NYFW Fantasy Costuming: Diane von Furstenberg’s Strong 70s Aesthetic is Ideal for Vinyl

16 Feb

The Diane von Furstenberg show is always high on the most anticipated list in part because of the pre-ladysuit Alana Bloom costume stylings and because Furstenberg creates plenty of pieces that can be worn by women on television from an array of eras. This RTW Fall 2016 collection has a huge 70s influence – the iconic DVF wrap dress celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2014 – continuing the recent trend of delving back into my favorite style decade and running with it.

In somewhat perfect timing Vinyl started this week and it isn’t a leap when suggesting these garments are ideal for this show. Fabrics such as suede, leather, tweed and printed silk shirts aplenty make this super 1970s friendly with knee length, floor skimming and leg bearing in equal measure. So much brown, purple, sequins and pattern clashing with a mixture of boho and disco further add to the strong visual impact of the era when Diane von Furstenberg’s signature wrap dress first came onto the scene.

Here are a few of the standout pieces from this runway show that would look amazing on Olivia Wilde, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen and Juno Temple on Vinyl.DVF 2

DVF 12There is a slight hint of The Americans and Elizabeth Jennings, travel agent in some of the suede skirt/boots/silk shirts and the 80s didn’t become THE EIGHTIES until later in the decade (also Elizabeth is not one for fads).

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

1 May

Fancy frocks aplenty at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. Plus various other red carpet looks on this edition of Look of the Week including bold prints and the 70s influence I can’t get enough of reigns once again.

Gillian JacobsGillian Jacobs is killing it in Peter Pilotto showing why she is a resident Out of the Box member as she often leans towards daring, patterned choices like this one. Pairing this dress with black strappy platforms and super soft curls mixes retro glamour with Old Hollywood chic; Jacobs looks stunning.

Lucy LiuA beaded Naeem Khan dress for Lucy Liu and this is simple chic at its best. Red lipstick adds an extra pop and the hair down approach adds a softness to the whole ensemble.

Darby StanchfieldAs the White House Press Secretary on Scandal we’re used to seeing Darby Stanchfield standing behind a podium in various forms of business wear so it is good to see her in something a little more fancy (and with a whole lot less drama going on) and this ivory Ludmila Corlateanu gown is just that.

Troian BellisarioAlso taking a break from TV drama is Troian Bellisario from Pretty Little Liars and even though I stopped watching some time ago I still really want to know who A is. The gold belt detail enlivens this white dress and there is a dash of 70s summer cocktail party to the whole cut of it.

Juno TempleSpeaking of my favorite style decade here is Juno Temple at the Far from the Madding Crowd premiere embracing 70s print in Saint Laurent and I am reminded by both Temple and Gillian Jacobs that platform heels are the only ones that don’t break my feet. Well those and the gaudy metallic silver wedges I wore when I was 16. I probably won’t be digging those out again.

Sophie TurnerTaking a break from capes is Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner decked out in Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 at the annual Garden Brunch in Washington DC over the weekend and as with Michelle Williams in everything Louis Vuitton I am definitely feeling the mixture of textures, patterns, buttons and zips.

Mae Whitman and Mamie GummerLady suit alert! Mae Whitman wears the appropriately titled “Boob Suit” from Rachel Antonoff at Refinery29’s digital content presentation (so much exciting stuff on their roster) looking equal parts edgy and adorable. Of course there are bonus red lipstick points and I am forever drawing hearts around her name.

Mamie Gummer does the whole effortless chic thing in skinny jeans, white tee suede boots and a coat that skirts near bathrobe territory, but manages to look super cool at the same time. Yes I would spill something down both outfits in an instant and be super sad about it.

Elisabeth MossAs with my complicated feelings about jumpsuits/rompers, the crop top is another one that falls into this category. Elisabeth Moss at the Chaplin Award Gala in Nha Khanh is the perfect amount of crop to the top with that slight sliver of torso on display (don’t get me wrong I am all for other people wearing this garment, but it terrifies me personally). This is a really pretty outfit and the graphic print/length of the skirt gives it a retro feel and still manages to avoid all Mad Men influence comparisons.

Mad Men 7.11 Peggy dressI wrote a whole thing about Peggy in the most recent episode of Mad Men but one thing I didn’t cover was how much I love this dress. Peggy’s style has been so much sharper this season and this is partly down to her growing confidence and because the new decade is hitting all her sartorial points. I would 100% wear this today.
