Besides being the president of the CFDA, Diane von Furstenberg succeeds also in building up her own fashion realm. Throughout the years we had the chance to witness the rise of the DVF label which celebrates the image of a seductive and sensual woman. The Diane von Furstenberg fall 2012 handbag collection emanates a playful yet refined femininity. According to the designer, the autumn fashion show was “about seduction”.
Together with her assistant Yvan Mispelaere, Diane von Furstenberg is aware of the ever changing style needs of fashionistas. Therefore, the sight-pampering color combo ideas together with the use of joyful and cartoonish elements were welcomed with open arms by ‘it’ girls of the moment. Loud and proud shades hand in hand with the most refined neutral tones trapped the audience into an amazing fall reverie. The highly-acclaimed designer revealed about the modern DVF girl that “The night is young; she is timeless.”
The past season’s collections didn’t offer similar importance to busy prints. However, innovation for the DVF lies in the use of revolutionary and attention-grabbing details never used with such flirty refinement before. Puzzle pieces, chains and domino are the elements meant to add a youthful vibe to these high-street bag designs. Surrealism gave a unique and prophetic vibe to the complete collection. Bag-aholics who are intrigued by original and artsy clutches and shoulder-bags have the opportunity to embed some of these A-list DVF style creations into their wardrobe.
Moreover, we could also detect a fondness for the oh-so-widely-used color-blocking trend. However, in the case of the latest DVF collection we have a more intriguing color palette which results in a set of amazing chromatic compositions. Parisian chic elements were also used to add a neat and sophisticated silhouette to gorgeous handbags adorned with refined faux fur and chain handles. According to DVF, the signature clothing style in which you can easily incorporate these bag designs is “effortless and elaborate”. Colors like lime green, aubergine, bright blue and dark tones guarantee the versatility of the handbag collection for fall.
