(NEW YORK) Diane von Furstenberg called her Fall 2009 collection “Nomad,” which, according to Steven Kolb, related back to her own life. “I said to her in the car yesterday, ‘How come every collection you make is for a woman that’s on the go?’” he said. “She says, ‘Am I ever around? I’m always moving!’…With her collection, it’s just an easy thing, throw it in a bag and go.” The magpie-esque collection was a departure from DVF’s usual polish, with messy layers and mixed prints like leopard and camouflage, all topped with dramatic knit pom-pom caps. Super-trendy pieces like leather leggings and feathered skirts also made appearances. Though the styling may be a bit scary for the average DVF customer, the collection was also filled with soon-to-be-bestselling pieces like cocoon coats, cozy cardigans, and shift dresses.
