Diane von Furstenberg Harper Small Tasseled Leather Shoulder Bag | Glamorous Colorblocked Bag

Posted on: Feb 23

Diane von Furstenberg Harper Small Tasseled Leather Shoulder BagDiane von Furstenberg is known for being able to achieve balance between boho and upper crust styles, but she isn't exactly known for being cutting edge. That is, however, exactly what I'd call the Harper: cutting edge. It contains some traditional design elements, but combines them in a way that is new and interesting.

Honestly, when I first looked at the Harper, I had trouble figuring out what exactly was going on on the bag. It has sort of a sculptural look, and the colorblocking creates an almost trompe l'oeil effect that is a bit disorienting. But von Furstenberg's combination of black, olive, and white leathers with a large amount of bright brushed gold hardware is disorienting in a modern art sort of way that I really like.

The geometric patchwork of the leather is interesting in its own right, but the softly rounded shape of the bag hems it in and makes it work. I love the over-sized clasp on the front. You can't even call it a clasp, really; it's more of a plate. The white leather tassel adds a little of that signature DVF boho appeal, but manages to meld well with the overall design.

I usually don't like bags with this much going on, but somehow it all comes together quite well on the Harper. I'd say that $425 is more than reasonable for an accessory that is sure to become a collector's item.
