Donna Karan’s ability to channel the streets of New York came through strong as ever during the DKNY spring/summer 2015 runway show. Rather than focusing on the color black or a downtown, effortless chic vibe, however, this season’s collection draws heavily from the multicultural elements of the city. Titled New York Nation, the collection features tribal-inspired prints, mirrored pailettes, and wooden bead detailing. Bold stripes and kaleidoscopic graphics adorn tube skirts, bomber jackets, and calf-length dresses, while vibrant colors such as “blazing red,” “supersonic blue,” and “paradise green,” permeate the entire collection. Accessories like ribbed chokers and white high-tops, which were made in collaboration with Pony, only furthered the collection’s street-wear aesthetic. As if the colors and experimental silhouettes weren’t enough, DKNY also cast models straight from New York’s creative street scene, including May Kwok, Lee Bullitt, and Vashtie Kola.
