Diane von Furstenberg just unveiled her spring ad campaign, and it's one of the more visually jarring ones we've seen this season. Shot by Camilla Akrans, the ads are an ode to surrealist painters. The ads are so surreal, in fact, that you can't see the model's face. Instead, the face is covered with a mirror, which reflects the sky. Von Furstenberg also hopes you see yourself in the image, wearing that wrap dress. “I like that you can see yourself in these images," she told WWD. "This time for me is all about new beginnings.” And presumably, a new DVF dress. What do you think of the ads?

Diane Von Furstenberg Spring 2012: New Beginnings
Diane Von Furstenberg's Spring 2012 show, titled Beginnings, was all about that clean slate--that tabula rasa--that comes with spring; the new year and the season for, well, beginnings. It's perhaps no coincidence that Furstenberg was slated to show on 9/11's 10th anniversary. Diane herself finished the show to Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" (the chorus is: "It's a new dawn, it's a new day") and handed out mini American flags to the audience, underlining the hopeful start of a new season, not just for DVF but for America.
