We are a couple of days into New York fashion week and my favourite shows so far have been "Diane von Furstenberg" and "Herve Leger for BCBG Max Azria".
40 years ago Diane von Furstenberg invented one of the most iconic clothing pieces ever: the wrapping dress. Her collection still exists out of a couple of wrap dresses every season. This milestone was celebrated with a new location; Spring Studios.
Of course you don't become a major designer by designing one amazing piece. DvF included some striking coats and furs. She saved the best for the last, some looks in my favourite color: gold.
Here are some images to give you an idea of the show:
Where Diane von Furstenberg is all about the wrap dress, Max and Lubov Azria from Hervé Leger are all about the bandage dress. They succeeded in reinventing the bandage dress all over again for coming fall, think cage-corset belts, car wash hems and navel-baring cutouts. Texture came with 3-D jacquards and pixelated metal beading.
