I am pleased to announce an amazing giveaway, as powered by LUISAVIAROMA. (* Please kindly find update as of Thursday 13th October, 2011 at 10:51am (GMT) in the About section of the giveaway.)
For 80 years, LUISAVIAROMA has been renowned as a luxury retailer. Both it’s bricks and mortar three level store and online destination, LUISAVIAROMA.COM have made their mark by combining second to none premiere retail (offering 100 of the best high fashion designer collections) with innovative technology.
As a result of this, I am pleased to be partnering with the luxury retailer to offer one reader the chance to win an Alexander Wang Diego bag.
Sponsored by LUISAVIAROMA, the bag is as pictured above. Alexander Wang has become known as the king of cool. The young CDFA award winning designer has made a strong name for himself with his effortless downtown New York aesthetic. There is an edge and cool that lends an approachable air to his well tailored designs.
His designs have been hailed as reminiscent of the 90′s and are championed by everyone from actresses like Zoe Kravitz to models such as Erin Wasson.
The Diego bag is at once timeless and of the present moment. The bucket shape harks back to the 90′s (perhaps even as far back as the 70′s) with an element to it that would render it still relevant in ten years.
The hardware in the form of studs at base of bag is a clever touch, it adds a streetwise mood to the design without being too loud. The double strap feature allows for versatility. This bag is a great example of how Wang takes something luxurious and makes it approachable.
LUISAVIAROMA are very generously given you the chance to win this bag that retails at £716.02.
* Important update as of Thursday 13th October, 2011 at 10:51am (GMT)
I have just found out that the Alexander Wang Diego bag has now got a newer, more current season version in black as opposed to the tan as pictured above.
I have decided to change the giveaway prize to the new season, black version. I do not want to give my readers an older option of a design, when a more current season of the same piece is now available for purchase.
I would prefer to give my readers, a chance to win, the most relevant option available on the market, on any giveaway.
The black update on the tan Alexander Wang Diego bag is exactly the same as its predecessor (the older season tan version).
They are exactly the same in design, function and form. The only difference is the black is from the most current season as opposed to the tan. The black is more expensive than the tan bag. The tan bag retailed for £716.32 and the black is £817.32.
Please kindly find link to the new season Alexander Wang Diego bag as below.
