Summary: The DKNY Spring 2011 Collection 'New York, New Take' was what I would call, "Talbots gone cool." This sophisticated collection of tan black and cream with shots of bright red accents wih the DKNY heritage scarf can be worn by women of all ages. Donna Karan shows us many separates, including menswear pant and jacket looks, softened with ruffles, streamlined dresses, jumpsuits and one shoulder styles that lead the way to an easy attitude with sharp styling for spring 2011. The rouge colored Heritage Scarf was a standout, draped over many of the looks and also made as scarf tops and scarf dresses. The sleek jackets with modern frills and slim tapered pants are a flattering classic that everyone should want to own.
