Donna Karan hits a strong high note with the Fall Winter 2012 Collection. There was a yellow cab as the backdrop to the show as models came in off the street, just in case you need reminding, this is the City at its most Street Smart. Smooth slim leather skirts that flared at the hem and snug leather corset jackets with removable buckled aviator snood collars to keep out city ice and chill, this is a serious collection. Colors were like the night. Coal, indigo, inky and very, very cool. But Karan didn’t leave us out in the cold. Brilliant jackets, dresses and skirts of mulberry wool or leather, cadet blue georgette tops that speak of softness beneath, even animal prints to liven up the night with a spot or two of color were drizzled throughout the collection. Shearling and Marino wool were tucked inside every crevice to ensure that any warmth within, stays there. Corset belts wrapped around tiny puffer jacket waists taking that article of clothing to an entirely new level. Swoons from the audience proved that this collection will be hotly anticipated. Every piece.
