Transposing from DKNY to Donna Karan is a night seeking comparison to daylight breaking in an arctic, urban jungle sheathed for the weather in munificent cuts commencing show, only to break form and fit into a ‘flapper’ era-static designated realm of imagination.
A pinstripe cinched waist number with plunging navel neckline and slanted nouveau cut fedora in an ode to Weiss (Karan’s belated husband); appropriately précis with Donna Karan’s collective, interpreting statement, “his lapel, her body.”
Such drastic novelty referenced modernism in a decadent age of consistent re-elaboration. Pinstripe wool attested to its versatility in the hands of legendary womenswear designer, supplementing traditional form with a one shoulder asymmetrically lent tuck n’ fold knee touching dress.
Strong and boldly diverse necklines held up a streamlined affection; ticking with sharp cuts lining carefully pleated seaming. Cuffs were left without dress shirt entitling menswear rapture for the feminist in Fall 2012.
