New York Fashion Week: Diane Von Furstenberg's goddesses
Turn to simple draping and graphic designs, that's what. And it was a welcome departure from so many seasons of chiffon layers, sequins and doodads.
Dresses (T-shirt and wrap styles in spring's longer length) came in stark, classical Greek-inspired two-tone, "broken wave," "Greek key" and "scroll" prints (more akin to her original designs from the '70s.) It was great to see the wrap dress evolve into chic wrap jumpsuits and rompers too.
She added some easy sportswear separates to the mix, including khaki linen cullottes, a cloud-print trench coat and a brick-red toile suit with cropped pants. The finale? Gold goddess gowns of course, to continue with the Greek theme.
