Two of my all time faves are in the line up today. They are Thakoon and Diane Von Furstenburg, DVF. If I were reborn, I would be draped in Thakoon with lush DFV outwear, shoes and accessories. I can’t get enough of the extra fabric, pockets, colors and style, not to mention this years pairing of fashion and technology. Here are some of the Thakoon Instagram photos 3 hours before show time.

Ridiculously excited for the DVF show @ 4:00pm. DVF has paired with #projectglass to share the Spring 2013 show through her eyes. #DVFthroughglasses. Here is a little more about the glasses and Google’s project glass.
If Google’s Glass(es) are going to ever gain main stream acceptance, they will have to be seen as not only something acceptable to wear in public but something fashionable. To that end, Google is teaming up with renowned designer Diane von Furstenberg on a project documenting the creative process leading up to a fashion show. On September 13th, the two companies will release a video of the project on the DVF Google+ page and Google’s YouTube channel.
In a statement, Diane von Furstenberg said, “I am so excited to introduce Glass to the fashion world and use this revolutionary technology to give everyone a unique perspective into fashion.” Sergey Brin, Google co-founder and head of Project X which oversees projects like Google Glass and driverless cars, said, “Beauty, style and comfort are as important to Glass as the latest technology. We are delighted to bring Glass to the runway together with DVF.”
WWD spotted Brin and Wife Anne Wojcicki with DVF yesterday.
