DVF @ Pre Fall 2014 Grand Canal Collection

DVF Pre Fall 2014 Grand Canal Collection is the richness of Venice meets the glamour of New York. From the black and white of a New York night, she reaches Venice in the afternoon. She travels effortlessly in a banded tunic over flared pants, in colors contoured like the hand-blown glass of Murano.

She switches to a smart bodycon suit with architectural lines that play to her surroundings, She peruses a Venetian Palazzo in a tapestry printed poster dress, with an ombre Sutra duffle in hand.

Embracing the fluidity of light and color, she mixes mod prints in black and white pops of zephyr greens and vibrant pinks, topaz blues and purple rain. The cutout details on an acid grape mini dress evokes the grace of a Gothic facade. an Amelia wrap dress stands out in optic plaid and color contours. Sleek envelope clutches shin in metallic and rich jewel tones.

At sunset, she cruises the Grand Canal. The soft lines of her gown mimic the shadows of the sea as the last bits of light shine through.
