Donna Karan Pre-Fall Preview 2014

Dear Fashionistas,

We were so excited to be part of Donna Karan’s pre-Fall Presentation at The Ritz-Carlton Residences Chicago.

Inspired by architecture and structure, Donna Karen wowed us with her pre-fall collection. Most of her pieces were classic DK with a focus on comfort and beauty. Incredible cashmere and lots of jersey knit. We particularly liked and glad to see the mono chrome trend back in style for a long sleek silhouette. The accents on her pieces offer a fun, timely departure from the classic such as the zipper detail and a splash of colorful patterns. Still always polished and posh of course.

Trends for the fall include longer skirts, structured blouses and jackets, high-low pieces continue to stay on trend and organic fabrics are becoming more and more the staple fabric for comfort and flexibility.  Below are some of our faves we shot at the Ritz of Donna Karan’s Pre-Fall Preview 2014:
