Diane Von Furstenberg Spring Summer 2012

Diane Von Furstenberg really mixed it up this season, sending full skirts, shapely shifts, slick tailoring, and edgy drapes all down the same catwalk. It seemed like a lot, but would have been manageable were it not for the fact that she also presented many, many prints and colour themes. Looking through the collection, it was hard to pinpoint a few stories as there seemed to be a lot of everything. I counted over 30 prints and patterns, too many of which were badly mixed together in one outfit. Individually, there were some very strong pieces, just be careful of the mix and matching. Head to toe in bold prints doesn’t work on most people.

I love…

a really simple, beautiful white shirt and full skirt.

a gorgeous bold print, although who'd want to wear it head to toe?

printed sequins, especially with this cute pattern.

I loathe…

a really bad colour combination, dull yellow and grey mixed with chocolate and royal blue looks like a bad accident.

when a nice selection of prints gets ruined because they are all mixed together.
