Diane von Furstenberg
September 11, 2010 New York
Tailoring, however, was the collection's strong suit. Highlights came in the form of a navy pantsuit shown with a lemon yellow shirt and a sky blue belt; a rust silk blouse matched with turquoise pants and a blush pink belt; a loose-fitting coral top teamed with a violet knee-length skirt. Draping entered the picture via a flowing white caftan slung loosely with a thin gold belt, and sleeveless hooded jumpsuits that wouldn't make bad cover-ups on a sailing trip through the Greek Islands. One came in purple silk, another aswirl with peach, marigold, white, and black.
The sense of sophistication carried through to the accessories and styling. For starters, you didn't see any of the distracting floral headdresses trailing ribbons that you did a season or two ago. Bags, for the most part, hewed to the smaller and more streamlined.
Von Furstenberg raised her hands in the air for their victory lap. She seemed justifiably pleased with the results of their new partnership.
