Gauntlet gloves and shoulder-hugging dresses at Donna Karan, bomber jackets at Phillip Lim and Richard Chai, lug-soled boots at Tory Burch and Proenza Schouler, artful camouflage and armor-like tailoring at Narciso Rodriguez, heavy-duty studding and fur-tail fringe at Alexander Wang, and chain-mail prints at Rag & Bone underscored a fierce, warrior theme. Protection from the economic storm, perhaps?<br>
