Diane by DVF, For What? Magazine

 
 

Women love women, who love women; and before you get excited and go thinking that I’m writing about some sexy girl-on-girl exploits…I’m not.

I’m writing about something else equally curvaceous and appealing to the senses - designer Diane von Furstenberg; a woman who knows women, is loved by women and celebrates being a woman.

There’s a good reason it’s impossible not to look fabulous in one of her signature wrap dresses…because Ms. Furstenberg understands what it means to be one of us complex, feminine creatures.

Girl/woman, soft/strong, feminine/masculine these are all tugs of war that perpetrate a woman’s being…usually on a daily basis.

So when I heard about the new fragrance Diane, I wondered which facet of the female Ms. Furstenberg had encapsulated; I’m delighted that it turned out to be a seductive one

Diane is not offensive, or abrasive; she is not complicated or perplexing, nor strange or intriguing;

Diane is simple, soft, sophisticated and above all, Diane is sensual.

With delicate Fragipani and Violet leading the floral way, Diane firstly embraces you in her ultra-feminine arms and then caresses you with familiar warmth that resonates with reassurance.

Because Diane is all woman there is more to her than flippant flowers; she is driven by myrrh, musk and patchouli, lending her vibrancy, passion and depth.

She is not a loud, brash or flamboyant lady; she is not edgy, bizarre or try-hard.

Diane is quietly-confident, effortlessly chic, self-assured, unfaltering in her sense of self-worth and classic to the last drop,.

Diane is the kind of woman, most women want to be.
