Donna Karan - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2008
Classic, girly chic met the redefined power suit in Donna Karan's collection for spring, an homage to the multicultural influences shaping Manhattan style. The predominantly nude, khaki, and white collection was peppered with instances of red and blue in dresses and wide billowy skirts. Karan employed thick belts to distinguish waists and accentuated legs with unbuttoned open skirts. Elegant collars on tops and halter dresses opened to show off shoulders and necklines, proving the designer pulled off the inspiration of a woman at once sensual and strong.
