On a trip to India, Donna Karan found a scarf that inspired her spring 2014 collection.  WHile the lineup boasted Karan's signature urban flair there was more than a  touch of the exotic.

Karan’s earthy angels donned sometimes-translucent day-to-night stretch dresses, some with graphic hand blocking that skimmed bodies like halos, but simmered with sensuality.

For Karan, who lives by black, the collection offered a brand new color way: Navy being the base line along with sunbaked shades of indigo, clay and tobacco.

Oversized shirts, barely tucked into long, lean sarongs, or tiny miniskirts, some beaded, gave off a sexy casual vibe as did loose pajama pants. Coats and jacket turned out in supple leather and suede, and for dress up, a one shoulder chiffon number in terra-cotta with a subtle sparkly leaf pattern … stunning.
