Brand name aside, Donna Karan is a designer who has always used her native city to inspire and guide her work. It’s intrinsic; it’s the DNA, and with her DKNY Fall 2014 runway show, she paid homage to the most densely populated city in the country with more zeal than ever.
I wore DKNY everywhere during my ‘90s college years. While friends donned Gap sweats, I rollerbladed around Santa Monica in a full DKNY bodysuit – racing stripes included (the colors matched my blades!). They laughed at my sense of commitment, but as it turns out, I was ahead of my time. For Spring 2014, DKNY has reissued iconic ‘90s RTW and accessories with Opening Ceremony.
TGIF! It’s the hardest day of the week to get through, so take your 15-minute break now and have a little fun, courtesy of DKNY. They want to get you in the spirit of the season with their latest project – the Not Your Ordinary holiday story. Basically, it’s Mad Libs, DKNY-style (yes, it’s just as awesome as it sounds), guaranteeing that it will top any true anecdote you’ve ever told.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of DKNY. It’s the perfect excuse for a party and the Spring 2014 runway show? The perfect venue! Things got off to a bang with the Beastie Boys’ “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” blasting as Joan Smalls walked out in a pair of jean overalls, a trench, and a baseball cap. It was street style in way that only DKNY can do.
