New York Fashion Week: DKNY remixes the classics
February 15, 2010 | 10:04 am
The classics remixed. That was the takeaway from the fall DKNY line, a compelling mash-up of menswear- inspired equestrian plaids, Bauhaus grids and Deco florals. Schoolgirl pleated skirts came in mixed plaids and checks, and Angora wool coats were oversized and man-tailored, some with contrast leather piping.
Bands of electric blue sequins livened up the camel, gray, burgundy and black sweaters and scarves in geometric collage patterns. And for evening, short dresses shined with metallic patches of beads and sequins.
Those platform brogue booties were a hit, too.
