DKNY Pumps up the Volume

If last season, designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne paid homage to New York with their cityscape designs, with their sophomore show they decided it was time to really represent its inhabitants.

The duo infused the collection with a street hip hop cool where a play on proportions was paired with a youthful « screw you » attitude, resulting in a raucously hip lineup. The midriff was a major player in the show with cropped tops, short voluminous bomber jackets and silk overalls leaving quite a bit of skin on display.

With the midriff left bare, like the center of an hourglass, the pair pumped up the volume on both their tops and bottoms. Comfy cashmere tracksuit pants, or slouchy trousers worked well with shrunken tops. Sporty red laces braided into the hip of silk slip dresses were both sexy and very very street.

Finally what urban dweller doesn’t have at least one message t-shirt in their closet? Chow and Osborne came up with a great new twist on the DKNY logo by branding back pockets of jeans with a number of misspelled or phonetic takes on the word. And at the end, they gave their own reinterpretation of what the four letters stood for with all the models wearing black sweat shirts saying things like “ Dazed Kids New York” “Don’t Knock New York” “Designers Know Nothing Yet”. After the show the models exploded out of the venue – dashing to their next appointment – wearing those sweatshirts out on the New York city streets, spreading the news that there is a cool new DKNY in town.
