Nomadic Movements

New York…Diane von Furstenberg

In opposition to other designers’ somber runway shows, von Furstenberg’s “Nomad” collection truly offered something for everyone with her F/W collection of comfortable separates and glamorous gowns in an array of colors, patterns and fabrics. Models appeared like a unified herd, jaunting down the runway in a medley of grey and fuchsia plaids, boldly colored camouflage and taupe leopard prints. Designed with our unpredictable economy on the mind, the collection was a mine of great mix-and-match pieces that coordinated with each other across the board. Slim menswear inspired plaid suits looked feminine with a long cascading jacket, layered over an animal print cardigan. Comfort was a key styling element, as dresses were paired with cozy chunky knit cardigans and oversized jackets. Camouflage leggings emerged in traditional military colors and matched perfectly with a sharp tailored blazer. The knit pompom hats further harmonized the presentation, tying looks together in matching color ways.
