DVF Throws a Fashionable Fête for Fall/Winter 2016

Diane von Furstenberg is all about the American hustle. Exhibit one: her rags to riches story. You know, the one where she arrived to New York with nothing but a suitcase full of her infamous jersey dresses in pursuit of the American dream and constructed a billion-dollar fashion empire from the ground up. And more recently, exhibit two: her Fall/Winter 2014 collection wherein she channels the plunging 70s-inspired necklines of the Golden Globe-winning film by the same name. Do the hustle, indeed.

Ms. von Furstenberg proves once again that she is the poster woman for the phrase: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” expertly reinventing her iconic silhouette for her latest collection. Youthful fans of the brands will happily engage with styles and patterns that their mothers undoubtedly wore thirty years ago – gold wrap dresses, jewel-embellished tunics, star-and-moon designs. The mix and match of patterns managed to keep the collection feeling fresh, and steered clear of making it feel as if DVF had simply opened a time capsule of her own designs. A noteworthy appearance by Karen Elson at the start of the show and a shower of gold confetti during the final walk kept things just as Ms. von Furstenberg likes them: predictably unpredictable.
