Let DVF Transform Your Wardrobe


Like everyone into prints, ’70s glamour and simply flattering clothes, we’re a little infatuated with Diane von Furstenberg, returning to Gilt today for an all-out fashion takeover.

It’s true, the New York designer’s iconic wrap dress created a revolution in the workplace, but what we love about DVF is how she’s kept herself consistently cool, connecting her brand to confident women of today with everyday pieces that enliven and transform your wardrobe.

With a new memoir out and a reality show premièring this Sunday on E!, it’s the perfect time to get in on all the style maven has to offer, from fun patterns and bold colors to daring accessories and day-to-night everything.

A Day in the Life of Timo Weiland (& Design Partner Alan Eckstein)

You may not have heard of this design duo yet, but Anna Wintour and Diane von Furstenberg have. They were part of a committee that selected Weiland and Eckstein (who co-helm the Timo Weiland brand) for the CFDA incubator program — a prestigious honor previously held by the likes of Prabal Gurung and Sophie Theallet — and an outline of their busy lives couldn’t be more indicative of their on-the-cusp status, from rubbing elbows with the doyenne of downtown fashion herself, Mrs. von Furstenberg, to spinning their favorite rock hits (from punk to glam) at the Jane Hotel’s rooftop for a weekly DJ gig.

We asked the two, who share a common admiration for Dries Van Noten (“always an ongoing love and inspiration”) and are rarely apart, to chronicle a typical Thursday for us with a few candid camera phone snaps. Here’s what we got!

Go Behind the Scenes of Gilt’s Fun Photoshoot at DVF’s Gorgeous NYC Showroom!

Not only has Diane von Furstenberg created one of the most iconic garments in modern history with her famed wrap dress — she’s also created one of the most recognizable spaces in Manhattan with her combination store-studio-private residence on the corner of w. 14th Street and Washington Avenue in the Meatpacking District.

So we were thrilled when we were invited to shoot inside the 5,000-square-foot space for our upcoming DVF sale on Gilt.com! Designed by WORK Architecture, the centerpiece of the studio is the “stairdelier,” a stunning design made of Swarovski crystals that fills the entire white space with sparkling light.

Another highlight of the space is von Furstenberg’s art collection, which is so packed with important works that it has even gone on a global tour courtesy of Pace Gallery.

Our amazing creative team loved shooting in the space and pairing the designer’s fabulous clothing with her equally fabulous space. Click through our behind-the-scenes mini-magazine above, and then shop the Diane von Furstenberg sale — featuring everything from clothing to shoes to handbags to swim to luggage — on April 26, at noon ET, on Gilt.com.
