Let’s get one thing straight: I don’t care who makes them, I’m never, ever wearing gauchos again. The voluminous short pants had a resurgence back when I was in college, and I’ve seen enough pictures of myself and others from that year that I know better than to be fooled (again) into thinking that gauchos are a good idea. Not even the fancy gauchos from Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2011 can make me reconsider that decision. It’s final.
Luckily, DvF provided plenty of other drool-worthy options in her Wild West-tinged show. As always, color and pattern abounded, but some of the most interesting looks were the most monochromatic. Head-to-toe cerulean or seafoam in textures ranging from silk to wool to fur might be a difficult prospect for the average woman, but then again, when has Diane von Furstenberg ever dressed average women?
