Neiman Marcus in Chicago hosted a trunk show featuring the Donna Karan Resort & Spring 2012 Collections last Friday. Vibrant colors were represented throughout the entire collection, including a “pop” of Crimson Fire (red), along with Galactic Black, Ivory and Mist (gray silver). Wardrobe Stylist Stephanie Hess was on hand with advice and information about the line. She said the goal is to style yourself with multiple pieces. All you have to do is pull on the comfortable tunic, add a twist and roosh it up! It sounds like a fun way to dress. Hess quoted Donna Karan as saying, “If it isn’t comfortable then it is not in the line. You must be able to wear it all day.” The pieces have a drapey look on the hangers, but when you put them on, they look amazing. The collection is very versatile with shapes and sizes that fit all body types, and is flattering on all women, whether you are 30 or 70 years old. The line includes leggings, tunics, long cashmere sweaters (light weight and mid-weight) you can put on in the morning and are set for the day. There are also dressy elegant pieces to take you from your desk to dinner, including lots of sequins.
