If DKNY was all about young women moving through the city that never sleeps, Donna Karan's Spring 2013 line for her grown-up eponymous label examined what happens far above the streets of the bustling metropolis at sunrise and sunset.

A muted palette of morning's dove gray and pink, dusk's pale gold, and midnight's dark blue set the stage for a languorous array of garments cut from crinkly cotton that had a well-worn feel. The dresses that weren't loosely draped around the body took a modern approach to the empire silhouette or surrounded the legs in soft pleats. Jackets ranged from trim bias-cut toppers to floaty, trapezoidal arrangements, but none had buttons or snap closures. Instead, they made loose and sometimes tenuous connections predicated on shape alone.

In true Karan fashion, the gowns were draped almost effortlessly: two with asymmetrical necklines caught the breeze the models created coming down the runway. The final look, a strapless blue work, featured pale orange whorls that called the setting sun to mind.
