Donna Karan Fall 2014

Donna Karan is usually a show I really look forward to but this season it was very disappointing. While there were a lot of her signature dresses and slick tailoring, the show featured a lot of inappropriate sheers, lots of leg, and too many no pants situations. While this is usually “acceptable” coming from other designers, I always turn to Donna Karan for beautiful clothing that women can actually wear, so when I find the catwalk full of underboob and outfits lacking in pants, I’m not very impressed.

I love…

a wool dress with lots of interesting design features.

I loathe…

when Donna Karan looks like Jean Paul Gaultier.

random tufts of white fur. This looks like Sesame Street on drugs.

sheer dresses. This isn’t really what the Donna Karan woman wears. Give us a lining, please.
