Our fairy godmother showed her resort collection in Florence and Fashion Week Daily sums it up:
"Inspired by the concept of a mini suitcase, von Furstenberg presented looks that were packable, luxurious and ideal for travel. Stripes, keys, flags and other international influences form the basis for prints while colorful scarves are reconfigured into flowy frocks. With a polished aesthetic, whimsical sundresses and crisp trenches served as key silhouettes. Retro swimwear was straight from the Riviera with tailored shorts and sweet tea dresses in porcelain blue and pink fit for a day in London. Red, white and blue outfits with checks and plaids were quintessential cruisewear."
It's a little understated in the color story - lots of black and white - but she more than makes up for it with her masterful use of pattern and print. There's also a nice range of shapes and silhouettes here. We can't say we're completely bowled over, but it's a pretty and chic collection that once again demonstrates that Diane knows exactly what she's doing.
