DKNY customers have come to expect flirty, fashion-forward clothes each season, but the label really pulled out all its girly stops for pre-fall. The new collection is full of crocheted eyelet, buoyant floral and cherry prints, and sarong-style tie-waist skirts and dresses. A few of those elements mixed together nicely on one of the standout looks: a party frock with a teal collar, black lace sleeves, and a swingy A-line cut. Lace was a big story here. A short slipdress with a low back and a peplum pencil skirt were two of the notable pieces made from the stuff. On the subject of the peplum, it added charm to an otherwise simple T-shirt in cognac-colored leather. All in all? Nothing groundbreaking, but plenty of items for the contemporary label's fun-loving customer to add to her closet.
