Even though the notes for Diane von Furstenberg’s Spring 2012 runway show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York indicated that the inimitable DVF had been inspired by modern Africa, the clothes that can down the runway felt a lot more like early-1960s California to me. Between the soft color palette (the show opened with white, a first for von Furstenberg), the midcentury modern floral prints and the models with beehive hairdos, I could have sworn we were all in Palm Springs.

Regardless of location, though, this collection is where I want to be in my mind. It looks like a place of relaxation and chic comfort, and even though lavender flowers on an ivory background have precious little to do with my personal style, DVF pulls it off so well in some of these looks that I can’t resist. After all, who works with pattern like she does?

Yes, yes, although #8 looks a little nutty. Kind of Stepford wife-y. I like these for the most part.

Great collection as usual.. And as usual I love DvF’s dresses.. The sage and soft pink one was beautiful, but my fav was the lime green dress with dark green accents. Very pretty and spring like.
