Donna Karan and Diane von Furstenberg Dig In to Dishware Design

Speaking of fashion-y things, as we were in the post previous, there are two designers making the leap over to outlets outside of apparel. Back in February, you might have seen the fruits of the deal Donna Karan had signed with tableware company Lenox the previous fall with the launch of a line of branded dishes, silverware and all other assortment of things that help you get food and drink from the table to your face. Now Diane von Furstenberg has gotten into the same game, with this week’s launch of her own collection for the home, which includes both tabletop items and also bedding. Personally speaking, we think DVF wins this one. We don’t necessarily want to eat off her very brightly patterned plates, but they’re certainly a lot more fun than Karan’s quieter pieces.
