Diane von Furstenberg’s Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection embodies the classic elegance of the fall. The collection features rich fall colors, lady-like silhouettes, and beautiful combinations of textures. She uses deep neutral colors such as maroon, red and black, in unison with varying pops of pink, bright yellows and greens. The silhouettes are elegant and simple, but also whimsical and playful. DVF adds edge to classic pieces by pairing sequins with fur and patent leather. In my opinion, this collection embodies the persona of a New York woman. It is very wearable, and the textures seem suitable for fall temperatures, yet there are pieces that are fun, quirky, and meant to give any woman a certain pop. DVF is a consistently beautiful designer, and this collection is no exception.
Thakoon Panichgul fall ready-to-wear collection was full of lady-like dresses and skirts with touches of pink, black, and red. Shown at the Plaza Hotel, the collection was definitely a beautiful sight. Thakoon stayed true to his classic designs such as a camel coat with a hot pink collar and a fuschia cocktail dress with a deep v-neck. The must-have item out of this collection is Thakoon’s mongolian fur sweaters that look so cozy and will definitely keep you warm during those cold winter months. With a red lip and a sleek chignon bun, you are instantly the Thakoon woman for the fall season.
