Diane von Furstenberg and her creative director Yvan Mispelaere titled their resort collection Zoom “because the closer you get, the more you see,” said von Furstenberg. They envisioned the lineup, brimming with youthful energy, color and trompe l’oeil effects, as a trip across the U.S. through the eyes of two Europeans who find classic Americana to be quite exotic. It started with DVF’s home base: 440 W. 14th Street in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, which inspired graphic black-and-white prints splashed with pretty pops of pink, as well as a new bag range called The 440. A polished top handle style — available in two sizes and a clutch — it comes in an array of chic color-blocked treatments. “Accessories are no longer the accessory,” said von Furstenberg. “We mean business.” The collection canvased additional territory, ranging from a cute baseball jacket reimagined in an abstract sequined print, to an ode to Elvis via upbeat rockabilly tuxedos, like a green and black sequined jacket and miniskirt.
