Elegant in black and white? That’s exactly what the dumbfounding Donna Karan pre-fall 2014 collection is thoroughly meant to create! The super luxurious shapes and principles of matching the everlasting pair of black and white are simply raised to perfection with these relaxed and at times strict looks, which appear in a very delightful harmony with the design details like transparencies and shiny sequins. The crisp silhouettes and evident longing for classic looks is also worth mentioning here, having nicely contributed to creating some ultra-classy and alluring effect.
Another interesting peculiarity of the Donna Karan pre-fall 2014 collection is the color picks, which are sometimes presented as curious camel, cream, or greyish options, as if spicing the line even more. Thus, what we can see in the opening looks is the striking colorplay of black and white, which comes as a combo of a crisp shirt with long sleeved and unbuttoned alluring shape, paired with a semi-transparent pleated skirt of tea length. Further, this diversity reaches such options as a similarly designed duo with the skirt being a bit more elongated, a curious combo of white top with black miniskirt and classy black elongated jacket, a super feminine combo of white top plus black suit and pants formula, and some minimalistically created, yet extremely feminine and attractive monochrome white dresses, having a peculiar solution with black details like belts for making the color play live.
Later comes the color shift to some calm shades like beige, which is used to create some super soft and sweet shapes, be that with tops, pants or skirts, or just outerwear alternatives. One of the stunners here is the cream dress having a long-sleeved top part and a pleated bottom. The greyish shades for coats, as well as camel variants are another color variation here. So are the brownish shades applied to some monochrome black garments, to add some vivacity and charm.
Finally, we can’t but also note the all black ultra-stunning dresses, the cornerstone of which is the extravagant and enigmatic transparency used here and there all over these options. The shapes vary from slick to relaxed and pleated and from strapless to turtleneck variants. In order to describe the Donna Karan pre-fall 2014 collection in one word, we should probably say just chic. Nothing else is needed for the absolutely breathtaking and flawless party looks. The Donna Karan pre-fall 2014 collection definitely has it all!
