“New York City inspires and fuels everything I do. Donna Karan New York and DKNY embrace the energy of the city. One is luxe sophistication, the other is fast, hip and spirited. Both are modern and reflect how we live day into night. To me, they’re like caviar and pizza,a limousine and a taxi, the skyline and the street.”
Scheduled to preview in New York tonight, Donna Karan’s tabletop collection with Lenox includes serving pieces, stemware, flatware and more, in a variety of textures and materials that includes sculpted metal, hand-carved wood, bone china, mouth-blown china and more. Her stemware line was inspired by the New York City skyline at night, and she has incorporated elements of fashion into the range with names like Platinum Voile and Wave and Pleats. The cornerstone of the collection is a group of seven pieces that can be mixed and matched to achieve a singular look that fits your home aesthetic. Karan told WWD: “Tableware has grown beyond the traditional tabletop. It’s all about objects of desire that have to connect with you in an emotional way. It has to connect with a certain sophistication that you bring into your home.” The pieces will retail for between $25 and $3000 at specialty and department stores around the U.S. What I am actually looking forward to is the setup she has stored using all the elements within the collection. Will update you once photos are available.
