“You put the intention in the universe and things happen and that’s what we have done,” said DVF this morning as she and Creative Director Yvan Mispelaere discussed the Spring 2012 Collection, debuted Sunday at Lincoln Center. Still radiant in bright purple after many late nights leading up to the show, she couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. “Yesterday was the real integration of Yvan and the brand,” she continued, “The collection is practical and effortless and that is what we stand for.”
The show itself was a star-studded affair, with Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Rachel Zoe, Susan Sarandon in DVF, Fran Lebowitz, Tina Brown and Poppy Delevigne looking on as the first model emerged, a vision of white in a crisp cotton shirt wrap dress; a clean slate on which to draw Beginnings. What followed was an homage to renewal and hope, with fresh white giving way to dusty neutrals and stony grays punctuated by vibrant pastels that intensified into deep violet, indigo blue, blood orange and painterly prints as the show progressed, all culminating in a luminescent blur of sheer sequins for evening. “The light appears and everything changes,” said DVF and Yvan.
Post-show, the DVF team celebrated at Indochine, where guests sipped mojitos and listened to impromptu remarks from dinner guest Mayor Bloomberg. DVF was honored to have Bloomberg join on such a momentous day in New York’s history.
“It’s important to remember,” said DVF, who handed out American flags in honor of the tenth anniversary of September 11th as she and Yvan took their bow. A donation was also made in the name of each show attendee to the September 11th Families’ Association.
