Diane Von Furstenberg SS18

Diane Von Furstenberg SS18 Courtesy of Diane Von Furstenberg

Founding her namesake label in 1972 and one of the key faces of the Studio 54 scene, few people know more about the '70s than Diane von Furstenberg. Who better than she, then, to approve Jonathan Saunders’ contemporary take on the decade for Spring/Summer 2018? His third season as Chief Creative Officer of DVF, but his first runway show, a blue and orange glass-panelled show space indicated the spectrum of loud, flamboyant, juxtaposing colours that were to come.

While Saunders shared that von Furstenberg's stories had cast a profound influence on the collection, so too had Andy Warhol’s factory girl and main muse, Jane Forth, whose modelling career, coincidentally, von Furstenberg launched. Nostalgic references shone through a parade of eveningwear, with fringed seams adding an extra dose of freedom to dresses and tops, alongside handkerchief hems (fast becoming a Saunders signature), flares (of course) and layered folkloric jewellery that exuded nomadic charisma. All-out Seventies, yes, but brought into modern light, with graphic prints and exotic colours bringing something fresh and exciting to the table. Indeed, Ms Furstenberg looked more than happy with the results, watching on from the crowd.
