Donna Karen

Dresses galore at Donna Karen S/S'06

Inspired by New York's Museum of Modern Art, Donna Karen brought forth sumptuous dresses with artistic prints for her spring collection. There was graffiti prints and abstract graphics that fitted perfectly with her romantic dresses.

The winners however, were not these prints but rather what Karan described in her run of show as freefall back dresses. Gathered by a sash at the waist that passed between the middle back and the fabric, they tented out behind the models as they glided around the runway. The canary yellow piece shown in the first picture was the winning piece for me. It's fluid, romantic shape and the gorgeous summery colour would be perfect for night or day/

Silhouettes were generally full, with the 40s A-line dresses being the main feature, although there were a few pencil skirts, as well as fitted, cropped pants. The seperates however, were predictable and less impressive, as usual, as compared to the dresses.

The colour spectrum covered the usual summer shades of yellow, beige and white but elements of fall still remained, with navy, black and brown.

I've never been more in love with dresses.
