Diane von Furstenberg‘s clothes have maintained an almost staggering level of popularity for decades, largely because they’re so wearable. Diane has a keen sense for what stylish women want to wear in their everyday lives, and coupled with a somewhat attainable price point, she sells clothes, shoes and housewares hand over fist to exactly those women. The era with which von Furstenberg is most closely associated, though, is the 1970s – she launched her company in 1970 and introduced the iconic wrap dress in 1974. It seemed appropriate, then, that Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2013 would so strongly reference the shapes and colors of the era that shot its designer to fame. The clothes were every bit reflective of the jetset summer social schedule of a young princess.
At the same time, though, DVF’s collection looked forward. As we reported over the weekend, the runway show was dotted with participants and spectators (and Diane) wearing Glass by Google, a slim pair of glasses that takes in the wearer’s point of view with a tiny camera attached to the frame. The footage will be edited into a video that will debut on the official DVF YouTube page later in the week, but until then, check out the collection through our lens.
