If you associate Diane von Furstenberg with a decade no doubt that decade would be the seventies. Which makes this 1950s stripe bedding from her home collection something of a surprise, but no less attractive for it.
Twenties and thirties inspired fashion is all about clean lines and structure, and the use of art deco inspiration has persisted through many eras to create some classic items. This Harri Clutch by Diane von Furstenberg has an effortless retro style that's timeless enough to pair with a wide variety of looks.
Workwear rails in most high street shops would have us all consigned to a life of ill-fitting blazers and suit pieces in a variety of drab colours. However, turning to retro designs can be just the antidote, achieving that balance between conservatism and style in your day wardrobe.
This Newsy Dress by Diane von Furstenberg is a perfect piece of stylish daywear, using a shirt dress shape to create a suitably formal silhouette, the graphic seventies-inspired print ensures there's nothing dull about it. Made from a 100% silk fabric, the colours are vibrant and head-turning, while the luxurious material allows for the shape to skim the figure in the most flattering fashion.

To easily achieve a genuine vintage look from any outfit, accessories are often the quickest and most effective way, regardless of the trend you are tapping into. This Peaked Cloche Hat from Diane von Furstenberg lends an instantly sixties feel to any outfit, without lacking subtlety or classic looks.
The hat takes a classically pre-War cloche style and gives it a sixties update, with a more structural shape and the addition of a pageboy style short peak. Finished in a luxurious burgundy felt fabric, with gold hardware, the result is a piece that captures all that felt modern and chic in the sixties.
It's available online from Matches Fashion for £125.
Who better to turn to for seventies revivalist fashion that the designers who made their name in the decade itself? That's the key to the great looks of Diane von Furstenberg's latest designs, like this Jafar Silk Shirt Dress with its pitch perfect seventies looks.
The relaxed fit of the dress is key to its high end, luxurious feel, using a rich silk fabric that creates femininity out of the menswear-inspired shirt design. The use of a true seventies-glam tan shade adds a hint of that much-loved Riviera style, with a waist-cinching belt to tie it all together.
It's available online in the UK from Net-a-Porter for £400.
