Key Takeaways: The veteran designer had fun experimenting with volume for the next season while keeping all other flourishes to a minimum, making for a classic Donna Karan collection.

Color Palette: Not surprisingly, black was a favorite color of this collection, as were bold shades of purple, gold, camel and red, all paired with electric purple on the lips.

Silhouettes: Plunging V-neck cocktail dresses with shirred front panels; tie-waist wrap coats with oversized lapels; jewel-encrusted, netted cutouts on bodysuits and sheaths for a trompe l’oeil effect.

Accessories Report: The face was a blank canvas, save for shocking fuschia on the lips. For shoes, it was all about high heels–the platform is back as a bigger trend than ever!

What’s Wearable: A black netted bodysuit, encrusted with jewels, completely sexified a power pantsuit.

What’s Not Wearable: As much as we tried to be open to new color pairings, we cringed at someone’s decision to pair purple lips with a red houndstooth jacket.
