Flashy metallic sequins and vampy black lace are typically reserved for a night out on the town, but the new DKNY Resort collection translated those glam materials into everyday looks by incorporating them into sporty silhouettes. Bomber jackets, for example, came in gold leather or encrusted with allover sequins, while updated track pants done in silver-foiled French terry were backed in lightweight crepe. Styled with tailored jackets or capes and pointy heels—as they were in the lookbook—many of those elevated athletic pieces could easily transition to evening. Other standouts that achieved this high-low mix included flouncy day dresses cut from a spongy technical mesh, as well as an embellished sweatshirt shown with a black crocheted maxi skirt. All in all, a successful, modern balancing act.
