Who doesn’t love a fresh start? For Diane Von Furstenberg, Spring 2012 is all about “New Beginnings.” Here, some of our own pick some of their favorites from the collection.
MERRI SMITH, Marketing Operations Coordinator
When I think of Spring, I think of… Sunshine, warm air and tank tops.
My favorite thing about Spring is… A sense of renewal, a fresh start. I especially feel this way living in New York, the entire landscape changes; the leaves are green, the sky is blue, people come out from under their coats, the tables at my favorite restaurants return to the sidewalks. The place is transformed.
I would describe my personal style as… Laid-back but put-together and always a hint of femininity. I adore the way French women dress and try to replicate that when I can and I’m also drawn to anything and everything with a 70’s vibe. DVF’s vintage collection of prints and designs from various looks she created in the 70’s totally spoke to me.
I chose this DVF maxi dress because… I love a wrap dress, it has always flattered my tall frame, and as everyone knows, nobody makes a wrap dress quite like Diane.
I’ll probably wear it… With leather sandals and a fantastic summer bag. The dress would look great with a wedge sandal too! What I love about a long dress is it can transition seamlessly into Fall by throwing a chunky sweater over the top and pairing with boots and a knit beret.
JENNY DONG, PR & Special Events
When I think of Spring, I think of… flowers, bright colors and ice cream.
My favorite thing about Spring is… the warm weather with light breeze and the smell of fresh cut grass.
I would describe my personal style as… comfort combined with fashion is what I like. For work, I prefer classic fitted sheath dresses with a pair of pumps. On the weekends, you can find me in skinny pants with an oversized button-down paired with wedges.
I chose this DVF cobalt blue dress because… it is a perfect dress for work in the springtime. The bright color combined with a perfectly fitted silhouette is very flattering.
I’ll probably wear it… on a warm day with a pair of strappy sandals. On a slightly cooler day, I would wear it with a pair of pumps and a light cardigan.
HEATHER HERTZ, Coordinator, PR/Events
When I think of Spring, I think of… FINALLY! Spring is always my most anticipated season – it brings back eating outdoors, the beach, sandals. Most of the things I miss most about Florida; where I’m from.
My favorite thing about Spring is… the flowers. Blooming peonies, cherry blossoms, ranunculus and tulips are some of my favorites. I love them all!
I would describe my personal style as… classic with an edge. I love making a simple outfit fun with one key piece – either a bold color pant, layers of necklaces or bracelets or a patterned accessory or shoes.
I chose this tangerine DVF dress and lemon yellow cardigan because… of its eye-catching colors, simplicity and versatility. It looks young paired with a casual flat and could easily be brought into night with a pair of metallic wedges!
I’ll probably wear it… to a backyard/rooftop BBQ.
MAGGIE McVEIGH, PR & Special Events Coordinator
When I think of Spring, I think of… COLOR! Vibrant fabrics, from head-to-toe, in solids and fun patterns.
My favorite think about Spring is… that everything comes to life: flowers are in bloom, the sun is shining, and everyone can enjoy the city.
I would describe my personal style as… lady with an edge.
I chose this clover-colored DVF dress because… I was immediately drawn to its brilliant green hue and I like that it can be styled for a range of occasions.
I’ll probably wear it… with my favorite DVF wedge sandals and a jeweled necklace.
