Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2014
The motto at Diane Von Furstenberg Spring '14: "be your own oasis" — if you're wondering what it means, show-closer Naomi Campbell could fill you in. The supermodel's fierce walk said it all, that was all about empowerment. Not surprisingly, that's the takeaway from Von Furstenberg's latest, where the clothes are modern, a little flirty, and all about the woman. She gives us clothes that make us smile and feel like girls — and yes, Diane has crop tops in store for Spring, too — but also full skirts, bright Aztec blues and chilli pepper reds, animal prints, and a new iteration of the wrap dress that's crafted with lace insets. It's clear that she has fun and wants her customer to as well — and that's not just evident in the designer's dance down the runway following the show. She reminds us in every built-to-flatter dress, pair of shimmering gold shorts, and made-for-vacation maxi that we're women. Sometimes we're ladylike, sometimes we're daring — and when we're sitting in a packed house at a DVF fashion show listening to "Blurred Lines" and watching Naomi Campbell, we just want to dance.
