Sometimes all a designer needs is an A-list celeb to be spotted carrying their bag before their name and designs are being seen, heard, and sought after. That is what is happening with designer Diane de Maria right now. After Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted toting the same hot pink bag, we tracked down the designer and bag, finding out it is the Diane de Maria Bonnie Bag.
Diane de Maria comes from an artistic background, as she is the great-granddaughter of famed painter Pierre de Maria. Her collection of bags infuses her artistic background with her travels, the passage of time, and reconciliation of the past and the future. Upon first glance the engraving in each design is hard to recognize, but upon closer inspection the geometric lines are clear.
The shape of the Bonnie Bag is similar to that of the Louis Vuitton Speedy. The handbag SJP is carrying is the Bonnie in the small size which is not available in stores yet as it is part of the Spring/Summer 2010 collection. Price is $1500. There are winter colors available in this bag at Beyond Seven, 601 West 27th Street, New York, NY 10001
Sarah Jessica Parker has clearly put Diane de Maria on the map and I am sure we will be hearing more of the designer in the future. More on Diane de Maria online HERE.
