Fittingly, Diane von Furstenberg showed her Spring 2010 collection today, as the sun broke through the previous days' persistent drizzle- the perennially wearable and exciting designer took bohemian flower children on a bright and beautiful safari.
DVF, who herself looked smashing in a screenprinted beach sunset skirt, churned out yet another bevy of pretty dresses. With hues ranging from burnt to brilliant in every color of the rainbow, with wild gold and leopard print neutrals. Patterns continued their reign on spring clothes, in this case splattering daisies and tribal motifs across flowing maxi dresses and and short cocktail frocks alike. We loved a particularly stunning tiered shift dripping with fluttering gold disks and bronze piping; and from our past experience with DVF's impeccable sixth sense to make clothes that fit nearly all women, the collection's simpler front-knotted draped dresses (in black and lemon yellow) presented wardrobe-staple potential.
Diane von Furstenberg has endured as a relevant designer because they're beautiful, and they work - may not seem revolutionary, but after four decades, still consistently relevant.
