Donna Karan has launched an exclusive capsule collection for online retailer Gilt Groupe that aims to make packing for a summer getaway a snap.

Hearkening back to the roots of her business in the early 1980s, when Karan launched her Seven Easy Pieces to make everyday dressing easy, the Gilt collection features luxe styles that can be worn multiple ways (perfect for travel), including the black fluid jersey Infinity Dress ($750, above left), which can be worn as a casual tank dress; an asymmetrical, one-sleeve dress; or backward as a halter dress. There’s a video on the site that shows you how to style the looks.


The collection also includes Karan’s versatile, open-front cardigan ($495); wide-leg stretch silk pants ($495); and sexy, gathered ‘cold-shoulder’ twist top ($350), alongside travel-sized Donna Karan fragrance kits ($95), cashmere blankets ($350) and deals on hotel rooms from Gilt sister site Jetsetter.

We’ll take a weekend at the Surf Lodge Montauk please.
