Diane von Furstenburg

Autumn 11

The look Signature bold print dresses were shown alongside elegant evening gowns and contemporary daywear options.

Key pieces An ace of spades print was employed on loose-fit shirt dresses in a classic combination of tan and black. Thick black, red and gold diagonal stripes ran down a bias-cut dress, and a classic wool red coat had a timeless appeal. Metallic panelling was successfully twinned with peppermint green silk on a top, but a one-sleeved sheer snakeskin-print kaftan had too many design elements.

Commercial appeal The different themes jostling for the limelight made for a disjointed collection. As standalone pieces each was accomplished but the presentation did not feel cohesive. Evening dresses were particularly elegant and outerwear was strong. Metallics added a fresh dimension.
