Donna Karan reworked familiar inspirations this season—Indochine glamour and Asian weaves with the steamy seduction of New York—to create a mix of tailored, constructed jackets and suits and featherweight layered chiffon dresses.

Her show opened with a series of caviar pinstriped pencil skirts, tailored jackets and cocoon coats perfect for Karan's working woman, who is always on the hunt for pared-down yet luxurious staples. Jersey tie-front dresses, layered over champagne slips, revealed a more playful side to her collection; the same can be said for her liquid satin looks, intended for after-five cocktails.

Karan's finale was the most eye-catching part of the show: tangerine, lilac and peach beaded gowns escalated into burnt sienna pleated numbers and finally climaxed with the stunning strapless flame orange organza dress with which Shalom Harlow closed the show.
