Egyptian Jinx… Diane Von Furstenberg SS10

Egyptian Jinx… buy me a Diet Coke! Egypt, Egypt… get your plane tickets, and don’t forget your sunblock. Dianne Von Furstenberg took the Egyptian motif and gave it a more holiday twist….did designers get a mailed brief for this season’s theme? or is it like one of those things when you start coming to work and you’re unintentionally wearing the same colors as your coworkers. Or you accidentally get the same Christmas present for your mom that your sister did.

If I watched Indiana Jones movies more often, I might think there was some kind of conspiracy going on here… but I’m just going to stick my head in the sand, and look at the pretty rich desert colors,  hints of safari and Julius Caesar wreaths….

Oh! Annnd… I sighted a lady wearing the subway dress by Christian Francis Roth.

    This is the first time I’ve been stopped in my tracks by DVF’s work. I have always liked it, and sometimes even loved it, but somehow, these looks are really a departure. The black dress and the orange embellished tank are superb.

    I love that you captured the CFR subway map dress!

    Beautiful photos as always Jennine.

    Oh: Good luck on your panel and soirée tonight!

    I really am digging those wreath-like hair pieces (headbands? circlet? what are they officially called?!). They’re a very cool take on that ancient style–and a great metamorphosis of the ongoing headband/fascinator trend.

    At Teen Vogue U in 07 I asked Doo Ri if designers came together for a secret meeting – I imagined something like superheros in cartoons do – to discuss trends to incorporate and interpret in their designs. Apparently, its all chance. I however think she lied in effort to not blow up their spot hehe.

    PS Thank you again for the Forum the other night, I learned a lot from the panel you put together and met some amazing girls!
