Earlier this year, we learned that Frenchman Yvan Mispelaere would be taking over the helm as creative director for Diane von Furstenberg (DvF). For DvF spring 2011, the first collection under Mispelaere’s watch, I was curious to see what direction he would take at DvF, especially given his previous stints at Gucci, Lanvin, and Valentino.
On the runway, I was happy to see bold, vibrant colors that we are accustomed to from DvF. There were lots of strappy footwear with the rich emerald hue on the curtain-ish rope platforms (top left) being my favorite. The heels, in keeping with other spring runways, were more substantive (i.e. not stick figure thin) but I’m not sure that I prefer the geometric gold painted heels.
