Early 2000s Diane von Furstenburg Purple Print Silk Jersey Wrap Dress
The DVF wrap dress came into being in 1973 and has been a staple since. Examples are held at The Met and their note on it states: "Diane von Furstenberg introduced her signature wrap dress in 1973. The simple style was affordable and adaptable, combining the versatility of sportswear with the chic of a flattering dress. Easy to wear, the design became a fashion phenomenon and a large selection of graphic prints kept the style fresh and in demand. Von Furstenberg wrote: “I was sure there was a need for simple little sexy dresses that made women feel like women.” This more recent Diane Von Furstenberg dress is wonderful. It is made from a printed silk jersey in muted soft purple tones done in a chevron print set in rows over the surface of the dress. The skinny fit top wraps to close in her signature style with a plunging neck with a high set collar. This is balanced by long, skinny sleeves. The skirt is cut sleek and hugs your curves. Wearing a Diane Von Furstenberg design is appropriate for almost any event or occasion that may arise. Which is probably exactly why they are one of the must haves in any girl's closet.
