Fashion month is here at last, and with it comes the glamorous, solution-driven dressing that turns jean shorts and sandals into a distant memory. The impending lineup of late nights, early mornings and jetting across the pond means any outfit begins with the perfect black shades and heels. Go modern classic with Diane’s favorite Leah and the new Monica bootie to get through the month without a hitch. As for the rest, we do our best to travel lightly, relying heavily on a stretch leather pencil skirt and croc crossbody bag. But there’s still one thing missing! For that essential touch of print and color, a confetti tweed top is eye-catching, versatile and oh-so-chic.

The must-have restaurant reservation. The sold out Broadway show. They don’t stand a chance against the charms of our quintessential wrap dress in this new floral print. Our seasonless, curve-hugging silk jersey in this sweet fall palette is a recipe for transition dressing that feels fresh and versatile with a seventies-inspired suede heel and a geometric, multi-strand necklace. Best of all, this floral wrap pairs so well with our Secret Agent tote and the Agent Farrah zip on clutch that lends an unabashedly feminine flair.

Why not celebrate the last sweltering week of August with a full-body immersion in midnight kisses? Every minute we spend not romancing ourselves and others is an utterly wasted minute. Imagine a world without Romeo’s blushing pilgrims, Rodin’s iconic sculpture, the eternally damned lovers in Dante’s Inferno doomed to kiss for all eternity, or Rhett and Scarlett, or Macaulay Culkin and Anna Chlumsky, or most lyrically—though perhaps also disturbingly—the peppermint-scented first kiss between Humbert Humbert and Lolita? Let kisses envelope your sundries, let kisses cover your body and walk with kisses wherever you go. Wear them all together or hide your kisses in a pouch in your Secret Agent. Storm the overheated streets and stamp a kiss into the steaming pavement with every step you take.
And remember when you’re spreading love wherever you go to memorize these words by the poet Catullus:
Kiss me now a thousand times
And now a hundred more
And then a hundred
And then a thousand more again
‘Til with so many hundred thousand
Kisses you and I shall both lose count
Nor any can from envy of so much kissing
Put his finger on the number
of sweet kisses you of me
and I of you, darling, have had.

Kristen Stewart made a particularly chic appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” wearing a sleek Resort 2016 romper with tuxedo-like details. Also spotted in this on-trend silhouette: Nina Dobrev, who styled some of our favorite Fall pieces to perfection, layering a colorful button up under a little black romper for the Style Watch x Revolve fashion party on the High Line.
The result: two looks that were both true to the stars’ own style, and so DVF!

This season we gave an iconic men’s print a makeover, and the result is a fresh and colorful tweed with an alluring femininity—think Marlene Dietrich or Katharine Hepburn. As a petite print it graces fluttering chiffon. It makes a knitted cameo on a rebellious reverse wrap. And as a true tweed it brightens one of our favorite wear to work silhouettes, the Carrie. There’s no easier way to be chic in an instant than this mini shift dress paired with a classic pump, a crossbody bag and a sleek gold collar. As the weather cools, this shift can be layered with the Emery jacket, also in confetti tweed, the season’s ultimate celebration of color, glamour and confidence!

It’s one of those days. Fall is coming but the days are still warm. An important meeting requires polish. A date requires edge. To top it all off, you run into your ex. Good thing the Bevin dress has you covered. A classic sheath with flattering ruching, it exudes effortless sex appeal and also an air of “I can handle this.” Factor in a pair of heels, a simple cuff and glamorous shades, then finish the look with the ultimate accomplice: The DVF Secret Agent. After work, simply unzip the sleek tweed clutch and polished tote turns playful evening bag. Who knew there were so many tricks up those cap sleeves?

If the new Catherine shirt dress already looks familiar, you may be thinking of its star turn on Karlie Kloss in the “DVF Secret Agent” film. It was also a knockout look on our Fall runway, with its petite, festive print, tuxedo collar, and mixed leather and fabric tie belt. In fact, we love it so much, the Catherine actually inspired a whole series of styles in our “Seduction” collection, from a stunning jumpsuit to an easy skirt that, as Diane says, “flirts with the knee” with its layers of soft chiffon. For after dark, we’re pairing the Catherine dress with the Mika suede heel (with a platform for comfort, and flattering the leg) and zipping the “Agent Karlie” clutch off our DVF Secret Agent bag to travel lightly and colorfully into the night.

We’ve given the classic polo dress a makeover, and the result is the new DVF Sorrel. Our signature printed silk pairs with a ribbed knit back and accents for a chic, comfortable and alluring fit. We love this look for the weekend with a sandal or sneaker, and it’s polished enough to carry you through the work week. With a statement heel and an on-the-go crossbody bag, the DVF Sorrel is the season’s easiest way to button up.

It might be scorching in New York City, but we’re always looking for pieces to go from now to next season. At the top of our current list? The Rayan little black dress. The crossover front is a flattering V but not too low—just right for showing off a modern choker. The easy fit and ruffle pair well with the season’s must-have mule and crossbody bag. The mid-weight fabric will also stand up to tights and boots come fall. It all adds up to a LBD with staying power—that’s the perfect fit for now.
