Clever Couture: Donna Karen from catwalk to high street
Published 04/06/2010 | 05:00
A palette of pale neutrals is like a breath of fresh air in summer. Donna Karan's current collection is full of blush tones and chalky greys. Inspired by windswept movement, she uses ethereal chiffons and light jerseys.
Draped on the body, the shapes are deceptively simple but on closer inspection, they hug each curve in exactly the right way to make them sizzlingly sexy. Even her more tailored pieces have a sense of fluidity about them that give a sense of gentle femininity. This full-length gown in arctic white is a real statement piece. With a hint of Grecian goddess about it, this look is incredibly decadent and needs nothing more than buffed skin and a pair of killer heels.
