Runway Report: Diane Von Furstenberg Spring 2010

Diane von Furstenberg's global nomad bounced around the north African desert this season, making a sunset stop along the Nile River. Von Frustenberg is known to put on a great show, and this season her powerful front row included André Leon Talley, Tina Brown, Fran Lebowitz, Graydon Carter, Terry Richardson and Carine Roitfeld (in a blue and white striped button down shirt and khaki pencil skirt).

Presenting a collection of very wearable separates and dresses—we especially loved a cream tunic embellished with blue floral beading and the perfect-for-traveling, colorful jersey dresses—von Furstenberg is in her element designing for the spring season, when shoppers long for color and print. The strongest prints—animal skin safari, washed-out florals and ancient-inspired graphics—were offset by vibrant solid pieces in slate, red, green and yellow.

The bounty of accessories on the runway were one-part Egyptian Queen (armfuls of woven bangles) and one part Greek Goddess (gold laurel wreaths), celebrating the free-spirited traveler that is Diane von Furstenberg.
