Diane von Furstenberg decided to let in some light for spring; literally, via the sun pouring into Spring Studios, and sartorially, with the pretty collection that put a noticeable emphasis on day clothes.

The French Riviera during the Fifties — the glamorous years when it was frequented by the likes of Matisse and Picasso — provided the thematic backdrop for a lineup marked by gingham of different scales and colors. The designer used it with ease and abundance, in black and white on a poplin silk and jersey dress that exuded a carefree attitude, and blue and white for a top with shorts, a look that can easily be imagined on a young Brigitte Bardot on the Mediterranean. She also embellished the pattern and mixed it with other prints, all with insouciance. It was a strong debut for the line’s new artistic director, Michael Herz, formerly of Bally, who also curated DVF’s “Journey of a Dress” exhibit, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of her iconic wrap dress.

The delightful sentiment also extended to von Furstenberg’s runway bow. She took her usual full turn singing along to the seventies Italian hit, “Parole Parole” as some of her faithful front-rowers — Barry Diller and Bryan Lourd — and new fans, including New York’s First Lady Chirlane McCray, cheered.

Diane von Furstenberg Resort 2015: “Celebration” was the overriding theme of Diane von Furstenberg’s resort collection, though there was more than just party-ready clothes. The designer offered several new versions of her wrap dress, including a color-blocked style with knit sleeves, as well as looks with ample casual chic, as in the breezy shirtdress featuring an abstract flag print.

Diane Von Furstenberg’s Wrap Dress

“Journey of a Dress,” a retrospective of four decades of wraps by Diane, features plenty of DVF herself: The mannequins are molded after her own face and her famous cheekbones. Then there’s the gallery of portraits of her by Andy Warhol, Barbara Kruger, Chuck Close, Francesco Clemente, Helmut Newton and Annie Leibovitz, to name a few. 

At the time a newlywed, she was just 22 when she launched her first line, and 26 when she created the first wrap. She was in her 50s when she relaunched the wrap dress in 1997 after a decade-long absence from retail. It was again an instant hit, and the contemporary collection retails in 1,500 points of sale in 55 countries and 85 branded boutiques worldwide.
