Building a Mystery

DVF was ready to Rendez-vous today as we showed our Fall/Winter 2012 Collection under the tents at Lincoln Center.

Lights flashed from the pit as DVFaithfuls Rachel Zoe, Molly Sims, Solange Knowles, Gia Coppola, Giovanna Battaglia, Fabiola Beracasa, Coco Brandolini, Elletra Wiedemann, Anderson Cooper, Graydon Carter, Oscar de la Renta and Barbara Walters took their front row seats.

The anticipation of the onlookers was reflected on the runway itself, with a collection inspired by those moments of expectation and suspense that lead up to a Rendez-Vous.

“It is all about mystery,” said Diane, wearing a bright chartreuse top over a sleek black pencil skirt, finished with a bright fuschia belt.

She flashed a wink as she sprayed DIANE the fragrance down the runway just before dress rehearsal, with the same air of mischief Creative Director Yvan Mispelaere alluded to when describing the woman who inspired this collection.

“She’s on her way…she is ready for anything and there is something a little bit dangerous about her.”

Second skin sequins, sleek pencil skirts, shining trenches and billowing dresses all came together in a surreal vision of roseberries and scarlet reds, seafoam greens and deep lapis blues.

Accessories were playful with a touch of humor: from a cherry red round leather clutch, to a refined Harper daybag refreshed with fur, and a bright envelope clutch embellished with a pair of lips. Metallic heeled booties and ankle strap pumps added just the right amount of edge.

In other words, this Rendez-Vous was all about expectations, and it’s safe to say they were met.

First Edition

Model, actress and newly appointed host of Project Accessory, Molly Sims reveals her Fall bag secrets!


Inside DVF: What do you look for in a bag?

Molly Sims: To fit a lot…and to look chic.  So I guess that means function and form!

DVF: What do you always keep in your bag no matter what?

MS: Lip gloss, pink blush, a pen (I’m always jotting notes…), and just before the wedding, a lot of planning stuff!

DVF: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever found at the bottom of your bag?

MS: I don’t know about crazy, but crumbs from a protein bar are never a fun surprise…

DVF: Do you always match your bag to your shoes?

MS: No – I prefer not to be too matchy-matchy.

DVF: Is there something you wish you always had in your bag but never seem to?

MS: Advil! You never know when you might need one but I never seem to have one handy….

DVF: What is your bag style? Do you keep it organized, or just throw everything in there?

MS: I’m VERY organized in all facets of my life, but I think women’s bags are like kitchen sinks. Everything gets dumped in there…I love my DVF Harper because it conceals it all! But there is a method to the madness, I believe.

DVF: What is your biggest bag pet-peeve?

MS: A lot of logos. I like subtle.

DVF: Do you change bags with the season?

MS: I change bags when the mood strikes me!
