DKNY - New York Spring 2009
(NEW YORK) Inspired by the city’s many colorful personalities, Dona Karan delivered a spectrum of joy and creativity to celebrate DKNY’s 20th anniversary. The Spring 2009 collection is an homage to the past with 80s neons, exaggerated bows and a nod of optimism, looking forward with brights and tech fibers. But the brand’s signature pieces emerged—the jumpsuit, the DKNY tee, vests, utilitarian pants, the staple trench, denim suits and the essential jersey dress. Karan has always been as practical as she is fashion-forward and this season was no exception, with zippers and hoods serving as details. “The city streets never cease to inspire me,” said Karan.
