Introducing the frock that turned fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg into a household name. Legend goes that, in 1974, Diane released her very first line of wrap dresses—swingy, clingy, ultra-flattering pieces made in silk jersey and created to cling coquettishly to a woman's every curve. They were an absolute sensation, worn by ladies to anything and everything, from office hours to languid days on the beach. Easily a sartorial symbol of the decade's feminism and liberation, we'd say it's 100% back...but did it ever really leave?
