The Donna Karan fashion show for Fall 2013 just closed in New York City. One cannot help but think that this woman has more intuition in one of her little fingers for what makes a woman feel sexy and elegant that most designers have in their whole body and soul.
It seems that with Karan and her ever-constant mantra of regeneration and evolution the proof as they say is in the pudding. Well into her sixties, the woman gets it, and that explains the hard-core client base that swears by her, the show opened with some of the most sensational pieces and ensembles in black that we have seen so far, Coats and jackets with the exact volumes and proportions that did not sacrifice sensuality and refinement for form and fit. Dresses lay closer to the body, without being vulgar but rather alluring and elegantly draped in bias hemlines and accented with bold bib necklaces.
Jersey seemed to be the fabric of choice for the season and no one does it better than Karan, trimmed it the lightest leather nape in some instances in some dresses serving as a magic wrapping that leaved uncovered mid drift sections: for the adventurous woman a show stopping way to make an entrance .
Chocolate and earth tones with mineral metallic under hues created a rich palette very reminiscent of the patinas of antique bronze sculptures: Unearthed goddesses that sprung for the depth of a fertile soil to bloom into sensual apparitions. Tribal, spiritual, transforming, always elegant never forced or too literal, ephemeral and yet defined in all forms and measures, the creation where a testament to a life spent pursuing the fleeting and yet everlasting quality of graceful elegance as it transcend life itself and the passing of time.
