What Is the Diesel 1DR Bag?

For starters, Diesel itself is an Italian retail brand founded in the late 1970s by Renzo Rosso. Why name a fashion brand after an alternative fuel for cars, you ask? Well, Renzo saw it as a way to represent the "alternative" take Diesel has on our usual closet staplesjeans, cargo pants, leather jackets, you name it. There's a certain edginess apparent with his creations that strikes the fancy of any streetwear-savvy stylista.

In October 2020, Glenn Martenswho's had experience working for Y/Project and Jean Paul Gaultiergot on board as creative director. One of the major moves he's done for the brand was launching the 1DR Shoulder Bag, which aimed to showcase Diesel's thrust of bold, genderless, and ultimately, fun fashion. A palpable Y2K-esque flair emanates from the leather pieces, making it a worthy addition to anyone's 2023 bag rotation.

Which Local Celebs and Influencers Have Worn the Diesel 1DR Bag?

Here to make compelling cases for the 1DR's "it" status are a slew of our beloved celebs and influencers. It's been made evident that it can totally amp up anyone's casual looks; heck, even a sweater and sweatpants combo could go from loungewear to streetwear with this bag as an arm candy!
