Diane von Furstenberg has teamed up with luxury swimwear brand Onia for a new capsule collection which features her heritage prints from the 1970s.
The 72-year-old has previously released swimwear collections via her own label, but this collaboration marks the first time she has worked on a swim line with an outside brand.
Von Furstenberg told WWD she was happy to partner with Onia “and merge our heritage, iconic prints with a modern brand,” before noting that the collaboration will extend into cover-ups and beachwear “as we lead into the height of vacation season” in 2020.
The 2019 resort line features eight styles, which all feature DVF prints on Onia’s signature bikini and one-pieces – including the tie-front Madeline bandeau and the Avery triangle top – with prices ranging from $95 (£72) to $225 (£171).
The capsule collection will also showcase a teal and baby blue reimagining of the label’s classic leopard print, which debuted on the iconic wrap dress back in the early 1970s, along with the classic twigs and lips print, which was influenced by Andy Warhol.
Nathan Romano, co-founder of Onia, said the collaboration began when the brands “connected organically” on Instagram, and confirmed that the partnership will continue “through 2020.”
“It’s been an amazing experience working with Diane and working on in-line prints, alongside some of their archive prints,” he shared.
Onia’s previous collaborations have included capsule lines with We Wore What founder Danielle Bernstein, Theory, Mr Porter, and Every Mother Counts.
The DVF x Onia collection is available now.
