Diane von Furstenberg has always modeled her customer after herself: an independent woman who has the confidence to run the world yet remains an adventurous bohemian at heart. Sophistication and rebellion abound in her carefree life, as do wildly lively prints, glimmering pearls and sequins, and caftans and jumpsuits, billowed, knotted, and draped with perfect irreverence. But this girl on the go wouldn’t be able to tread far (whether she’s exploring Marrakesh or darting around her home city) without a good bag. Or a vast collection of them.
As a busy woman herself, Furstenberg always sees the big picture: you need a bag, not only to complete the outfit, but to live your life! And she didn’t disappoint this snob; there was hardly a model without a bag in her right hand. From angular, wrist-strapped boxes to evening clutches adorned in 3D pearls to the softly structured Franco hobo
in multiple fabrications, including lighthearted patterns and shimmering sequins, to colorblocked leather satchels: there’s a bag for every moment and occasion. Some were studded, others bejewled (though never overtly girly or gaudy), and others took on a kaleidoscopic effect. The palette – shades of peach, coral, Caribbean blue, ivory, teal – and the sizes, ranging from the itty-bitty to the big and roomy – are made to satisfy the girl who changes her outfit as often as her changes her mind. And that’s pretty frequently.
