Diane Von Furstenberg Fall 2011: Western Glamazons

DvF headed west this season. The theme from The Good the Bad and the Ugly (mixed with the requisite fashion show thumping bass) played as models in bolero hats, gaucho pants, and cropped leather jackets (some with fringe, some in colorful patchwork) hit the runway. Of course, DvF's lady pioneers are super glamorous too--she mixes and matches bold prints, she isn't afraid to wear monochrome looks in bold blues, reds and fuchsias, and when she goes out on the town she wears oversized sunnies, long fur vests, and superhero-esque (maybe a little Rainbow Bright-esque) gowns in gold, sequins and shimmering silks. There were a lot of individual pieces to covet from this collection--namely the luxe coats in bold colors, and an aqua silk tee with a thick gold and black stripe at the top--but the collection overall didn't seem as chock-full of perfect cocktail dresses and workwear looks as we've come to expect from DvF. But then again, anything goes in the wild wild west.
