The Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2012 show, dubbed “Rendezvous” was all about the gloss and glamour of a DVF woman. Furstenberg and her right-hand man Yvan Mispelaere stayed true to the brand’s classic aesthetics in creating the collection.
Although a neutral, long-sleeved jersey dress with a spilling shoulder teased the audience to a possible all-neutral color palette, the collection held a refreshing punch of acid brights. Color-blocked ensembles lit up the catwalk, including a loose fuchsia top tucked into a bright yellow trouser. Amid the eye-popping hues, black and white ensembles were still as captivating. Such numbers yielded a cohesive contrast of urban sophistication to the collection.
There were also strokes of subtle seductiveness, evidenced by the number of plunging necklines, slits and mesh panels in the lineup. The duo added sultriness to a little black dress courtesy of a revealing centered mesh panel on the chest.
The brand is never without a printed dress. This season, however, they have infused a bit of quirkiness in splashing chains, commas and jigsaw puzzles onto some of the dresses. Perhaps one of the most eclectic prints to walk down the runway was that of a bunch of hands seemingly groping the model’s body.
Furstenberg ended the show on a high note, sending out bright and breezy dresses that personified the DVF woman through and through. With the Fall collection’s assembly of figure-hugging silhouettes, chic coats, day-to-night separates and billowy dresses, the DVF woman has a lot to be excited about once Fall arrives.
