The 10th anniversary of September 11th inspired Diane von Furstenberg to entitle her Spring 2012 collection, ‘Beginning’. Outfits and accessories drenched in bright and beautiful shades offered the fashion armada a revitalizing and cathartic experience.
The beloved fashion godmother revealed to New York Magazine that, the “how is about the dawn, it’s about hope, it’s about life. It started with Africa, but there’s very little Africa left — it’s just the inspiration. But the hope, the hope! I’m promoting hope.”
Optimism was the ultimate buzzword used to create the perfect atmosphere for the presentation of the ensemble parade created for the blooming season. The Diane Von Furstenberg Spring 2012 handbags follow the classy design patterns elaborated by the hip style guru. Using neon and catchy shades was the secret solution to breathe life into these lady-like and suit-all clutches and handbags.
The most impressive accessory trend represented by box clutches was popularized in this show. Bag lovers had the chance to spot a selection of high class accessories including oversized bags, backpacks along with medium sized clutches complemented with a fabulous strap and other sophisticated details. The color palette contributed to the extremely wearable quality of these wardrobe staples. Dove greys, white and lilacs were only some of the most prominent hues used to mark the beginning of a new style era. Diane von Furstenberg together with creative director Yvan Mispelaere decided to inject urbane glamor into the complete collection with a few bright colors like cobalt and emerald.
The muses behind the warm season apparel parade were the 60s eclectic style trends along with African cultural elements. Real fashionistas who want to take full advantage of this seductive accessory selection will have the opportunity to crown their chic outfits with ultra-modern clutches and shoulder bags with a long top flap which is the jewelry piece and ultimate innovation of the collection.
