This season Diane von Furstenberg gave the fashion world a modern day update of the French Riviera style of the 1950s. The designer posed herself the question: what would an in her prime Bridget Bardot wear today?
The answer seemed to be that she would still favor quite a lot of girly gingham. But to better catch the summer sunlight beating down on the Cote d’Azur she would embellish her bra tops, flirty short day dresses or palm frond tunic top in glossy brightly colored sequins, micro crystals or reflective mirrored embellishments.
Even at her most playful, von Furstenberg makes sure to never lose track of the effect a woman in her clothing can have on the world.
