Last week, Urban Zen — a brand based on a philosophy of living by Donna Karan — presented The Alchemist Collection for Fall 2016 at the Urban Zen studio. Karan wanted to “present and experience our Fall 2016 collection in September with press and directly to the consumer, all at once. No delay.” She continued: “I’ve always said that’s how a customer wants to shop, and that’s how I’m showing. The new season is in season.”
The collection was presented in a modern-day desert oasis, complete with a falcon. Immediately following, guests were able to shop the collection in its entirety at the Urban Zen Store — as located next door to the studio — and online at www.UrbanZen.com.
Urban Zen is a luxurious lifestyle destination based on the philosophy of its founder, Donna Karan, offering ready-to-wear, accessories, furniture and home décor items as well as soulful global artisan treasures.
