New York Fashion Week, Spring 2008: Diane von Furstenberg
Diane von Furstenberg has a new direction for Spring: step away from her iconic wrap dresses and embrace flowing, colorful ones. Though a few safari-style wrap dresses crept onto the catwalk (it wouldn't be DVF without it), most pieces were loose maxi frocks and tee shirt dresses in bright and bold colors. There were some vintage-inspired skirt suits and voluminous tunics in amazing tropical prints. Fun!
A good mix of prints and solids came up, the former being geometric but not square. A couple of ombre dresses were shown in colors that resembled rainbow sherbet ice cream...quite delectable! Surprisingly, though flowy dresses dominated, the overall look was not super feminine. Cuban-style fedoras and funky prints gave the collection an air of masculinity that we've all been craving lately.
