Resort 2014: Diane von Furstenberg


Designer: Diane von Furstenberg

Inspiration: “….effortless, sexy, and on-the-go. If you can't put it in a little bag, it's not on-brand.”

Trends: DVF's iconic wrap dress makes a couple of appearances in this collection, most noticeably in a stylish snake print version. Accessorized with a contemporary pair of chunky ankle strap heels in a contrasting pattern, it's clear the designer's famous fashion piece makes for looks that truly transcend time. In addition to the wraparound, von Furstenberg's resort wear consists of multiple styles of above-the-knee jersey dresses, most with bold geometric prints, a couple with lace insets and detailing. Also shown were a series of cigarette style trousers and pencil skirts paired with silk blouses and tailored lapeled jackets, each look completed with a chic leather tote or clutch of some design.

Palette: python print in greys, blacks, and browns, black and white or off white graphics, kelly green, aqua blue, cobalt blue.

Who Should Wear It: working women, ladies in search of an outfit that brings them from the office to cocktails. Kate Middleton, Maria Menounos.
