The Inspiration: Diane on Oasis

February 06, 2014

What was your inspiration behind the collection?

This collection is called Oasis and it is all about an unexpected source of beauty and finding peace within yourself…this idea that a woman can be her own Oasis. It is confident and sexy…urban safari meets desert nights with a lot of black and white and beautiful landscape prints.

For the campaign, this is the second time you have worked with Daria Werbowy. Tell us more about that.

Daria has such a strength about her…which is perfect for Oasis. She has such a mystery and she is sexy and effortless. That is so DVF.

What are you favorite looks or must-have pieces of the season?

I love and have worn the tunic set in zebra print…it is practical and great for traveling but also glamorous. The poster dress with a chic desert print is another favorite and the corset tops are sexy and fun. The cocoon coat in leopard jacquard is also fabulous !

How would you describe the prints and colors?

The palette is grounded in a black and white Jungle Diamond print with desert neutrals and gold flecked cork. As we move into the season, you will see a lot of blue and white with pops of orange and beautiful landscape prints with bright corals.

What are the key accessories of the season?

It is still about the Sutra and this season it is fabulous with leather and lacing details and chic animal prints.

And if you had to pick just one statement piece for Spring?

The Amelia is so fresh and it’s the year of the wrap so I say go for it !
