Here is a collection that touches on the 80's trend I've been seeing, but with a modern, sophisticated approach. DKNY delivered a strong collection that makes me want to adopt these looks NOW.
Starting with the color palette. Black and greys were paired with brights: acid green, fuchsia and electric lavender. Black and white prints added some depth. Smart layers were applied with matte tights and sleeves coming out of satin, silks and sheers. Some of Spring's minidresses will carry into Fall (yes!), and be more wearable thanks to the hosiery resurrection. Metallics showed up in the form of sequins; sequined leggings, tees and dresses created a 'wow' factor. Main accessories were stacked Mary Janes, knit berets and sheer scarves. Some classic DKNY references such as contemporary draping, boxy silhouettes and sporty touches brought this collection home.
My favorite look: an electric lavender satin mini mini dress worn underneath a fabulous oversized coat.
