Donna Karan Spring Summer 2015 New York Fashion Week

Donna Karan New York SS15


Turning to the decades that made her famous, the Seventies and Eighties, Donna Karan was inspired by the street art of Keith Haring for her latest collection. The designer took her mission to "paint the town chic" literally by brushing bralettes and pencil skirts with scratchy sketches and vivid paint strokes. Meanwhile, teal and tomato red shirt-dresses were cinched tightly at the waist for an elegant daytime look. Topped with towering hats, this was a line-up that captured the essence of a younger woman than that of seasons past - one who would punch up a Fifties-style midi-skirt with a stomach-baring top - yet there was still plenty to keep the core customer happy, including a chic parade of shift dresses topped with pleated organza skirts.
