A journey into the desert at Diane von Furstenberg. Prominent American designer Diane Von Furstenberg has taken us on a journey into the desert with exotic ideas from Egypt. Adding a new twist on her signature wrap dress with some exotic animal prints and vibrant colors that make a women want to pack their bags and take a safari into the desert this upcoming spring season. There was an enjoyable quantity of glamorous prints that were seen in a giraffe-print sarongs, tiger-print chiffon dress and a black zebra mini dress. A glitz was evident in the beaded embellishments on the stunning macramé, purses and bracelets. Being a style icon in America she has shown us with this collection that its always clever to see a gratifying mixture of prints and colors. Diane von Furstenberg has given us the signature “strong women” style that is adventurous and fun.
The show was held at the Bryant Park tents with a painted backdrop resembling the rock temples that were made for Pharaohs in Egypt during earlier times. The soundtrack for was a remixed version of Madonna’s hit single, Erotica. Opening the event was model Kendra Spears in a desert sand colored swimsuit with a bright animal print jacket paired with gold strapped sandals. The palette of colors in this collection were very exuberant with bright colors of gold, Nile green, orange and desert sand. There was plenty of exotic animal prints of zebra, tiger and giraffe. We saw sexy tiger prints in safari suits, shirtdresses with leopard prints and giraffe print sarongs. This collection was definitely perfect for the modern day Cleopatra.
The admired pieces in the collection were the signature Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses that came in a assortment of prints and vibrant colors. This signature piece is a timeless classic but done up this time in exuberant colors. The one shouldered leotard bathing suits were very appealing.
While the exotic animal prints were very alluring the blue floral chiffon dresses with an overdose of ruffles were a bid absurd. This piece felt out of place in this exotic voyage of a collection.
Diane von Furstenberg has injected a enjoyable dose of adventure in this exotic collection. She used her signature elements but mixing things up with an inspiration of travel and colors from Egypt. The Diane von Furstenberg women this next spring season is ready to be adventurous. -Brent Billiman, New York City, USA.
