Donna Karan

Grace Jones snoods met ladylike proportions and curve-accentuating tailoring at Donna Karan

The look Grace Jones snoods met ladylike proportions and curve-accentuating tailoring at Donna Karan.

Key pieces Fur trims on gloves and three quarter-length sleeves injected luxury, as did high-shine satins and draped necklines. Skinny belts were teamed with extra-long tapered trousers. The palette wove from tobacco to midnight blue to dove grey.

Commercial appeal This was a collection that lacked pizazz and tried to walk a dangerous line between being extravagant with fabric and finish, yet demure in the simplicity of its design.

This idea did not translate and resulted in a rather samey presentation. The use of all-over dove grey was overkill at times and the knee-length silhouettes delivered without surface texture just looked tired.
