The tilt, the skew, have me inspired to the hilt,

To renew my affection for Ms. Karan and what she has built, for what she has imbued

In her clothes, which allow us to be as poetic or as powerful

As we need to be

In a moment

Or at a milestone.

Donna Karan’s collection was full of delightful surprises for FW12, the pinnacle of which, were these toppers – a collaboration with Stephen Jones.

There are so many good things going on here - the double shade of grey, the pinstripes, the lilt of the tilt.

The contrast of the sculpted collar works so well against the fedora, no? And does that collar call to you, as it does to me?

Liner notes, noted. Can we also discuss the cubist collage that is that shirt collar?

Victoriana is present in many a collection, this season.

I have grown rather attached to the detached Donna collars.

I’ll have more from this collection, which was a study in shape and form, in the coming weeks.
