Capturing the feel of New York’s streets is the crux of DKNY. This season, Donna Karan and co. celebrated the city as a global melting pot with what the program called a “multicolored, multicultural, multitasking” collection entitled New York Nation. The theme made for a high-energy show that opened with a series of vibrant looks combining kaleidoscopic prints and rugby stripes. Binx Walton kicked things off in a geometric intarsia sweater paired with a slinky knit tube skirt—which came creatively layered underneath a kicky pleated style—and flatform sneakers. Mixing couture-like silhouettes with sporty fabrications, the lineup featured voluminous tea-length dresses and calf-grazing trumpet skirts cut from a spongy double-faced mesh, which were accessorized with playful extras including ribbed chokers, crisp white high-tops (a new collaboration with Pony), and bright clutches covered in metal pop-tops. Elsewhere, a mix of eye-catching embellishments like mirrored paillettes and wooden beads lent an artisanal edge to festive tunics and minis.
