How Jason Wu’s Diane Bag Got Its Name

A short list of the icons of fashion and style who’ve had a handbag named in their honor: Jane Birken, Brigitte Bardot, Alexa Chung, Jessica Stam, Greta Garbo, Grace Kelly, Princess Di, Lana Del Rey and …

German-born actress Diane Kruger.

Says Jason Wu of his good friend and the calfskin leather crossbody she inspired: “I’ve always found Diane’s effortless sense of style so inspirational. 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.”
