OVERALL TAKEAWAY: Donna Karan’s Spring collection focused on femininity, romance and whimsy, with breathtaking gowns that floated down the runway in delicate and soft shades.

Silk and sheer fabrics in a beachy color palette of muted sea blues and greens created an allure of glamorously sexy and classically demure.

An oyster linen and midi-length jersey dress and cropped jacket opened the show, followed by a flurry of eloquently constructed separates, with plenty of boxy and fitted tops with full skirts to slim blazers over pencil dresses and sheer-embellished overlays with boy shorts peeking through.

After the chic daytime pieces came one dreamy dress after the next, all gracefully gliding down the runway. From a transparent georgette gown to a seafoam and sequin-embellished design, with plenty of criss-cross open backs and refined draping, the dresses were so effortlessly ethereal, fitting the feminine figure in the most blissfully breezy, yet thoughtfully constructed manner.
