It was all black at Donna Karan, only two other colors popped up during her show – purple and electric blue. But this was a kind of celebration-collection, because the house turned 25 now. Enough reason to look back in black, but not too obvious. Donna Karan stuck with the sculpted tailoring and draped dresses – they were a hit the last two seasons – but she changed the silhouette. It all looked fuller, away from the body-conciousness, also thanks to the dense fabrics she used. The cocoon-coats looked great and comfy and had big sculptural shawl-collars, black and white tweed was mixed with satin and laminated wool looked like a wet pavement. The overall look was modern, powerful and very feminine – and didn’t feel like looking back at all.
