DKNY Fall 2015 RTW

Normcore and color are the words which come to mind when describing DKNY’s Fall 2015 RTW show. While glancing at the entire collection, those words seem to be a constant throughout. Being a fan of both, I was fairly excited of the overall collection.

“The New York woman who dresses day to night, who’s illuminated by black with shots of color and neon lights. The young working woman, the ageless working woman” were Donna Karan’s precise words when describing her new collection, which premiered on Sunday during New York Fashion Week.

Karan, being no stranger to dressing the “ideal new York woman”, definitely hit her mark when it came to conveying her message on stage. Among the trends listed above, menswear appeared to have been a large influence on the collection as well. There was an abundance of oversized coats, paired with bright, asymmetrical dresses and fitted trousers. As a lover of turtlenecks, I was extremely stoked to see that almost every look featured a bulky version, in an array of colors, ranging from grey to cobalt. If one payed close attention, it was apparent to witness the city’s influence, which Karan admitted to playing a major role in the collection. From the structure of the hems, to the overall colorful palate; everything about this collection screamed New York.

By far one of my favorite collections of the season!

I am a journalistic enthusiast, born and bred in Washington, D.C. When I'm not busy meticulously constructing posts, I can be found burying my head in an epic novel, cooking a delicious mess in the kitchen, scouring local thrift stores, and spending way too much time binging on Netflix (Arrested Development anyone?). I cannot live without a good playlist (Billy Holiday is preferred), working wifi (sometimes not always working), and Dunkin Donuts coffee (caramel swirl is my go-to flavor). If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to direct them to the email below. Happy Reading!
