Donna Karan Spring Summer 2014

I’m not surprised that Donna Karan is the first SS14 collection that gets me excited and makes me want to go shopping. I’m not usually a fan of the safari/ethinic themes, but she did it well – it is more like Amazonian babes in the urban jungle than hippies wearing African prints. As for the palette, tones of blue and tan gave the collection an almost casual feel (it make me think of denim and khaki) and that translated to effortlessness, which is a quality I always love in fashion.

I love…

a scarf print skirt, a deep V neck, and a loose jacket – this works.

a mix of shiny and matte in my favourite colour combination: tan and chocolate brown.

I loathe…

these ridiculous scrunchy hats.

    Wow. This really does say ‘designer’ collection – and you can see the quality of the textiles and original prints from the photos alone. I’m assuming they’d be even more impressive in real life. There also appears to be a continuation of an artisanal ‘theme/thread’ from a prior collection that was shot in Haiti which I loved. I which more ‘designers’ were showing at this level, where it is less about fashion trends and more about personal style – but I suppose it takes years of maturity to get here.

    Yes, Donna Karan is certainly not about trends and I love that.
