If it were possible, as in financially feasible, not physically possible, I would overhaul all of the cream, black, and gray suits in my closet, discard them where some other drained and tediously tired young professional can reap the benefits of looking sharp, but not too sharp, and replace them with the wild and wonderful patterns of the genius dame, Diane von Furstenberg. Her work is always recognizably iconic, and this resort collection did not stray from her foundations: whimsical draping, a playful approach to current trends, bold colors, and even bolder patterns and accessories. Certainly not for the faint of heart, rather, for the bodacious broad, who wants to be enveloped in a rainbow noise. The kimono-inspired quintessential wrap dresses, the soft silken fabrics juxtaposed with haphazardly delicate patterns, the bug-goggle sunglasses all seem to strut a bizarrely fine line between resort relaxation and professional woman on the move. I am definitely not want to shirk from the power of some stacked bangles, but the bangle wrist armor in the last look puts my most grand forearm display to shame.
