The love affair between Donna Karan and New York City is as strong now as it has ever been. The designer has intertwined her life’s work with the beating heart of this city and the women who inhabit it. It’s a symbiotic relationship that this season proved to be exceedingly harmonious.

Setting her catwalk aglow with an illuminated skyscraper backdrop, Karan echoed the color palette of the urban night in her fall/winter 2015 collection. Black and gold became the building blocks for outfits that had an architectural elegance about them. Case in point: look 4, a charcoal stretch jersey dress that featured asymmetrical folds of fabric across the torso. It was a sartorial concept that could have looked fussy in the hands of a lesser designer.

Volume was also expertly handled. From the simple beauty of a deftly executed lantern sleeved top to the rich grandeur of a brocade shearling coat, Karan showed she was totally in control of the situation. The subtle inclusion of Asian influence in the overall concept of the show only helped to highlight the structural foundation of the collection. 

And when the final black evening gown came down the catwalk with its perfectly placed asymmetrical folds and inserts of semitransparent fabrics, Karan showed that her work, just like the city she loves, has an enduring grace.
