Summary: It seems that slouchy’s the word for Spring ’09 at runways across the City, but Donna Karan, in her typical classically perfect way, is doing it the best. Shocking, we know. Influenced by fluidity and the colors of the city, some of her best draping worked nicely when with more structural jackets that kept the look clean and smart- and certainly more functional when weathering April showers. Metallics also reigned at Karan’s show, incorporating bedazzled necklines and chic looking belts. You won’t be wearing anything of Donna Karan’s sexy collection to your 9am meeting, but your social life certainly won’t suffer.
