Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2016 – Runway Review
February 15, 2016
Trading her typical runway show for a series of real-life vignettes, the DVF show was a riot of parodies, a sideshow of fashion-cum-party rooms starring some of the world’s top models. The show sought to draw guests into a more intimate, close-up feeling with the clothes; they were arranged as “Movement,” “Fencing,” two workspaces and one dressing room. The “Love Power” collection was disco friendly to say the least. But beyond the dance-friendly dresses (Karlie Kloss in a gold sequin long wrap dress, anyone?), the daytime pieces were layered and lovely: a men’s bow-front blouse with a tweed skirt; a silk blouse and matching silk pants. And in typical DVF form, explosions of color and print. It was invigorating.
