Perhaps DVF was feeling that her clientele wasn’t to her liking or her clothes weren’t exciting enough; whatever the reason, she’s clearly making a bold appeal to the younger gals with this one. She’s not alone in that. There was a time when resort and pre-fall collections were targeted to socialites of any age, but lately a lot of designers seem to have settled in on the jetsetting debutante types as their muse. The collection is called “Macadam Diva,” which is so DVF: girly-fabulous with a touch of the international. It’s all very “defiant gal, making her way in the urban jungle,” which isn’t a new concept, but it’s done well here; “sexy and aggressive,” as DVF described it, but also fun and youthful.We think it’s the most energetic thing she’s done in some time. Some seriously great pieces in a bold color palette, and loaded with fabulous prints, bien sûr.
