By the end of Nathan Jenden’s tenure as Diane von Furstenberg’screative director, the collection had taken on an unapologetically girlyspirit marked by festive pilings and explosions of stuff. Now it’s YvanMispelaere’s turn to interpret DVF’s printed and wrapped world. In whatdirection would he go? Show notes called the collection, Mispelaere’sfirst, “Goddess” and traced its inspiration back to an Isadora Duncanshow in Paris, two references that were a little misleading inretrospect. It turned out this wasn’t an exercise in romantic Greciandraping, and there wasn’t a single silk scarf in sight. Nor was thefirst look, a jumpsuit version of DVF’s iconic printed wrap dress thatfell on the bland side of the DVF vocabulary, an accurate harbinger ofwhat was to come.
