DKNY’s spring 2017 collection posits that “New York is the new New York,” in looking to what will define the city’s style tomorrow. Imagining a futuristic locale dubbed “Neo Soho,” the brand presents an edit of pieces that are at once aspirational and practical, and positioned firmly in the 21st century.
The brand describes this sophisticated, effortless dressing system as “a solutions-based foundation to the millennial wardrobe,” which is manifested in modern, interchangeable knits, a progressive approach to the power suit, and a refined sport utility aesthetic. A contemporary take on feminine, urban sexiness is matched with confident, energetic color and “deceptively simple, easy-to-wear day options.”
What else, apparently, defines the fashion of the future? The season’s distinct styles were designed with tension in mind: contrast between hard and soft; elegance versus “street”; tech and tradition; and structure versus fluidity. Click through to view highlights from the collection.
