Drawing inspiration from Senegalese textiles, Finnish Marikmekko prints, and Japanese kimonos, Diane von Furstenburg was all about conveying exuberance, optimism, and new beginnings in her Spring collection. The color combinations were beyond uplifting and fresh: bright pastels mixed with muted grays and rusts; high octane reds, blues and greens mixed with aubergine and stark whites. It’s no wonder the show ended with Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good” . . .
