fall collections, new york: diane von furstenburg

by Jeremy Danté

a wide array of prints in a multitude of colors were seen on the runway for the FW11 DVF collection. relaxed dresses were seen with a transfixing mix of patterns. this season, i had gone into reviewing this collection expecting something young & fresh- along the lines of what we had seen for the past two seasons & i was a bit disappointed. i admire that many of the diane von furstenburg style signatures were represented but my expectation of the set was not met. i feel like many of the elements the were introduced this season have been seen by many other labels last season; i dont feel any real sense of new. in fashion, i really look for how design can affect- how is it moving you, how is style being reinterpreted, how is it being reinvented. karmen pedaru, joan smalls, tao okamoto & anais mali were spotted amongst this season’s cast but this set was a miss for me.
