Kate Bosworth and the Alexander Wang Diego Bucket Bag


Kate Bosworth is one of my favorite celebrity style trendsetters. Much like Rachel Bilson and Diane Kruger, Bosworth is just as comfortable in couture as she is in casual chic clothing. Her handbag collection (which we've discussed here before) is comprised of classic pieces with an edge, but I'm not certain the Alexander Wang Diego Bucket Bag she toted at the start of NY Fashion Week fits that description.

Kate's bag is a straight-forward bucket silhouette (not the most attractive or practical style ever invented) and features Wang's signature stud detailing along the drawstring top and, of course, throughout the bottom of the bag. The bag comes with a single top handle as well as a longer shoulder strap so it does offer some versatility. However, from a purely aesthetics perspective, the 'Diego' is flawed. The drawstring closure is not threaded along the entire circumference of the bag. The results of this design choice is a slightly lop-sided bag, and who wants that? Apparently, Kate Bosworth does. This is a rare handbag miss for the actress. Her beige suede Diego Bucket Bag is an even worse choice when paired with her black and blue outfit. She would've fared better with the black textured leather version available at net-a-porter.com for $825, and so will you if you like this design as much as Kate does.

Love her skirt so! And the jacket is exquisite as well...
Great spotting on the drawstring of the bag ~ how odd!

Gorgeous post, darling!

Definitely an odd choice from a design standpoint. I'm not sure what Wang was trying to accomplish here, but what can we expect from a man who makes clutches that resemble footballs and pyramids!
