"A Woman's Voice" was the title of Donna Karan's collection, a return to the constructed, impeccably crafted pieces that every woman needs and wants. Karan's silhouette was fitted yet easy-to-wear: Shoulders were narrow while skirts opened up to full A-lines. Black set the tone for double-face wool coats, tops and pants, but there were also some sharp tweed suits as well as occasional flashes of color: Bright red cashmere sweaters and mohair skirts, aubergine trenchcoats and violet jackets livened up the show. For evening, Karan indulged in velvet cinnamon and raspberry dresses, as well as beaded, airy sequined black and burgundy numbers that were as sexy as they were sophisticated.
