NY Fashion Week : DVF SS 2014

So in the height of fashion week in New York, many designers across all genres of style are competing amongst one another to showcase their newest collections to the world of journalists, industry experts and fashion lovers alike. There are very few designers that I would be inspired to write  a whole post about but I feel it was only appropriate to write this piece on the legend designer that is Diane Von Furstenberg. Her iconic status was set in stone with the unveiling of the wrap dress,  which still is a much loved style for women all over the world, but it is her continuous expression of bold prints which has led her runway shows into a special part of my fashion heart. This year has proved this statement yet again with her "Oasis" themed collection and display of tribal prints, all of which can be appreciated by Boho fashionistas. 

 Boho style is a particular look which I particularly love, and if you have read some of my previous posts you will know that I have talked about how I want this trend to stick around for a long time. I enjoy the freedom of loose clothing and bold colours, and the look as a whole is quite playful and energetic. It really is the perfect assemble for summer attire. With this latest collection from DVF, it gives a Moroccan atmosphere with the use of coral and cobalt blue colouring, which are all very complimentary with tans (natural or from a bottle!). Another iconic look from the designer which continues to stay on trend is the shift dress, and Diane Von Furstenberg showcases the best item from the collection (in my opinion) at the end of the show.

The shift dress is very flattering if you are a little insecure of the mid drift area, and the contrasting and clashing print towards the end hem of the dress draw attention to your legs which can allow you to show off a newly developed tan! As well as bold colours, DVF showcased a wide variety of camel coloured pieces to compliment her "Oasis" themed runway. 

Another look from this collection which captured my attention was the floor lenght camel maxi dress which is pictured above, and I just really hope that the high street make a replica!! Not only does it look really comfortable but the colours are perfect for long summer evenings relaxing on the beach (wishful dreaming). 

The above images are some of my favourite from this show, and it seems that the longer hem line is staying around for awhile yet, so if you haven't already invested in a statement tube colour it may just be time!

So I'm going to wrap this post up with some wise words from the icon herself, and I hope you enjoyed the post! Also the full video for this runway show is below!
