First seen on the Fall/ Winter 2015 BOSS runway, the bag-in-bag concept mirrors the design language of the BOSS Womenswear ready-to-wear collection in its merging of softness and structure.
The BOSS models in New York carried what at first glance appeared to be one bag but was in fact two: the Luxury Staple tote held the framed Romy bag within. The easy elegance of the former perfectly complements the more architectural silhouette of the latter, offering multiple options for the modern woman’s wardrobe.
In his tenure as Artistic Director of BOSS Womenswear, Jason Wu has repeatedly played on the theme of contrasts. The balance between masculine and feminine, assertiveness and sensuality, angles and curves, has inspired his ready-to-wear collections and is now transferred to accessories.
Taking a structured bag grounded in the BOSS DNA – the Romy, first introduced in his Fall/Winter 2014 collection for the house – and combining it with a more relaxed tote – the Luxury Staple – creates a fresh new silhouette for 2015 that complements both tailored and off-duty looks perfectly.
Crafted in glossy calf hair and softly textured felt, the two bags are available in an understated color palette of black, pale gray and anthracite.
