There was a celebratory energy in the air at the DKNY
Spring runway show, which officially marked the label's 25th anniversary, a.k.a. #DKNY25. Donna Karan and company took the occasion to revisit some of the line's greatest hits, ranging from streetwear staples (a focal point since the beginning) like sporty parkas, bodysuits, and track pants—all plastered with bold DKNY logos—to the slinky, low-backed "naked dress" made infamous by Carrie Bradshaw. Joan Smalls kicked things off in a pair of baggy, tapered denim overalls, paired with a crisp button-up and a menswear-inspired blazer, then topped with a swingy trench and baseball cap. The collection swiftly transitioned through a dozen or so distinct moments, including a series of cool bandanna-printed looks, pastel-colored tailoring, and fit-and-flare neoprene frocks. Then Karlie Kloss took the final turn in a fiery red bias-cut satin-backed crepe gown and a pair of wedge sneakers. Rita Ora, the current face of DKNY, ended things on a high note by dancing down the runway to "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party)."
