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?

    Love love the color combinations here, so bold and exciting to look at. The rightmost outfit in the head photo is stunning with all those peek-a-boo holes!

    Gucci, Hermes Spring/Summer 2011? Ehh…

    I’m on the fence. I want to like them, but I think that there are more that I dislike. But, I have never been one to say that I want to wear DVF.

    I could see myself in something like #1, the gauchos look cool on the model but I don’t think I’d go for them.

    Hmmm…. Usually, I am a huge DvF fan, but this is not her strongest collection. Some of these outfits are great, e.g. like #1,2,7,and 17, but others are… just not my cup of tea, I guess.
