Donna Karan presented her secondary line at the Dia Center for the Arts, ushering groups of guests into the gallery space where models took to the catwalk every half-hour or so in what amounted to a revolving party.
Men's suiting was an important influence, as Karan showed oversize pinstripe blazers, stark masculine chemises, a billowy tan trench, and basic suits livened up with matte copper paillette tops.
A disheveled tulle skirt was paired with a strapless leather bustieran unavoidable nod to the '80s. Young girls will love the shimmering hot pants and powder-blue beaded minidresses; the older crowd will stick with true-and-tried basics. Most of Karan's looks featured wide leather belts worn at the hipa look that is already emerging as one of the key trends for the season.
