Diane von Furstenberg has a story for every season. For pre-fall, the collection was titled Palazzo and was theoretically inspired by the grand palazzos of Rome and Florence. But more specifically, the collection was derived from traditional men’s ties and foulard prints in a palette of navy, orange and deep green. “Imagine a very elegant, chic men’s shop,” said von Furstenberg, who is in-between creative directors. Michael Herz is no longer with the company and von Furstenberg and Paolo Riva, who was named ceo in April, are in the process of building a team. She imagined the ties and scarves on soft pleated skirts, easy slipdresses, a great color-blocked shearling jacket, and her wrap dresses. The collection had focus and ease — everything lightweight and packable, like a silk scarf picked up along the way — and a polished bourgeois attitude. But not too polished. “I said, ‘No pumps,’” DVF said. “Everything is worn with a bootie. They’re cooler.”
