Donna Karan Spring 2013 is a rather serene look at urban dress.  Soft and bit dreamy, spiral-cute skirts and empire-waist gowns have an easy sort of grace to them.  Each look is beautifully draped and elegantly folded.  I love the languid line to each piece as it lends a reflective sort of peace to this collection.  There is a lightness to this rather unusual tribute to New York City, but I like this kind of quiet reflection upon a city so rapidly paced.  Moreover, slow meandering tone utterly suits the easiness of summer.  And though this collection is delightfully wearable right off the runway (vibrant red eye show aside), there is nothing ordinary about the craftsmanship.  The foundation to its serenity, after all, is the papery Japanese-style cotton which has been has beautifully crinkled like deliciously rumpled crepe.  There is a pretty, worn-in feel to this sort of fabric. Elegance at its best.
