Fashion: A warm Current is blowing in
For those looking to brighten up their wardrobe for spring without straying too far into unknown territory, the news of a collaboration between designer Diane von Furstenberg and cult denim label Current/Elliott will come as a relief. DVF's signature vintage-style floral and feminine prints will liven up jackets, jeans and skirts made from the brand's trademark cotton-soft twill to create the perfect accompaniment to the warmer weather everyone has their fingers crossed for. Launches in March
