DKNY Fall 2012 Collection
The notes didn’t say so, but this collection came across to us a direct appeal to the NYC gal; tough, ballsy, occasionally in your face, but feminine to the core. The kind of gal who can rock a leather jacket and 5-inch heels while navigating subway grates. Having the models walk in from the street against the backdrop of a parked NYC cab certainly helped that impression. Then we realized, aren’t all DKNY collections essentially about that same woman? From the powerful-looking black leathers to the business-like grays to the pretty florals and the feral leopard prints, this DKNY collection, like all DKNY collections, showcases the strong, sophisticated, sexy urban woman. Loved the shapes here, especially the fitted tops with skirts that flare out at the bottom, and the big leather Wonder Woman-style belts.
Strength + Femininity = DKNY.
