Donna Karan Launches New Urban Zen Capsule Collection
It’s the hautest month for shopping in the Hamptons, and South Fork regular Donna Karan knows when to amp things up for her Urban Zen store. Advocating in-season deliveries, Karan created a special capsule collection called “The Journey” for July and August instead of just filling her store with pre-Fall items. “When a woman walks into a store, she wants to be inspired,” Karan said in a press statement. “She shops for things she can wear here, today—yet also knows she can wear it into the next season. Especially midsummer. She knows she can’t live at the beach. But she can take that spirit with her when she heads back to the city and into fall.”
The collection consists of 40 pieces, like a new signature wrap dress with linen borders that can transform into three different looks, one-of-a-kind Indian sari dresses and tops whose fabrics were hand-picked by Karan herself in India, versatile T shirts, luxe scarves, sculpted tunics, jodhpurs, and a soft leather jacket, to name a few. The collection comes in colors like tan, bronze, sand, eggshell, indigo and black and are hand-dyed by artisan dyers to achieve a sun-kissed look. Prices range from $595 for a top to $2,695 for a jacket. The collection will be available in Urban Zen’s Sag Harbor location; select pieces will be available in New York City.
