The peripatetic Diane von Furstenberg never stays in one place, or one decade, too long. For spring, she flirted with flappers, but her fall collection was dedicated to a less era-specific icon: the glamazon (which also happens to be the name of the newest addition to her growing beauty line).
This modern-day huntress gathers her fashion as she pleases; not for her a dull adherence to one style or another. The collection, designed as always by von Furstenberg and Nathan Jenden, drew heavily from the English hunting lodge, with its tweeds and tartansalthough it’s doubtful anyone ever rode to the hounds in one of von Furstenberg’s skintight cuts, curvy jackets, or eye-dazzling color combinations. The designers called on Camelot as well, with touches of medieval battle armor: a metallic knit tunic with an attached hood, a dark-gray snakeskin leather jacket, a jangly spangled beaded tabard worn over a wool jersey top and leggings. There’s so much going on that it can be hard to follow von Furstenberg’s lead, but there’s no doubt she enjoys the sport of it all.
