Donna Karan’s Spring 2010 show sticks to a determined color palette. It expands its collection by presenting pieces in various shades of a few colors. I think come Spring that this collection will make getting ready in the morning quite a bit more fun. This year we see sheer grays, solid whites, and bold reds. The sheer grays provide a peek of what’s underneath, while the solid whites leave everything to the imagination, but the bold reds…you make that decision.
Her two piece sets look perfect for that day at the office when you really want to woo clients or close a deal.
The knee-length dresses are great for cocktail parties, exposing shoulders and leaving space for either a tight up-do, or loosely flowing curls.
Dresses, blazers, and belted-jackets feature deep v-shaped décolletage exposing enough when necessary.
Skirts are close to the body, beginning wide at the hips and narrowing down as they descend to the knees.
Pieces of the collection to highlight include the standout, vibrant red dress featuring DKNY’s recurring deep neck lines, shallow pockets, and matching overlay; and the two piece snake print white suit, with fold over opening and light gray tie-up chiffon belt.
