DIANE VON FURSTENBERG – AUTUMN/WINTER 2014
“A glamorous vagabond…she’s on the run with her dreams and colors !” - Diane von Furstenberg
A painter, a poet, a dancer, she is a free spirit floating towards the intersection of everything. In dancing skirts and the ballerina sweaters from which the wrap was born, she is full of hope for what the night will bring.
From the East, she rises with the sun wrapped in golden love knots. In a cocoon of cloud wave jacquard, she emerges in black and white with a burst of poppy red. She dreams in rich jewel tones like bright iris with swirls of firebird sienna, in flowing crepe and shimmering velvet.
She slips a shirt dress over soft pants, layering for her journey with a chic nonchalance and a devil-may-care approach to print; bold and wild and mixed to perfection, her Runaway bag flying behind her as she catches a train.
By morning, her eyes will open to the West, to the curtain call of Ballets Russes, a moveable feast of fashion and music. Here, a rose print grows under the moonlight, while a corset tames a flowing chiffon blouse. A metallic wedge shines on a black mesh sandal. Chic mini dresses take their places over flowing pants. A celestial print pops on cobalt blue.
The curtain opens to a bouquet of golden wraps, a gilded celebration of the silhouette that started it all. She is statuesque and free. Cue the Bohemian Wrapsody.
