in a variety of colourways. The addition of light gold hardware adds a slightly utilitarian edge, says Harper’s Bazaar.
“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.”
