collection images: donna karan, pre-fall
by Jeremy Danté
a collection based in beige earth tones, the donna karan collection was both casual & sophisticated. leather, layers & length were seen throughout the set with a certain air of masculinity. as the show progressed, lines became more fluid, textiles began to shine as designs in satin led the show to a close. i was very impressed by the use of fur in the collection, it was almost a bit barbaric, the way the garments were pieced together. there is a very mindful attention to the styling of each look with this collection & in many ways challenges your perception to look closer at the details to be able to identify the beauty. though not initially thrilled, in reviewing each look carefully; i love the collection. always a strong direction with the house of donna karan, she continues to thrive as a women designing beautiful clothes for beautiful women.
