Donna Karan Designs “Graceful” Collection.

Donna Karan is one ambitious woman. Every season she designs two…count um …two separate collections for New York Fashion Week. Her very upscale “luxury collection” is appropriately names Donna Karan, and her secondary line which evokes a very hip, uber chic and trendy look is named DKNY.  Donna presented both collections this week and true to form the Donna Karan Label was exquisitely designed with fabrications that literally flowed over and around the body. I have always said that nobody… but nobody, drapes fabric better than Donna Karan.

I often wonder when I view a collection where the design inspiration comes from? This Fall 2011 collection for the Donna Karan label had me thinking that perhaps Donna was channeling, Grace Kelly in her heyday (think 1950’s Hollywood starlet and early days-Princess of Monaco). Look closely and see if you don’t notice Grace Kelly “signature pieces” within the Donna Karan Label: the long scarf wrapped around the neck, the structured handbag, the simple lines of the wrapped coat and the cinched in waist on her jackets. All so beautiful. All so well constructed. All so GRACE – FUL!!!!
