Donna Karan, who braved Seventh Avenue on her bicycle this morning, showed a lovely Resort collection full of delicate, romantic pieces that might cause a woman on the move to seek a less hazardous mode of transportthe back of a town car, say. "It's sort of boudoir in feeling," Karan explained. The palette was one of soft makeup colors: blushes, pinks, and nudes. These were worked into textural suits and alluring dresses that gently bubbled away from the body or showcased delicate embellishments and bows. Of the breathtakingly pretty sculptural draped gowns in jersey and silk, Karan simply said, "These are fabrics that talk. They tell you what they want to do and you just let them go." You could call it a freewheeling attitude.
