Donna Karan Resort

DonnaKaran_02

Winter in New York can be brutal, which is why I have been especially enjoying the resort temperatures of L.A. and Brazil where our recent work has taken us. Last year I had the wonderful job of shooting Ava Smith for Donna Karan’s Resort 2014 mailer without knowing how significant this time of year would be. As you know, I have a very deep photographic relationship with Donna Karan and this week, as New York Fashion Week begins again with designers showing their Fall / Winter 2014 collections, I will be in house with them trying to capture the intimate moments that I associate so very well with the Donna Karan women I aspire to be…

Every piece tells a textured story

The story is of an urban traveler…a woman trekking across the world, finding beauty everywhere she goes: in the swirling dust of the Australian Outback, the golden plains of Africa at sunrise, the red clays of the American Southwest. The journey has a palette of dusty reds, browns, and golds wrapped in the open expanse of blue summer skies.

The result of this voyage is a collection that is perfect for summer…

The pieces are earthy and sensual, draped for real women’s bodies to highlight our beautiful femininity, regardless of size or shape. What I loved most is how realistic and supremely wearable they were without losing any sense of style or artistry. This season was full of artisanal beauty, with hand-blocked prints and hand-beaded embroideries, which only added to the grounded sophistication.

Donna Karan Resort (27)

Donna Karan knows women. She knows how they sashay across streets, she knows how they command a corporate desk, she knows how they go out on the town. Donna Karan designs for all of the facets of a woman’s life, and nowhere was it more clear than in her most recent collection, “The L Word”.

Using several “L” words as inspiration – long, lean, languid, luxurious, light, limitless – Karan created a collection that captured the dualities of a modern woman. The pieces were an elegant mix of urban and calm, fitted and draped,  neutral and bright, allowing the woman who wears them to simply be, whenever and wherever she may find herself…now that is something this New Yorker can relate to.

You can only be who you are…

I am a New York woman, embracing the world. Designing clothes that move day to night, Monday to Sunday in any city, every culture. 

My husband Stephan – his art and soul – is a part of me, inspiring and guiding me to sculpt the body with expression. 

This collection is the evolution of seven easy pieces, a system where the body and spirit communicate the sensuality and power of being a woman, with multiple passions, constantly on the go.
