DVF’s Current Project


The DVF design machine has been busier than usual as of late. First Diane von Furstenberg went mass—and pint-sized—with a print-heavy collection of designs for Gap Kids. Now she’s teamed with cult-favorite denim label Current/Elliott for a vibrant capsule collection (available now at that is East Coast sophisticate meets West Coast whimsy. The offerings include two pant styles (the Classic Skinny and the Relaxed Straight Leg), a skirt, and a pair of shorts—each of these come in a variety of DVF prints and colors—and of course, a wrap dress (in denim). To capture the essence of this cross-country partnership, Gia Coppola directed a short film. Starring newcomer Tracy Antonopoulos, Ray Liotta, and narration by Aubrey Plaza, the film, entitled Writer’s Block, is a well-conceived fashion fantasy. “I really wanted to do something different. I felt sort of tired of pretty fashion videos,” Coppola told While she references Martin Scorsese’s student films and his effective use of voiceover, the short is really a traveling tale of color, kitsch, and a stylish sensory experience. “I wanted to show the clothes in lots of different scenarios,” including, but not limited to, space, the jungle, the beach, and a horror movie. The end result is a perfect cinematic play on the print denim fits. See the full-length video for the very first time exclusively on, below.
