Spring-Summer 2014 – In ode to 25 years of swift city-girl/boy styling, DKNY’s Summer 14 collection was the quintessence of all things the label stands for. Born in the spring of 1989, the House brought a Nineties nostalgic feel: a recurring theme across the fashion board. Providing variations on the brands logo; trench coats, scuba and parachute fabrics, will prove commercially renowned from it ‘classic’ focus.
The Label set the scene with a Graffiti-covered backdrop, a stationary yellow cab and giant graffitied lettering at the end of the runway, spelling DKNY. Neoprene duffle coats and dresses, paperbag skirts teamed with equally as eccentric trainers. Bright blue, coral red, pastel palettes and a slick of spray paint echoed the setting, building to the grand finale of Karlie Kloss emerging in a ‘slinky red’ slip dress. However, one last sweet surprise arose as Rita Ora owned the catwalk applauded by guests in awe.
