Right down to the pencil straight hair and oversized sunglasses, this season’s DVF collection is pure Seventies sophistication. Rusty oranges and yellows, maroons and deep greens, popping turquoise, and some neutral shades, were crafted into a streamlined, crisp, and clean daywear-focused collection.
