Donna Karan brings out the romantic in me so the fact that she showed her collection on Valentine's Day was fitting. Last season I was transfixed by her gold goddess gowns so I must admit, I was concerned about whether she'd be able to match last season's benchmark with her fall collection.
She didn't disappoint. Despite showing a collection in romantic subtle shades like peach, nudes, camels and taupes, the Donna Karan woman this season is far from a shrinking violet. Draped dresses and 50s style dresses nipped in at the waist were feminine but powerful. After in the show notes, Karan said that she aimed to create pieces that would make women command the room.
There was Grace Kelly feeling in the air. Pearls appeared in abundance with pencil skirts and sheer blouses, dresses were fitted showing of a feminine silhouette, gloves appeared and all came over the elbow and shawls were delicately wrapped over models heads.
