"She walks where she wants her life to go...firmly on the heels of her of her wooden wedges…she moves like a whisper commanding a goddess gown as easily as a patterned T." Such was the introduction showgoers were given to Diane von Furstenberg's spring runway show. DVF was heralding the return of the rock goddess—flowy dresses, “kaleidoscope prints”—in terms that were fashion-focused, colorfully over-the-top and, well, ever-so-slightly incomprehensible. Prefacing the list of models and clothing descriptions, designers use this formula—a paragraph (or six) in the show’s program to sum up their moods, inspirations and muses (a quote—whether by Ralph Waldo Emerson or Diana Vreeland—is often a popular way to capture all three at once).
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth.
