Knit Trends/New York Shops

Another giant in retailing presenting a very small, individual boutique is Donna Karan with her Urban Zen in Greenwich st. The Collection is definitely Karan with her mix of original Ethnic/Tribal 'Art' and carefully unstructured clothes. There is evidence of 'hybrid' fabrics that fall between knit and weave and always feel soft and fluid. Signature pieces included superfine cashmere knitted into a double layer wrapped cardi featuring long cut floats. The non-colour look was all shades of black and brown. Fabulous neck pieces/collars in aged dark leather gave the whole look an individual edge.
