The sparkly, crepe-thin pieces in Donna Karan's Resort 2013 collection weren't inspired by an exotic locale or a romantic train of thought but rather by paper. "Sit around and play with napkins long enough, and all of a sudden, you have a dress," she said. Still, the garments were a bit more involved than Karan let on with that statement: many of the evening-focused collection's pieces featured intricate origami pleats, gracious cowl necklines, and crystal embroidery and closures. The palette hewed close to Karan's customarily earthy palette, but the designer made room for a few dresses and a suit in Schiaparelli pink.
