Loving The Donna Karan & Carolina Herrera Shows

This afternoon, the beautiful collections by Carolina Herrera and Donna Karan were shown.  They were both very elegant and sophisticated ... a nod to the Hitchcock femme fatale of '60's, my fav era. I read somewhere that this trend could be the influence of the popular show, Mad Men.  Honestly, I've never watched it but just might check it out.

Both designers combined this elegant reference with modern details.  Donna Karan including her signature draping of flowing material to add a beautiful gazelle-like feminine touch.  I loved how Carolina Herrera added shrug-like collars to jackets and coats.  She did one gown that had a sheer top with puff sleeves, combined with these brown gloves that looked fluffed up like bird feathers ... amazing! 


My pick for the fall 2011 statement look? The fur wraps Donna combined with the elbow-length gloves.  The two accessories complement each other so perfectly.
