Always a bit of a gypsy at heart, Diane von Furstenberg drew on a series of exotic wanderings for spring. The Nile, the desert, Orientalists and Indian temples were among the far-flung references that came together in a collection rich with bohemian beauty. “She’s a desert queen,” said von Furstenberg in a preview of her girl, who, if the house-made painted laurel headpieces were any indication, also had a Greco-Roman thing going on. Then again, antiquity was yet another of von Furstenberg’s fixations; the late 19th-century painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema, who focused on classical images, fueled the color scheme of copper, gold, blue and green done with a dusty finish. They were sexy and striking on mix and match prints — some graphic, some feral — and pretty on fresh florals. As much as prints are a house signature, so have pilings become, here as a coat and vest belted over a dress and colorful woven bangles stacked on both wrists. There were some separates — T-shirts, toppers and a few jodhpurs. But there was no shortage of dresses, which ranged from macrame shifts to wispy chiffons draped and gathered for the modern day goddess. Beading, sequins and fringe only heightened the feminine feeling. This is DVF, after all, and as she put it, “I try to be masculine, but I can’t help but be odalisque.”
