Will Nicola Formichetti Bring More Men's Handbags to Diesel?

Screen-Shot-2013-01-04-at-2.41.54-PM.pngNow that Nicola Formichetti has been named Diesel's first Artistic Director, it's time to start daydreaming about all of the changes the former Creative Director at Thierry Mugler will bring to the Italian denim brand. While we have no idea whether Gaga or latex will pop up at Diesel under Formichetti's artistic direction, one area we can picture the designer beefing up is their selection of high-end man bags handbags for men.

We spoke to Formichetti not long ago at the launch of his unisex handbag for Mugler and Shopbop and he told us about becoming a handbag convert. "It's a total gamechanger," he said. "I never understood why girls had bags but after the demand from girlfriends [to create a Mugler bag], I'm obsessed. I don't have to carry a wallet anymore, I can hide everything inside it." He went on to tell us that "I think every man should wear a bag. It's not campy."

But just get the lingo straight -- you won't see any items listed as "man bags" at Diesel.

"I don't like the name 'man bags.' It's very [pejorative]. It's just handbag. It's unisex."
