Runway Report: DVF Fall 2017

Held within a gallery in midtown west, Jonathan Saunders presented a mix of vibrant colors in eclectic standout separates and trend-setting outerwear that were bountiful with texture and movement (with the help of some well-placed paillettes and bias-cut dresses, DVF staples as far as we’re concerned), perfect for dancing the night away for his sophomore collection.

While one room held accessories like calf hair neon pink fold over cross bodies, silk scarves, leopard printed circular mini bags and fluffy sky blue faux fur collars, the other presented the range of models who looked both sexy and luxurious in the Fall 2017 collection. One reason this mix seemed so effortless? Layering. A keen eye for mixing prints and colors created a dichotomy within each ensemble. For example, one of our favorite looks mixed thigh-high gold and navy pointed-toe boots with a black and white hand-drawn line printed dress which was perfectly accessorized with a wrap around black belt, a single chandelier earring, blue choker scarf and a saddle bag with tassel detail. Sure, it sounds like a lot, but it worked, and that’s what made each look so impressive.

Another winner? A cropped furry camel coat with a gray ombre faux collar paired with a black and yellow fluid skirt, a tight to the body sky black, blue and white braided bag and plum embossed ankle boots. Needless to say, there’s no way you couldn’t find something to love to add to your wardrobe come September. So, start saving.
