WWD has reported that DKNY is another brand opting-out from showing at tents in Bryant Park this season. That said, DKNY has chosen to show off-site for many seasons and was not expected, the way it was for, say, Betsey Johnson, one way or the other.
DKNY's Spring 2009 collection, which was shown in the tents, celebrated the brand's 20th anniversary. A plethora of street-ready, trendy basics showed off Donna Karan's talent for chic fashion at a contemporary price point. Although we've never loved a sneaker with heels we did thoroughly enjoy the easy boyfriend blazers, silk jumpsuits, and statement necklaces. Right on trend and moderately priced... assuming the economy slightly improves by then, these pieces should sell by the arm-full.
