Areinvented classic often brings a blend of unconnected elements together in a new and unexpected ways; and this eclectic duality can certainly be seen in Diane Von Furstenburg’s Pre-Fall collection for 2015. With Michael Hertz in the role of creative director it seems the new collection has side stepped it’s sophisticated lady like elegance just a bit, and embraced a more free-spirited aesthetic with a nod towards the boho festival Coachella vibe. From a leopard print skirt suit to a patch work maxi dress with leather detail, to a striped pattern over coat with a leopard print collar and a chambray wrap dress with a raw denim edge, the pieces in this collection speaks to the young independent woman who isn’t a slave to fashion but knows how to follow her own inherent style. A mixed palette of bright saturated oranges, vibrant burgundies, and jewel tone greens play nicely with the cooler, more earth tone colors. And much like the in between pre-fall season there is a variety of textures at play: silk jersey, denim, lace, linen and tweed all come together in a perfect balance of early fall refinement with a summer inspired twist. Pieces that are meant to help you transition from the breezy effortlessness of summer, to the brisk buttoned up invigorating days of fall combine in a chic, and brilliantly beautiful collection that is vibrant as it is classic.
