The presence of the iconic Diane Von Furstenberg’s wrap dress was conspicuously minimal during her Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear show this year. With only 2 wrap dresses that sashayed down the catwalk, this was clearly an indication of different things to come for DVF.
Less office wear and tailored separates for the modern woman and more spring/summer couture for the stylish jet set, this French Riviera inspired collection had fans of the brand swooning over more daring yet elegant details like thigh high slits, sheer skirt panels, bare midriff, and legs, legs, legs. Gingham was the print that filled the show, however, one should note that Von Furstenberg’s signature vibrant and feminine florals were still largely represented. Each piece is definitely meant for the relaxing and luxurious coastal life. Here’s my rundown of the 10 best looks from Diane Von Furstenberg’s Spring 2015 RTW:
Lily Donaldson started off the show by making gingham look so worldly and glamorous. The classic wrap dress cut of this dress is made even sexier by the sheer details on the hem of the skirt.
Big hair and smoldering smoky eyes a la 60s starlet and icon Brigitte Bardot makes this coat and dress pairing look extra seductive. I love the gingham combined with the artsy almost porcelain china-like pattern of the pale pink coat.
Colorful and wearable prints are what DVF is all about, and the designer certainly shows off her flair for wonderful textiles. Note the ballerina pink mani-pedi, a recurring nail trend.
One of the two pant looks shown in the show, high waist and flared denim definitely play into the vintage Riviera vacation feel of the collection. This look also reinforce industry rumors of the demise of the skinny jean. If it looks this good, count us onboard with the wide leg denim bandwagon.
You can count on Candice Swanepoel to make a prim and proper skirt suit oozing with sex appeal. Well, the bare midriff and printed crop top is part of the allure too.
Will this herald the rise of gingham accessories? This look is not a bad case for it, since the gingham tote and ankle strap heels make this white coat and shorts combo more playful and ladylike.
Can’t go wrong with DVF classic, every woman should own one of her figure flattering wrap dresses. This piece is a sound investment for your wardrobe that’ll pay you dividends in timeless chicness.
A sunny canary yellow printed maxi dress is the perfect ensemble for any summertime occasion. The thigh high slit gives this maxi an extra oomph.
A three-piece coordinating set of orange and pink florals take a full skirt, cropped jacket, and bralet to a whole new level; more graphic and more current.
No one can close a show as glamorously as supermodel Naomi Campbell herself. Tropical colors mix with delicate white chiffon in a loose silhouette creating a breezy frock that is perfect for those beachside parties and poolside drinks.
What do you think of DVF’s new direction and S/S 2015 collection? Hot or not?
