Diane von Furstenberg Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2011/2012
If you have a favorite color Diane von Furstenberg suggests you to wear a complete outfit in that shade. The 64-year old designer sent several full color outfits down the runway, with all items (even the boots, bags and bangles) in a different shade of the chosen color (green, red or blue).
She alternated those color(blocking) designs with eye catching graphic prints, which could be found on skirts, jumpsuits and dresses with low V-necks.
The collection, called American Legends, seemed Western inspired, judging from the brimmed hats, puffy sleeves, fringed boots and gauchos. Yet Diane’s Western Woman was glammed up a bit by metallic details (golden belts resembling the ones of Gucci’s spring/summer 2011 collection) , see through nettings, fur items and graphic cut-outs. (Especially the last three sequined evening gowns were full on glamour looks!)
If you dress by the code Less is More this DvF collection probably isn’t your cup of tea. But since there were a lot of different trends to choose from almost any woman should be able to find at least something she likes. (We have high hopes for the skirts and blouses!)
