“I travel light. I think the most important thing is to be in a good mood and enjoy life, wherever you are.” –Diane von Furstenberg
I’m drawn to Belgian-American designer’s Diane Von Furstenberg’s unfussy, feminine ready-to-wear collection. One could certainly travel light in one of her ubiquitiuous jersey dresses. Finding a dress today that’s both feminine and classy, and work appropriate, is a challenge. I think one of her dresses in either silk jersey or cashmere would make a nice addition to my wardrobe and I bet they travel well. Some of her older designs are for sale on Etsy and Ebay, though I’m suspicious I’d end up buying something from a mothball filled house.
I read an article about DVF in the Telegraph that she designed the dress because it was easy to put back on after an evening rendez-vous when she wanted to sneak back home. This was the 1970s…!
