New York: Diane Von Furstenberg continued this season with her signature wrap dresses, bold patterns, and bright colors but in a new location, Spring Studios, straying from her traditional Lincoln Center venue, opting for a smaller, more personal space. Model and celebrity Kendall Jenner opened the show in a white cashmere wrap dress, sure to bring a new and younger customer awareness to the brand. While the majority of styles rang true to Diane von Furstenberg’s traditional silhouettes with feminine dresses and slim jumpsuits, new styles including sweater dresses, oversized pullovers, and bright fur parkas held a more youthful edge. The color palette was based with black and white and had pops of cobalt and lipstick red. A multi-color speckle print complimented knit stripes and embroidered florals. While accessories were limited this season to clutches and handbags, snakeskin Mary Jane’s stole the show in white and red combinations. –Jaclyn Jones
