Designer Spotlight: Donna Karan

Last week, most of us heard the biggest fashion news in a long time. My favorite designer, Donna Karan, is leaving the brand she built in 1985 with "seven easy pieces." This is what Donna's team announced.....

"After much thoughtful discussion and in partnership with Donna Karan International and LVMH, our visionary founder, Donna Karan, has made a personal decision to step down from her day-to-day responsibilities as Chief Designer for Donna Karan International. She will remain with the company in an advisory role and will dedicate her focus on her Urban Zen Company and foundation, which she founded in 2007."

Having a small collection of her timeless designs, I have not retired any piece. They seem to never go out of style. Now is the time to get a piece for yourself. Today I dedicate this post to all things Donna Karan.

Donna Karan Resort 2016
I found this great illustration on What Do I Wear at Tumblr. Thank goodness this collection was in the works before Ms. Karan made her decision

One Shoulder Evening Gown
This season, the designer entered the world of abstract prints with great success. The Donna Karan drape is still apparent. If this is your size, happy bargain! It's a great buy.

Twist Front Jersey Gown
Paint this dress black, it would be my pick, always! Wear it in red, and you will be the life of the party. Proof that no one knows how to drape a woman's body better than Donna.

 Lace Lantern-Sleeve Dress
Donna embraced lace for Fall 2015.

Sequin Skirt and Blouse
Shimmering sequins cover this stretch jersey skirt. The sheer sleeve blouse is the perfect paired down compliment. A chic choice.

Spring 2015 Look #8
In the "Art Of The Street" print for Spring, these two easy pieces are now nicely reduced. The Bateau Blouse was a pivotal piece in black or red for the season. The chic cotton skirt features pockets.

DKNY Resort 2016
The Company will disband the Donna Karan line but continue to create the DKNY line.

DKNY Spring - Summer
A great look for Summer. The DKNYPure Line (my favorite). The three pieces, Embroidered Tee, Visor, and Maxi Skirt could be worn almost anywhere. Easy. Breezy. Comfy chic.

DKNY Pure Shrug Cardigan
A chic essential for day to night dressing. The cotton/linen fabrication is light weight enough for the warmer months.

Jersey Detailed Blouse
One of my very favorite pieces. Gorgeous Georgette can be dressed up or down.

Metallic Date Night Top

Donna Karan Home

Donna with her "soul sister," Barbra Streisand
She designed Barbra’s "Back to Brooklyn" concert  wardrobe at the Barclays Center.

On The Red Carpet
Jane Fonda wore a Donna Karan gown to the 101st Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton on April 25, 2015 in Washington, DC.

With a foreward by Barbara Streisand, this candid memoir is certainly on my Summer reading list.
