Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2010 Collection: Bohemian Tomboy Chic



If Diane von Furstenberg's spring collection was less than stellar, she certainly made up for her unusual misstep with this fabulous collection for fall/winter 2010. The brand's bread and butter, the wrap dress, was present and accounted for. Diane's signature piece was treated to a few tweaks in the form of voluminous shoulders and flouncy, layered skirts. Although much of the collection centers on Furstenberg's use of mixing prints and texture, the collection's true nature is that of a bohemian tomboy.


Patterned mini dresses and cropped pants paired with blazers, cardigans and bolero jackets are DvF's must-have staples for fall. Her core clientele will love the usual suspects included in the collection, but the more urban, masculine tone for fall will certainly attract new fans (like me!).


We've seen most of the bags featured during the runway show before like the Stephanie hobo (mercifully done in a smaller size) and shoulder bag (the all-black version is quite nice), the Marisa tote and the Piper bag (a creation covered in studs and feathers - the only dud in the bunch). The popular Marlene clutch made a few appearances with an indigo suede/gold-tone hammered metal version taking the prize for best in show.


All these bags, however, take a back seat to the one bag I was anticipating the most. The convertible tote, which made its debut in DvF's pre-fall collection, is back. This grey grained leather tote is an interesting take on the top frame bag and features a strap along the bottom panel that can be threaded through a snap on the top of the design. The result is a convertible bag that's become a requisite accessory for today's working woman.

The Final Analysis: Furstenberg's fall collection was another well-executed vision of ready to wear that all women can take something away from.
