DKNY Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2011
It looks like New York-based designers are preparing themselves for a cold and strong winter regarding the major outerwear focus most collections have. At times and temperatures like this, a coat is your outfit — just look at all the fashion-people bundled up along the runway.
There were endless excellent choices on offer for next season at DKNY, with a theme called New York Mods. Donna Karan did those coats tailored and graphic, like the black styles with a bold white panel across the chest, adding a little edge with leather sleeves. Toward the end there were knit puffers and furs. It was all sharp and suitable for everyday use. Same goes for what was worn underneath. Tough menswear in sharp, colorblocked tailoring mixed up with motorcycle jackets. Karan worked up chunky knits with a preppy tomboyish flare: bright cardigan dresses and stripey angora sweaters were worn with tailored trousers, tapered and flared. It was a cool and right on time collection.
