Today, DKNY and Bauble Bar launched their jewelry collaboration available right now at BaubleBar.com, showcasing a nice mix of chunky chain jewelry and floral motifs. Taking a cue from DKNY's Spring 2012 runway collection, the jewelry line, priced from $40 to $320, culls inspiration from Jackson Pollock via stripe detailing and poppy flower shapes. Read below for our top pieces, then peruse the lookbook styled by DKNY PR girl herself Aliza Licht.
The Fall 2012 DKNY collection by Donna Karan was inspired by the Beat Generation and featured clothes that were at once ladylike and strong, thanks to fitted silhouettes, leather and buckle detailing, and a dark palette punched up with deep red. Click to watch the show that featured models walking in off the street.
Dedicated to the Beat Generation, DKNY Fall 2012 showed a collection filled with strong silhouettes, pretty details, and even some shearling and fur. Designed with a city girl in mind, these seemed dedicated to the working city girl — skirt and jacket looks were belted for a crisp look, and coats were edged in leather. Ashley Greene, Nina Dobrev, and Coco Rocha were seated in the front row, watching the models come in literally off the street — the show was sat in a cavernous garage-like space with double-doors that opened out onto the sidewalk, allowing the models to walk in. Minus the fact that it was freezing out, it made for an energetic show.

>> DKNY offered up a plethora of citified cold-weather looks and some very stellar outerwear options for Fall 2012: boxy fur jackets, leather-sleeved cocoon coats, sporty puffers, and double-breasted wool coats. As for what to wear underneath, there were pencil skirts, straight-cut trousers, body-skimming maxi dresses, and a plethora of flippy little miniskirts. But the main take-away from this DKNY collection? When in doubt, belt it.
Ashley Geene stepped out onto the red carpet in a custom leather and lace DKNY creation. Her onyx Jacob & Co. black diamond floral cuff, chandelier earrings, and black patent leather pumps lend a chic add-on to her edgier ensemble. And to complete the look, she wears loose, romantic waves and and a berry-toned lip color. What do you think?
