The Draped Silhouette – For Donna Karan’s pre-fall 2013 collection, the American designer focuses on structure and voluminous shapes for the transitional season. A neutral color palette of black, ashen grey and ivory hues complement the draped, cocoon-like shapes of Karan’s outerwear pieces. The sculpted jackets are contrasted by body-conscious, feminine silhouettes including pencil and circle-skirts. Evening wear looks remain demure with lengthened, sometimes sheer skirts and cropped silk tops. / Photos by Seth Sabal, Styling by Nicoletta Santoro

Day to Night – For resort 2013, Donna Karan embraces an array of elegant skirts and dresses which are as practical as they are stylish. Modeled by Josefien Rodermans, Josephine Skriver, Madison Headrick and Romee Strijd, the new collection is steeped in a color palette of traditional black and white, silvery grey, taupe and vibrant pink. Silhouettes for the transitional season are ladylike, accentuating the waist or bust-line. Embellished with crystals or fringe, Karan’s resort line encompasses all the wardrobe essentials for event-goers. / Photos by Seth Sabal, Styling by Nicoletta Santoro
Donna Karan’s Strong Suiting – Last season it was the country of Haiti that inspired Donna Karan’s namesake line, and for fall 2012 it is the confidence and allure of woman–even in the menswear dominated field of suiting–which influenced the American designer’s latest collection. A color palette of grey, red and black was offered on the runway with models donning pinstripes, mohair and jersey in sharply tailored shapes. Outerwear also had a masculine influence made of boxy silhouettes and strong shoulders. Saving a sense of ultra-femininity until the end, Karan closed the show with drapey silhouettes that showcased bare arms and legs in slinky fabric.
