Donna Karan F/W 13.14 New York
I'm surprised that this collection hasn't been posted yet. I saw the livestream yesterday and thought the collection looked great in motion. I'm not quite as impressed anymore seeing it in pictures now. I think the silhouettes and shapes are fantastic, and I like that the dresses are extremely flattering and classy. I don't like the choice of fabrics in most of the dresses, I think the brown velvet and brown satin are horrendous and the use of fur is confusing here. All teh fuzzy and fringe-y stuff doesn't do anything for me and many of the materials look too heavy and make the clothes look really unsexy although the design itself seems quite nice. This somehow seems to perfectionist in some way, I wish it was less overthought and strict, the models in the show all look like very uptight women that aren't fun to be around But it reminds me a lot of F/W 2002/2003, which was one of her best collections. And I love that it's very dark and mysterious, I love the leather and all the asymmetric cuts and sheer panels. Overall I think it's a very interesting collection!

Thanks for posting, Psylocke! It's one of my favourite collections so far.
The dresses with the cut-outs and the camel coloured coats are very nice!

I love her collection in motion, but when I see the stills, I'm less in love and in the past I have seen her collections on the rack, I was disappointed, the quality wasn't top notch. I really wanted to buy a dress a few seasons ago, but the quality put me off, it was such a disappointment.

This looks so much better in motion, indeed. I was sorely disappointed when I saw the pictures after the livestream. I hate that rusty tone she used, especially on shiny mode, but the rest of it is killer. The shapes are extremely fluid and natural. And that gray draped dress on Kati is one of my fashion week moments so far. *swoon*

After an initial viewing of the collection (by still images, not live stream) I do have to agree that this doesn't pack quite the same punch, but I do still think that it is a brilliant collection from her and probably my overall favourite thus far. The opening couple of looks are perfection and I really love those dresses with the massive drape over one arm. Incredibly sexy and dark.

The brown looks don't work for me though, a bit too obvious from her for a Fall/Winter collection IMO.

Graphic, bold and strong. Not to mention impossibly sexy. The hair and makeup are flawless!
