dvf resort 2018 for lookbook

The wrap dress may not be having a moment in DVF’s resort lineup for 2018, but the label itself is certainly is. And it seems Jonathan Saunders is bringing a bit more of a hard edge to the decidedly feminine boho house. With hemlines below the knee and silhouettes balancing the high wire between long and lean and retro inspired generously cut pieces, the over all effect is vaguely unsettling but oh so provocative.

But it is this feeling of the unexpected and the sophisticated but darkly flirty vibe that is truly the essence of this dramatically cosmopolitain collection

Stripes, florals and lace are interwoven through the lineup and are broken up by unexpected geometric patterns and the occasional appearance of the racing stripe. Add fur bombers, color blocked cross body bags, and open-toed lace-up bowling style boots and there is nothing expected here. But it is this feeling of the unexpected and the sophisticated but darkly flirty vibe that is truly the essence of this dramatically cosmopolitain collection.

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]A[/dropcap] reinvented 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.
