One of my obsessions this week was found at http://nymag.com/ , I am so in love with the way the video was shot, and it totally takes me away to beautiful place, with fabulous dresses from the seventies, and of course the uber fabulous, Diane Von Furstenberg . I hope you enjoy it as much I do.
Diane Von Furstenberg must know that while the look of vintage is great, the smell of it isn’t everyone’s thing. On February 22 on dvf.com, she’s launching a line of “slightly modernized versions” of her wrap dresses from the seventies with vintage prints. The full line also includes accessories, bathing suits (hey, it’s going to be 61 and sunny tomorrow, so get on that), and the requisite iPad and iPod cases, all in vintage DVF prints. We have an exclusive video montage of the collection for you to enjoy. The best part about it may be the opening shot of a letter from Vogue to Diane from then editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland, dated April 9, 1970, reading:
I think your clothes are absolutely smashing.
I think the fabrics, the prints, the cut are all great. This is what we need. We hope to do something very nice for you.
Look for vintage footage of Diane in the video.
