DvF On the Big Screen
(NEW YORK) The Daily recently wondered what could be next for Diane von Furstenberg after her recent foray into the music world, but it seems the designer/mogul had her sights equally set on film. The upcoming Gen Art Film Festival (which runs from April 7-13) will debut a movie called Tanner Hall, co-directed and written by von Furstenberg’s daughter Tatiana—and DvF has designed the costumes. A coming-of-age story of four teenage girls in an all-girls boarding school in New England, the film features everything from an affair with a married man to the dramas of “the new girl,” but don’t expect an Education-esque period piece. Tatiana and her co-director/writer, Francesca Gregorini, left the film without a specific era, picking music, costumes, furniture, hairstyles, and cars purposefully taken from different decades to create a sense of timelessness.
Might we see boarding school-chic for DvF’s Spring 2011? We’ll have to wait and see. But between this and Rodarte’s costumes for the upcoming Black Swan, consider the gap between fashion and film just a little bit smaller.
