I'm not familiar with Donna Karan's work from the 80's and 90's so this next statement will seem rather incredulous but this is possibly her best work. From the first look I fell in love. The collection featured washed linen jackets with soft rounded shoulders, skirts with a side split over-skirt and textural fabrics in light grey and chalk that you just want to touch. buttons, zippers and other fastenings were banished, leaving cloth, colour and sihouette to really shine. Call me ignorant but I wasn't aware of the organic nature of her work, most evident in the way she drapes, wraps and ties. This was such a heavenly, calm collection, a highlight of New York fashion week.
