Fall Fashion Refresher | The Drape

October 5, 2009

I must admit that I was confounded by the chill in the air this weekend when deciding what to wear.  By focusing on the recently debuted spring collections I have ignored the immediate relevancy of the fall 2009 collections.  So, I decided to capture a few of the highlights from the fall shows to provide you and I both with a little inspiration.  Today’s featured fall look is The Drape as interpreted by Donna Karan and Haider Ackermann.  Both designers presented knits in black or charcoal which were wrapped and draped in unique ways. 


Karan presented a draped jersey knit dress, or draped blouse coupled with a narrow skirt or tailored slacks.  The ensemble was accompanied by a polished black leather belt and ankle length boots.

Ackermann’s thicker knits and asymmetrical constructions were more dramatically draped to reveal the occasional pale shoulder.
