Donna Karan: Boudoir Babes Galore
September 13th, 2008 @ 1:37 PM - New York
Downtown damsels count your blessings. Donna Karan has the spring 2009 collection for you if you want to vamp it up a lot in the boudoir of your penthouse loft.
In a provocative display Friday, Sept. 12, the New York designer crammed the runway of her West Village showspace with butter soft, slinky cocktail and evening gear, designed to lure lovers into the nearest bedroom.
In a sultry show from start to finish, the clothes were mega deconstructed, the cut showed major quantities of flesh – legs, thighs, arms and neck - and the mood though elegant was pretty explicit.
The majority of the collection was composed of décolleté dresses, many of which fell off the shoulders of the models, dolled up with loose hair and shiny, come hither eyeliner.
Karan called the collection, “Liquid Assets,“ and rarely have we seen a Manhattan show were the models’ physical assets were so blatantly on display. That said, the collection was a happy counterblast to a New York season where secretarial looks marched down many runways.
Her fabric choice, like silk charmeuse and satin jersey, had a liquid-like finish, reflecting light like a late afternoon ocean, a sense heightened by the azure, silver and lime hues of the clothes.
Above all, one had the sense that Donna figures the current economic blues may last a while, since most of this collection had as a sure destination a Caribbean holiday.
