Fashion Week Notebook | Diane Von Furstenberg

September 12th, 2005

Key Takeaways: Diane von Furstenberg deftly combined colors and patterns in her flirty, pretty, and sometimes even preppy collection for Spring 2006. Geometric and botanical patterns were balanced in a set of well-styled outfits that ranged from black and white to tropical colored. Flirty sundresses, sportswear separates (loved her cardigan in green), and slinky evening dresses—DVF showed them all. We applaud this collection not only for its fresh feeling, but also for its wearability.

Color Palette: A number of looks were styled in black and white. Others combined tropical colors: Yellow, Brown, Coral, and Green. Some interesting color combinations: Coral + White, Coral + Green, Yellow + Brown.

Silhouettes: Full, swinging skirts and voluminous tulip skirt shapes; Trenchcoats; A-line and empire waist styles; Fitted bodices. Both draped and tailored looks.

Accessories Report: Printed tote bags worn under the arm.

What’s Wearable: Just about everything—especially the flirty sundresses.

What’s Not Wearable: Voluminous tulip skirt shapes on dresses, some of the more shapeless dresses (rather unflattering on anything other than a model’s figure).

Our Favorite Dress: We love how this dress elegantly bridges the gap between the embellishment of seasons past with the minimalism of fashions to come.
