After the dark color palette of the Band of Outdsiders show, DKNY took over the runway with small and large animal prints on knitted dresses and oversize sweaters and splashes of shocking pink or fire-engine red. The brand turns 25 next year, so this collection was all about reviving the iconic shapes and looks that the brand has been known for from the beginning and keeping them modern, thus pleasing both its new and established customers. One of the 90s fashion staples pinned by DKNY was the sport-style body-conscious dress, that was reimagined with curvilinear neoprene panels with trompe l'oeil color blocking.
The collection presented a very modern working wardrobe. Among my favorite pieces were the all black outfit in the opening photo, the white, camel and black looks, the form fitting colorful dresses, the black and navy peplum top, teh grey oversize jacket and of course the floor length dresses - so chic and simple! have a look at my selection of the best looks from the runway:
Such an explosion of color among the muted tones of navy, grey and black! I really enjoyed this show, how about you? What were your favorite pieces?
