Diane von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

At first glance, all we can think of is Legally Blonde, Barbie and a whole lot of sexy have created a new world dimension. And then we come back down to earth and start really appreciating the gorgeous nature of the Diane von Furstenberg spring/summer 2016 collection shown off during the New York Fashion Week. Boy are we thrilled! There is just something about seeing a blonde girl in a frilly pink getup that is both pretty and alluring while keeping up professional pretences that brings a certain ditsy lawyer with one incredible attitude to mind. And then we are faced with shirt skirts, wraparound tops and lovely belts cinching in the waists, along with a whole lot of dots, V-necks and translucent shirts with nary a bra worn underneath. We notice that what we are looking at is very much what we would expect from the runways, while the hair styling more than the clothing itself commands our attention. After all, flowing waves and flowers in the tresses is rather hard to ignore on a good day, let alone with placing the latest in the fashion industry under intense scrutiny.

There is one thing that really is not working for us though. The top trends of 2015 seem to have shifted over to 2016 as well, having us wonder at which trends can be considered new and fresh. As lovely as the designs may be, we have a nagging voice in our head to keep saying, “that is so last year!” After all, did not the popular girls with all the latest designer items used to say that all the time? So then why are the SS 2016 Fashion Weeks so full of trends that have been covered for at least 12 months, if not 24? Needless to say, we might never get tired of the billowing skirts, the relaxed wide pants and the plunging necklines. Among the general population, they are trends that are still slow in taking root and staying rooted.

Inspired by the Roman goddess Fortuna, the Diane von Furstenberg spring/summer 2016 collection keeps moving between the ethereal and the very real, going from long flowing skirts to mesh crop tops with batching crop jackets and high waist ankle length trousers. If there is one thing we love most about it all, it is the golden butterfly theme that seems to take over in many parts of the collection, along with the focus on the brighter colors mixed in with magenta and darker blues. The butterflies, however, take the cake and look equally as amazing whether they appear on a black background or white, on a shorter hem or full length.

While some designers could certainly have done better overall, this is one beautiful line-up that deserves its applause and media coverage to the fullest. Whether a woman looks better going for the cute, alluring, classical or sultry appearance in her day, Diane von Furstenberg has got her covered from head to toe, literally speaking.
