POLISHED + PUT-TOGETHER
New York: Donna Karan touched on many of her signature elements for her current collection. There were draped jersey pieces, a neutral color palette and of course her inimitable drapery. But a polished and put-together feeling set this showing apart; from perfect buns to strands of pearls to hourglass silhouettes, the look was all about sophistication. Bits of fur and glossy satins added a luxurious feeling, and attached chiffon hoods conjured a 50s Grace Kelly-ish glamour. Though perhaps not her most directional collection, Karan’s current offering was filled with appealing pieces that real women will want to wear.
