If you know anything about Diane Von Furstenberg, you know the lady does not skimp on print. She certainly kept to this tradition for Pre-Fall.
Inspired by murano glasses and skyscrapers, the designer manifests Venice and New York influences with curvy, colorful stripes alongside monochrome geometric patterns. They mingle to create a sort of patchwork effect on everything from zipper moto jackets to her signature wrap dresses, which will celebrate its 40th anniversary next year.
Silhouettes remain feminine (flirty flared skirts on dresses look perfect for twirling,) yet modest. There are a few maxi dresses in need of a plunging neckline, back, or slit to allow a flash of thigh– a little bit of skin might have been nice.
This isn’t my favorite offering from DVF, but there are savory morsels here and there. That neutral printed halter maxidress could be rather becoming on Vanessa Hudgens. But given the label’s popularity, I’m sure they will have no trouble getting these pieces off shelves.
