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.
