The Show: DKNY
The Venue: The exposed, brick-walled, sparse Cedar Lake Ballet Theatre in Chelsea. Donna’s team customized the walls with a neon “Something New York” sign to play along with the show’s theme, “Show Me Something New York.”
The Front Row: A very blonde Birdie Bell, singer Eliza Doolittle and new French Vogue editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt sporting a very covetable oversize black peacoat and flared dark jeans.
The Look: Donna Karan always draws from Manhattan in some way for her diffusion collection, and this season it was a homage to the New York Mods. Not the ’60s mods, mind you–modernists of New York of any era. Which means right this very second, too. A very citified color palette of black, cream, navy and gray accented with red, mustard and blush made up simple tomboyish tailoring that was clean and easy to layer. Everything was topped with a bowler hat; and black, camel and gold stack-heel lace-ups punched up every look.
The Pieces We Love: The over-the-shoulder coat cape, the lean flared trousers of a pantsuit also worn with a rockery leather-insert motorcycle jacket, the fluffy mohair sweaters worn under suits, and the knit puffer jackets in bright red and camel.
