If you’ve ever imagined yourself our clubbing during the height of the glam rock era, you might just find yourself adorned in Diane Von Furstenberg’s Fall 2013 Collection. Mixed with heavy prints, bold colors and bright patterns – the disco-infused theme wasn’t just the inspiration for the fall collection, it heavily influenced the runway soundtrack instantly transforming the DVF Fall 2013 show audience to a less-than-typical evening at the iconic Studio 54.
One by one as each model graced the runway, we saw it all including DVF signature wrap dresses, blazer and skinny pants in “fetish pink,” gold lamé jackets, a turquoise floor-length halter dress, a rabbit-fur black vest, and a dress made of chain mail. Dizzying black-and-white prints were inspired by graphic artist M.C.
Diane Von Furstenberg described her woman for next fall: “Wrapped in a swirl of twisted chain link, she steps into the night. With an effortless glamour, she winks at herself and smiles at her shadow … In sky-high metallic heels, she swaggers across the cityscape … She is the rock star and the muse of her own life. Her clothes are her friends. Life is a party.”

Diane von Furstenberg is a woman who has been traveling all of her life, and her designs have always reflected her understanding of women and what they want. Case in point: For this spring’s collection, she has introduced the ultimate woman-on-the-go bag, a purse with a dedicated spot for your iPad. The bag has a zippered flap on the outside back panel, and it folds out flat, holding your iPad in place. This is amazing for planes, trains, anywhere! Just zip up again and you are ready to go. Beautifully made of leather with a chain strap and a cross-body strap option. $695 at dvf.com.
Once the music began, the seduction that is DVF spilled in. This season’s DVF looks may have donned the same color palette as other collections but the designs are altogether different. From beautiful body hugging dresses to bordeaux pencil skirts and beautiful color-blocked electric tones throughout the entire collection – the seducing appeal of this collection is enough to bring out the diva in anyone.
Not surprisingly, prints made appearances within the collection, but unlike other designer collections you won’t find an overbalance of hounds tooth here. But don’t take my word for it, take a look at the rest of the Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2012 collection for yourself…
