The fashion icon’s granddaughter and budding designer is putting an airy spin on styles for fall
Words by ELIZABETH VARNELL
Dreamy pastel patterns and subtle hues hold sway in Talita von Furstenberg’s second TVF for DVF capsule collection of dresses and separates, a move “meant to bring a bit of happiness and whimsy to a season often encumbered by dark palettes and heavy fabrics,” Talita explains.
The bold choice by the newly minted New Yorker — who grew up in Los Angeles and still eschews pants in her personal wardrobe even when temperatures dip — comes as no surprise to her grandmother, Diane von Furstenberg. “I let Talita do what she wants to do,” notes the fashion icon. “I trust her immensely, she has her own style and her own mind.”
Talita says the new 20-piece collection of functional, feminine designs in a variety of fabrics, from cotton to silk crepe de chine, is inspired by life in the open air. “Even while sitting still within a natural environment, there is constant activity, movement and beauty surrounding you,” she explains. Playful frocks in prints derived from wild florals join romantic solid hues reminiscent of lakes and meadows. The pieces are effortless, and so is, it seems, the generational partnership. “It was meant to be,” confirms the proud matriarch.
