From what I have seen of both Donna Karan labels over the course of my experience with fashion, I would say that this designer has two modes shown each excusively in its own label. DKNY is the super urban flashy label and Donna Karan is the super art commune comfy label. From pictures I have seen of Donna Karan herself, I think she prefers the latter. It certainly has its charms. The collection is flowing and diaphanous, evoking images of hippie chicks, pre-raphaelite artists, and princesses of the Australian Outback in relatively equal measure. I don't know how well I could wear it, but I definitely like it.
