We’re wild about ethnic collage, one of the key prints of the Pre-Fall season. A stunning mix, it comes in both black and white and a colorful melange, shown here on the Hathaway peasant top. For fall, we’ll pair this chiffon top with a leather pencil skirt, but we just can’t bear to wait! So we’re wearing it now with an essential slim white jean, and our favorite summer accessories: sandals, shades and a flirty pop of color.

Whether you’re American, Australian, French, Russian, Icelandic or Cuban (and that’s just a smattering of countries who pledge allegiance to the red, white and blue) this particular tricolore salad may tug at your patriotic heartstrings. And that’s quite aside from how perfectly these three colors go together. I can personally attest to this: between my hair, my eyes and my ghostly pallor, it is incredibly wearable (or unavoidable). Added bonus: worn à trois it will also ensure that no one will be able to guess whether you’ve committed to one or the other political party until you’re safely inside the voting booth next fall.
But put all thoughts of elections aside for a moment and think about this lovely weekend just around the bend, and how many clambakes, boule tournaments and sunset cocktails you won’t have to plan for if you just follow my advice below. Friday night all you need to think about is whether you want to wear this denim and lace wrap dress with shoes or without. I’d vote to save them for another outfit, and wear a set of golden bracelets instead, as the dress needs no extra help. And when you decide to jump straight from deck into the ocean for a midnight skinny dip it comes off in a cinch. Thankfully, you can sleep in and wake up just in time for a spot of pétanque, which you’re naturally going to win. A pair of white shorts, a loose tented red shirt (my favorite silhouette of the season), a touch of festive fringe for good luck and you’re set. Bask in your glory all afternoon in nothing but a bikini and a pair of DVF sunnies, and head back to shore for a clambake in our navy knit shirt dress and caramel platform sandals. Another added bonus: you’ll never find the melted butter stains on this print, so don’t bother with a bib and enjoy the balmy evening.

While we hate to pick favorites (especially in the wrap dress family), it’s worth pointing out that the T72 has been a staple in stylish closets since the mid-1970s. This dress looks fresh as ever in our floral of the season, a painterly, oversized print that’s versatile and chic in midnight and white. For summer’s best parties (think polo matches, garden weddings), we’re pairing this wrap with Leah sunglasses, a basketweave clutch, and a mixed print platform for a fun and unexpected bohemian flair.

With its mini length and bold batik print, the Celeste romper is all about the attitude. One of our favorite wrap styles, the Celeste features a collar and button cuffs that contrast its playful hemline. Speaking of contrast, we love to pair the soft, slinky silk jersey with a chunky heel, big shades, and a long crossbody bag that’s perfect for packing light. In our hottest new print, the Celeste is the wrap of the summer.

Black and white and color is one of our favorite ways to dress, and we can’t imagine a better example of the look than our Reina tunic with bright summer accessories. This tunic has an easy, straight shape that’s flattering and comfortable, with a slim long sleeve and a slit v-neck. A true DVF essential, the Reina has been updated for the season in a graphic floral that’s perfect for summer in the city. A crossbody bag in daffodil and leather sandals in a Heritage print are the perfect nod to the sunshine, which brings us to the finishing touch: glamorous shades are always a must!

The wait is over for the party of the year!
The theme of this year’s Met Gala and exhibition is “China: Through the Looking Glass” and we’re thrilled the show features a Qipao-inspired DVF wrap dress in the stunning China vine print.
The grand event also marks the debut of some spectacular custom DVF on the red carpet. For model Gigi Hadid’s first Met Gala appearance, Fall 2015 lace was spun into a butterfly bodice of silk overlayed with hand embroidered lace and appliqué flowers, all in good luck red. With a bias cut silk skirt, straps of individually beaded hand cut lace flowers and a back of sheer embellished lace, Gigi’s look truly steals the spotlight.
Kate Beckinsale’s look reimagines a hand pleated tie neck gown from our Fall collection in gold mesh jersey, with panels of hand embroidered gold lace on the hips and back in the same China vine featured in the show.
Kate Mara’s white crepe gown takes the mandarin collar and mixes it with a plunging twist neckline straight from the runway. Hand beading adds a touch of sparkle to her super chic look.
Last but not least, Diane selected a column of silk jersey in China vine, the colors accented with hand beading against the black and white print. As Diane loves to say, black and white and color is so DVF!

Camila is truly the dress that has it all. Ready for summer, this chiffon style features flattering ruching, the season’s boldest shade, and a high-low skirt that shows off the leg. Plus, the gathered neckline has plenty of stretch, so it can be worn on and off the shoulder, depending on your mood. With easy accessories in cork and suede, the bold Camila may very well be the most versatile style of the season.

You can always count on Miranda Kerr for the best in effortless elegance, and lately she’s been taking her style to great lengths. This week, the model mom was spotted in her go-to wrap dress, a long chain link Abigail, and last week she wore a DVF Pre-Fall maxi while on the go at LAX. We’re ready to pair our favorite floor-length styles with a satchel and sunglasses for our next getaway. From spring weddings to summer travel, there’s a maxi dress for every moment!
