Resort in the City – Catherine McNeil is back once again as the face of Donna Karan, appearing in the label’s resort 2014 advertising campaign.

Donna Karan’s Safari Woman – For spring 2014, Donna Karan looked towards a mix of safari and tribal style for inspiration. With an outing of loose-fitting dresses and skirts, the palette for this collection told a story of earthy tones with deep indigos, neutral nudes and sunny oranges. Layering is key for the Donna Karan woman this season with lightweight jackets and oversized mens shirts. The jungle influence did not just stop there; maxi dresses in natural shades bring an undeniable glamour to the practical yet luxe spring line.
Donna Karan Resort – For her resort 2014 collection, designer Donna Karan focused on separate pieces that toe the line between business casual and beach outing. Tunics in fluid and bohemian shapes showed off a more relaxed side of the Donna Karan woman. Tailored blazers and jackets added structure to chiffon, asymmetrical hemmed skirts and dresses. Karan’s color palette focused on neutral hues such as white, black and tan with the occasional pop of red. Evening wear introduced rich gold and navy hues for a glamorous take on nighttime style. / Photos by Seth Sabal
