(NEW YORK) Donna Karan
For her 25th anniversary show, Donna Karan emphasized the bare basics (black, that is) and told her quarter-century story through powerful, architecturally-inspired pieces created out of wool organza, tweed, and opulent shearlings. The lack of color was a surprising creative choice for such a significant show, but dramatic gowns with spiral-cut layers and sculpted jackets are certain to satisfy her core costumer's cravings. It felt like a confident and assured master display, though seldom colorful numbers (like Sasha’s magenta showstopper) had us itching for more.
