Diane von Furstenberg offers the perfect description to solve our dilemmas related to the inspiration behind the latest collection. ‘Rendezvous’ was the actual title given to the outfit repertoire in order to illustrate the refinement and elegance of a modern woman. According to the designer, the Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2012 ready-to-wear collection is about the art of seduction. She asked during the preview of her new creations, “What is the difference between a rendezvous and a meeting?”
Creative director Yvan Mispelaere also shared his opinion about the aim of this glam apparel parade, “With this collection we wanted to work around the body in a different way, and play with wrapping fabrics about the body.” Wrapped dresses sculpted in a surrealist and modern way cover the curvy and sex-appeal-packed silhouette of models. Draped textures and fun prints all contribute to the image of a girl “who has a beautiful, beautiful dress, with a big coat on top. She goes to meet someone, and she pulls off the coat,” as Diane von Furstenberg revealed.
The modern DVF girl is aware of her seductive skills and uses her wardrobe to stand out from the crowd. The color palette emanates grown-up glamor. Shades like bordeaux, red, chartreuse and raspberry all guarantee the versatility of the collection. Must have outfit elements considered by the DVF atelier include the oh-so-stylish and flattering pencil skirt, jersey dresses and boucle coats.
The prints and patterns like the interlocking hands, jigsaw pieces, chains and other abstract items aim to launch a real craze and innovate the use of decorative elements to glam up feminine and sophisticated outfits. It is always a pleasure to see designers rely on their talent to revolutionize design techniques and come up with brand new ideas to contribute to the evolution of the fashion industry.
The Furstenberg- Mispelaere team will definitely grant us with other attention-grabbing and groundbreaking style hints we can also embed into our signature looks. Feast your eyes on these impressive ensembles which promote the lady-like fashion trend on a large scale.
