The shirt and the skirt. The sportswear staples provided the foundation for Donna Karan’s elegant pre-fall, for a look that she riffed on in several ways. For a precise rendering, a crisp white shirt with a plunging neckline was shown with a languid black pleated skirt. More textured, luxe interpretations included a silky white V-neck with a white skirt featuring cutouts and artfully-placed beads.
The rich feeling extended to evening with several slinky gowns, one with just the right amount of gold sequins. The outerwear pieces, such as the tailored coat with painterly gold brushstrokes, were equally chic.
