Donna Karan 2010 Spring/Summer Collection
Karan and jackets go way back. For spring, she took an artful approach, working in moody neutrals for fabrics that looked lived-in and mysteriously nondescript. These were cut into the stuff of authoritative chic: a pumice stretch jacket over a stretch taffeta body skirt; an ultrasoft burlap jacket belted over a gauzy skirt.
Dresses came lean and belted in washed linen, or in goddess jerseys. For variety, organza provided structure of the most ethereal sort, while shots of blush, coral and red jolted the palette. And occasionally, Stephen Jones picture hats drove home the mood of knowing romance.
