Retail Therapy:
Spring Edition

Dad reminded you to be on time for grandma’s birthday… a week in advance (a hair dryer doesn’t break with seven days’ notice, for the record). Your sister texted, claiming mom’s vintage wrap as hers for the month. Your cousin’s registry is completely exhausted in the sub-$1000 range. Yes, it’s the season for family events, those days we love and cherish upon arrival, and dread every minute before. You always feel bad for grumbling your way there, so it’s time for some retail therapy to make spring gatherings something to look forward to.
The solution: Aching feet, great aunt’s comments about modern heel heights… nip it all in the bud with a chic pair of Cambridge flats. The color goes with everything, and a subtle gold trim feels respectful yet festive.
The conversation starter: Between a sleek choker and colorful drop earrings, there is a five percent chance grandma’s first comment won’t relate to relationship status.
The chic sidekick: This little bag will hold your wallet and keys, but let’s be honest—mostly it’s a gorgeous, crossbody iPhone case, since you’ll need it at the ready for Instagramming your awkward baby photos, and covertly texting your sister across the table.
The perfect dress: Skip the party dress for something flattering, happy and ready for warm weather. A bright cotton shirt dress is an ideal choice, and just playful enough for drinks with your sister following the main event. After all, there’s only so much gossip that can be passed under a table!

Diane’s London Luncheon

On Friday, the Mark’s Club was filled with spring flowers and copies of Diane’s memoir in anticipation of an intimate luncheon for some of her London-based friends and collaborators. Elisa Sednaoui, Lucy Williams, Susie Lau, Sabine Getty, Laura Bailey, Noor Fares and more were in attendance, setting the stage for a reunion of the town’s creative set. Guests were greeted with hugs, kisses and, of course, a round of champagne. Then, as the group sat down for tuna tartare and fresh spring greens, the catch up turned to a master course in confidence, as Diane led an open, inspiring conversation on becoming the woman you want to be.

Introducing the Iggy Collection

Summer calls for ethereal dresses, bright colors and the temporary retirement of your favorite black bags. To keep your downtown attitude and style alive in any warm weather look, we’ve launched the Iggy Collection, a family of bags with signature chain hardware on the shapes you want for summer. For the outdoor concert, there’s a petite crossbody saddlebag. For the day out (think: the baseball game that needs sunscreen in inning one, a sweater by inning five) there’s the roomy shoulder bag. And for all your evenings out, there’s a soft clutch with a slide through hand strap, card slots inside, a detachable shoulder strap… literally anything you could need for a summer night on the town!

Collection Focus:
Snake Details

When you love animal prints as much as we do, you find fresh ways to integrate them into every day. For example, our DVF Secret Agent bags can be dressed up with a clutch in leopard-printed snakeskin. Spring’s go-to sandal for everything from errands to weddings is a playful mix of that same printed snake and shimmering gold. And bringing that luxe look to our ready-to-wear, dresses like the ethereal DVF Letty have been trimmed in faux snake, for a similar feel that goes beyond your basic little white dress. Tie them all together with sleek gold jewelry and you have a look that’s ready for garden parties and more.

If you can’t wait to wear this look, scroll through to see how model Alexis Ren styled the DVF Emlyn dress, now in-store, for NYFW in February!

Coachella Dispatch:
The #Chillchella Brunch

Let’s talk about Coachella. The lineups are epic, the outfits are unreal and, these days, the music festival is just the beginning. These weekends in Palm Springs have turned into full-fledged reunions for the modern jetset with parties upon parties leading up to the main event. For a break from the bustle, we hosted an intimate Saturday brunch with Dannijo jewelry and SameSwim at a Palm Springs estate complete with flower-laden pergolas to provide respite from the sun. Dubbed “Chillchella,” the afternoon was a perfect kickoff to the weekend, with DJ Nikki Pennie spinning an eclectic, mellow mix to set the tone while guests, including Emily Ratajkowski, Olivia Culpo, Shea Marie and Andreja Pejic, chatted over coffee, cocktails and a multi-course brunch. As the day came to a close, Caroline Vreeland leaped into the pool, kicking off the playful, buzzing weekend to come.

Treat Yourself:
Tax Day Shopping

It’s Tax Day, sort of. Monday may be the actual panic but since you forgot to change that alert on your phone, we know you woke up thinking about your refund, and thus your refund shopping list. A sudden windfall is quite simply the best reason ever to splurge. And the best thing to splurge on is jewelry, obviously.

