Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2013 Runway Review

Despite being one of the most established "old school" designers, Diane von Furstenberg is incredibly forward thinking and in an astute move, she incorporated Google glasses into her runway show this year. Called Glass, the glass-less glasses are designed to capture the wearer’s experiences. In addition to model Hanne Gaby Odiele and Google co-founder Sergey Brin, the designer herself wore the glasses to capture her experience. On September 13, the images each of the wearers saw will be compiled into a short film and shown on DVF’s official YouTube page. You can also get a behind-the-scenes look on the official DVF Google+ page now.

As for the designer's spring lineup, it was so fantastically vibrant it gave me anxiety about the looming winter. Saturated and bright shades of green, yellow, orange, turquoise, and pink made for flowing summer dresses and easy separates (think casual cropped trousers, relaxed blazers, and tunic tops). Prints and neutrals were also present, featured mostly in loosely fitted silhouettes for a lively collection brimming with movement.
