It’s no secret that we love all things leather so we were particularly pleased with DKNY’s Fall 2012 collection. Inspired by the beat generation, dresses, jackets, coats, and complete ensembles incorporated the material. All things noir dominated, but firebrick pieces added a unique richness the runway. The brand set a decidedly modern tone with large screens simulcasting the show as models entered the space from the streets of New York. Though Donna Karan is a venerable Big Apple icon, DKNY always manages to feel innovative and refreshing.
