Diane von Furstenberg has spent her entire life looking for inspiration in her designs, but her most influential muse was right in front of her this entire time. It was her very own granddaughter, Talita.
Talita von Furstenberg (aka TVF) may be a doppelganger of her grandmother but the similarities don’t end there. At just 19 years old, she’s completely sure of the women she wants to be — and the one she already is. She’s effortless and elegant. She’s feminine and soft. And most of all? She’s confident and comfortable. So is her brand-new 23-piece capsule collection for DVF!
This affordable collection targets younger fans of the brand and supports #InCharge to help all women find their voice and live boldly in feminine, soft and effortless dresses. TVF will not only honor the heritage of the DVF brand but will look to the future by inserting a fresher, younger vibe into it.
We spoke to Talita about what inspired her for this collection and she gave us her five must-have picks from the collection, including her absolute favorite!
1. This Floral Frock
What It Is: TVF Rosemary Chiffon Mini Dress
Why We Love It: It’s the best of both worlds. From the fitted bodice to the relaxed skirt, this chiffon-viscose blend mini dress is the perfect blend of fun and function. We absolutely love the deep V-neck and intricate detailing. The feminine sheer sleeves with the elastic smocking at its cuffs are swoon-worthy! Also note: it’s just as amazing in this black shade, too!
What The Designer Says: TVF says this dress is “specifically about my two favorite things: flowers and the sea,” which is why this printed floral frock is a must-have. “Flowers and the beach bring me so much joy and inspired most of the prints and the overall vibe of the collection,” she said.
2. This Maxi Dress
What It Is: TVF Lavender Chiffon Maxi Dress
Why We Love It: It’s an easy-to-wear option that’s equal parts feminine and flirty. From the ankle-length to the puff sleeves and perfectly balanced v-neck front, it’s the must-have dress that’s chic and comfortable!
What The Designer Says: This dress looks to be one-of-a-kind. “A lot of fashionable dresses are hard to put on, require a specific shoe or a certain makeup, but sometimes putting in all this effort just makes you feel insecure and you can’t tell if you’re ‘pulling it off’ so to speak,” TVF said. She explained that this dress is game-changing because we “don’t need to think twice about feeling great” when wearing this dress.
3. This Buttercup Dress
What It Is: TVF Buttercup Chiffon Smocked Midi Dress
Why We Love It: This lightweight dress is the ultimate 2-in-1 and the fun and fresh dress our wardrobes are missing. The elastic smocking in the bodice is great when looking for a snugger fit but the easy-fitting skirt and adjustable straps make it as comfortable as it is chic!
What The Designer Says: Keeping perfectly on trend with the collection’s vibe this dress is “feminine, soft and effortless.” Talita said loves this dress because she can unbutton both straps and also wear it as a halter, too.
4. The Tie Dress
What It Is: TVF Petunia Chiffon Midi Dress
Why We Love It: It’s the lightweight option that can easily transition from day to night. The midi dress features a fitted bodice and easy-fitting lined skirt that highlights a modern straight necklace. The adjustable straps and hidden back-zip entry compliment the detachable belt brilliantly, too!
What The Designer Says: TVF said all the prints in the collection are “inspired by nature” but on a much more personal level for the designer since the patterns each have a “backstory that connects [her] with a memory.” TVF said she was obsessed with seashells as a young girl and had quite the collection from all of her family trips. “I’ve always been obsessed with shells since each one has a uniquely beautiful pattern,” she said. “So when I see this print I think of my family and our lovely travels together.”
5. This Ruffle Dress
What It Is: TVF Snowdrop Tiered Chiffon Dress
Why We Love It: This easy-to-wear dress is fun and flirty in all the right places! The A-line minidress fabulously features sheer sleeves with a lined body, that is so brilliantly blended with a tiered skirt. Whether worn with strappy heel sandals or sneakers (Talita’s personal favorite!), it’s as swoon-worthy as ever!
What The Designer Says: Most of the clothes are “really girly and flirty,” but TVF says this dress is her favorite of them all! “I had to choose one piece it would be the TVF Snowdrop dress in black and white,” she said. Looking for the TVF-approved styling? That’s simple! “I would wear it with a pair of silver heels and a black purse,” she said.
