Diane von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2013 RTW – New York Fashion Week

If you don’t know how Diane von Furstenberg’s fairy tale began, you’ll definitely discover it after a single glance at the Diane von Furstenberg spring/summer 2013 collection shown at New York Fashion Week. “I became a princess, then it was on to Rome to Marrakesh, to Jaipur — to all of that,” she stated during a preview. Her princess moment was actually the source of inspiration for Diane von Furstenberg to create such a fantabulous collection full of vibrant tones, bold prints, interesting cuts and loads of embellishments.


The designer’s interpretation of the collection? “Some fairy tales end with the girl marrying the prince…some start there…With the polish of a princess and the heart of a gypsy, she fantasizes about a life less structured, about sunsets unseen and deserts in the distance.”
The Diane von Furstenberg spring/summer 2013 collection showed a line of dresses worn over pants, sexy jumpsuits with colorful graphic prints, navy halter dresses layered over orange pants, crepe tunics, palazzo pants, caftan-like gowns, draped blouses with billowing sleeves and all of it in a bold color palette comprising peach, red, navy, lime green, yellow and aqua. Lots of shimmer and sequins were used to make the looks memorable, while statement-making heels, one-of-a-kind sunglasses, chunky jewelry, metallic belts, studded clutches and graphic printed tiny bags finished off the outfits in the most fairy-tale like manner. “She’s a rebel princess who dresses up, but at the same time she can’t wait to sneak out and go clubbing,” von Furstenberg said about the Furstenberg girl this spring.
The Diane von Furstenberg fairy-tale had even a more impressive final: the designer pulled Google cofounder Sergey Brin on the catwalk to demonstrate the innovative spectaclelike Glass by Google accessory.
