DVF Spring 2013 Runway Review: The queen of iconic, feminine, ready to wear is back! Diane Von Furstenberg unleases her bold Spring 2013 collection and takes it up a notch by introducing Google’s Project Glass eyewear as the newest techy accessory.
Project Glass uses technology to stream information to your eyes, rather than onto a screen of a phone, and pairing one of these uber-tech shades with your colorful DVF shift dresses takes on some bizarre Minority Report meets 5th Avenue edge.
Back to the clothes! The classic wrap dress takes a back seat in the line to colorblocked shift dresses and soft pants. Dropped lapel jackets in an array of colors, some with metal beading, other with panels of contrast colors, are an excellent layering piece and manage to be work appropriate with the abiltity to transition into evening, worn over a dress or draped jumpsuit.
Peplums carry on their position in the limelight on pants, jumpsuits, and skirts; I particularly loved the layered peplum shell with color blocking on the edges.
The bright pink, A-line, shortie shorts will add so much to your Spring wardrobe – dressed up with soft shirtings, dressed down with a cotton tank, or worn with a jacket for the office.
Beautifully draped dresses carried on the well-roundedness of the line and again, nothing lacks color and confidence.
Besides collecting the clothing goodies from the runway, your next styling task will be choosing the color of your Project Glass eyewear. The iPhone is sooooo 2012! – Alix Kivlin
