Jason Wu Daphne Two-Tone Leather Shoulder Bag: Good-Time Girl

Jason Wu Daphne Two-Tone Leather Shoulder Bag

We already love one of Daphne, one of Jason Wu’s most famous styles – and have since she first made an appearance in Fall 2012. Now right in time for her first birthday, this cute scaled-down version amps up Daphne’s desirability, thanks to the addition of macramé detailing. Just three strips of a relaxed yet perfectly tailored weave is all a bag like this needs to gain fresh energy. And to imbue a ladylike silhouette with some funky edge.

A neutral palette of contrasting black and white, both of equally slick leather, makes for maximum versatility, and so do the adjustable straps, which quickly convert from shoulder to crossbody. This little frame-top isn’t going to hold much (and don’t expect it to expand), but it will likely be just the right size for a lingering lunch with your besties or an unexpected evening night out. And those times tend to be the very best times. On NET-A-PORTERicon for $1,995.

Pair with: A shoe that’s super-sophisticated and just a little bit dangerous, like Manolo Blahnik’s Evolu pump, featuring creamy suede and a multi-chain ankle strap. At Barneys New Yorkicon for $995.
