DIANE VON FURSTENBERG
In 1972, Diane von Furstenberg created the “wrap dress”—a form-fitting knit jersey blend that was an immediate classic. In 1976, Newsweek declared Diane “the most marketable female in fashion since Coco Chanel.” Thirty-five years later, she’s at the pinnacle of international fashion. Step into her Meatpacking District shop, which wraps around a covetable corner just like one of her frocks and experience 2,100 square feet of feminine fun with pink couches and circular mirrors spread across the ceiling like disco-ball lights. The clothes echo the store’s energy: Vintage prints, colorful swimwear, office-ready black skirts with high waists and of course, her iconic wrap dresses. The store also carries a selection of the Diane von Furstenberg by H.Stern jewelry collection (fat chain bracelets and impressive cocktail rings), handbags, shoes and silk jersey scarves.
