Donna Karan’s streamlined S/S 2013 collection was the direct reflection of a city scape. Models dressed in spiraled architectural layers; sleek, crisp cropped jackets, and shades of steel-gray were the personification of skyscrapers and glass windows. Sharp lines on jackets as well as deep v-necks and asymmetrical necklines had a distinct architectural feel while fluid jersey represented the rippling reflections of water on a buildings glass windows. Draped dresses and softer shades of pink, gold and orange, painted the collections skyline with a sunrise and sunset. Below-the-knee length dresses and skirts I feel keeps the collection simple and understated, drawing attention from the lines and construction of the garments rather than from the sex appeal of revealed skin and a woman’s shapely contour.

Jersey, linen, glazed suede, supple leather and chiffon were used as the perfect backdrop to construct each of Karan’s well thought-out designs. Lucite headpieces and cuffs along with mirrored clutches were inspired by glass windows and watery blue reflections. Rope knotted sandals added structure and texture to an otherwise airy collection. A pale face, pink and almost blood-shot shadow on the eyes and messy bun completed a look that let the clothes speak for themselves, yet complimented the idea of a city that never sleeps. It’s the attention to detail that makes this collection so cohesive.