Let’s not get crazy though. This woven chain link bracelet is bold and dynamic—and totally sensible for everyday in our signature gold plating (price per wear = practically nothing). Those stunning turquoise earrings and statement necklace? They show off semiprecious stones with luxe texture and color at a price you’d be willing to share with your spouse and/or your financial advisor. And if you owed the IRS this year well, don’t you need something to cheer you up?

Festival Dressing (Coachella tickets optional)

Whether your weekend will be spent living off watermelon in the Palm Desert or catching up on Broad City is completely irrelevant here. Fashion influenced by the music pilgrimage is just part of summer, so here’s your all-in-one packing list/guide to pulling off the trend.
The Record Collection: Your Airbnb has a record player, and who knows what kind of vinyl. Come prepared with prior festival headliners that everyone will love (think AC/DC, Madonna) to get in the mood. Or, if you’re staying home, pick up some Guns N’ Roses, turn the volume to 10 and you’ll get the same general feel.
The Fringe Carryall: This crossbody bag has room for your wallet, camera, sunglasses, another pair of sunglasses, and a water bottle. Plus tons of boho fringe for an easy look all summer long. For Coachella-level fringe quantities, a tassel charm is an approved addition.
The Sunglasses: Obviously sun protection is a must. These shades will also hide your heat-induced mascara melt from everyone’s Snapchats.
The Boho Dress: Every weekend getaway – actually, make that every weekend – needs at least one knockout look. Go full bohemian with this off-the-shoulder dress in a nature-inspired print that’s perfect for festival kickoff parties, and your best friend’s rooftop birthday.
The Day Look: For daytime at the festival, we’ll just remind you they’re forecasting 94 degrees. Go for white pointelle and cotton separates to stay and look cool.
The All Day Sandals: An espadrille platform lends the comfort, while gold leather ties add the flair. If these survive the fields, they’re sure to become your go-to pair for carrying on festival style all summer long.

Color Story:
Coral

April’s new arrivals revolve around a rich coral hue straight from the ocean. That is, after all, what happens when you give a designer inspired by nature an underwater camera! Our favorite Emerson romper is refreshed in the summer-ready shade, or for just a touch, an effortless slide sandal and new aviator bring color to tee shirts and jeans. Continuing that under-the-sea theme in a wearable, modern way, the texture of a starfish has been reimagined in abstract prints on the bias-cut Dita slip dress and our breezy Baylee tank—essential summer styles all brought to life by one brilliant hue.

Those April (Bridal) Showers

For today’s bride-to-be, the photo ops never end. There’s the spontaneous engagement party, the planned engagement party, the bachelorette… by the time you get to the bridal shower, it can be tempting to throw on just about anything. For all things spring (including that shower), we’re enamored with little white dresses finished with touches of eyelet and lace. Simple, timeless and fresh, this DVF Nieves shirt dress reimagines a runway look in geometric lace and light chiffon to make an easy style you’ll look forward to wearing, and return to again and again (unlike that wedding gown—sorry). Accessories with shine – think a lizard purse, a choker, statement earrings and playful flats – contrast the delicate shift for a look that is modern, confident and ready to celebrate!

Find Your Swim Style

Our swim collection is filled with effortless pieces that evoke sun-kissed moments in Malibu, Ipanema, Positano, Mustique… But let’s be honest: finding a swim style that’s all you, and works for your body, is an integral part of a carefree beach season. Our vintage flower power print is a standout on flattering, confident swim silhouettes like the DVF Capri one-piece with cut out details and the petite DVF Amalfi triangle bikini, both in a high-quality Italian fabric with 4-way stretch for comfort and wearability (Read: You won’t be tugging it back into place). Match your suit style to a peekaboo coverup in hand washed Indian cotton lace, whether it’s a classic tunic or a playful romper, and finish the look with your perfect shades, just for safe sunning—you won’t be hiding in these looks!

Must Have:
The Minaudière

The allure of a minaudière is manifold. First off, it’s small, which is essential for any occasion bag (unless of course your occasion is a day at the beach). Because of its petite size, the minaudière is an ideal style for over-the-top embellishments, like a powerstone ring clasp, or allover crystals. The organic shape is easy to hold, and totally timeless; designed to compliment Spring’s bold and colorful gowns and cocktail dresses, these styles will carry into future seasons paired with anything from a little white dress to a black tuxedo. And if you need to juggle your camera, clutch and champagne at a summer wedding, for example, never fear: tucked inside you’ll find a beautiful jewelry-inspired chain to save the day.
