Leave it to Vogue's Editor at Large, Andre Leon Talley, to make the connection between Diane Von Furstenberg's Spring '07 ready-to-wear collection and the legendary traveling exhibit, Quilts of Gee's Bend.
Both are splashed with eye popping colors and whimsical patterns capable of brightening any day.
I saw the quilts at Atlanta's High Museum last spring, and was taken by the unique color palates and patterns as well as the stories behind the designs and the unexpected use of materials (including previously worn dresses and blue jeans!).
Unsurprisingly, I'm also quite fond of DVF's spring collection of colorful, fun, feminine classics.
Diane Von Furstenberg and the Quilts of Gee's Bend: American craft at its finest!
