Diane Von Furstenberg always promises a solid dose of color, fun prints, and a flirtatious but ladylike attitude – Spring 2016 didn’t disappoint.
I noted the flowing silhouettes and draping lines prior to reading that Diane entitled the show “Fortvna,” after the Roman goddess of luck – I suppose, then, she did a brilliant job of conveying that underlying tone!
There was also a dash of bohemian and 70’s nightclub in the mix… Perhaps Fortnva was on 54th Street in the later ’70s also!
Beauty very much reflected a happy-hippy-’70s flare – it was upbeat, colorful, young and carefree.
Eyes were the strong focus, swathed in brightly colored, shimmering shadow for a playful and artistic take on metallic…no doubt taking a cue from the lame and bold print hues in Diane’s Collection!
Blues and greens were mixed, for one, gracing both top and bottom lids with happy insouciance. The effect was a la scarab in a way – chromatic and vibrant.
Hair was pin-curled loosely before the show, creating some gorgeous, easy waves…
Nails were paired down…and thank goodness! With the multitude of buys prints and mixed-media (as we called it in the industry) footwear, anything more *could* have been overboard.
