Diane von Furstenberg

Autumn 12

Print and colour dominated DVF’s seductive autumn 12 collection, with billowy coats enveloping figure-hugging dresses. Some patterns worked better than others, but overall it was the vibrancy of the prints and tones that made for an attention-grabbing show. But this was no crass clash of colour – each time a scarlet red or chartreuse featured, it was used with a sophistication and deftness that enhanced the allure rather than negating it.

This was the case no matter how high, low or asymmetric Von Furstenberg’s necklines were, as rollneck knits sat comfortably alongside strapless dresses while a fluid femininity and glamour made for covetable pieces, particularly the coats. It was a classy execution of her ideas and one that should do well sitting alongside some of the safer, more sober offerings from other New York brands.
