DKNY founder and designer Donna Karan started out in the 1960s with late designer Anne Klein. This season Karan brought the definition of diversity to her audience at Sunday evening’s show as her collection was modelled by men and women who comprised of professional models and “everyday” people – not all standard height and size or gender as a key element in Donna Karan’s collections is making wearable pieces that appeal to a variety of preferences.

The colour palette included monochrome, vibrant blue, deep blue, maroon, yellow and pink. There were combinations showcasing DKNY flare such as down fill with a fur sleeve and casual jumpers with sequins sleeve. The atmosphere was laidback yet with overtones of rebellion with models showcasing, heavily tattooed bodies and bright yellow, blue and purple hair colours.

An accessory that predominated throughout the different looks was the iconic New York Yankee baseball cap. The 1990s platform sneakers were worn with long black socks.  “DKNY really is about the streets. It’s about the streets of New York, the energy of New York, the people of New York,” says Donna Karan.
