DKNY Resort Collection 2013

Style that speaks to how you feel and where you’re going. Day–into–evening items that dress up—a little or a lot. The shape is defined and framed, a sexy mix of sheer, opaque and shine. Colors are pure new york glam: black, latte and white, metallic gold, jazzberry, azurite, scarlett and hot pink.

It starts with the dress—simple, tailored and embellished. Short sleeved and sleeveless chemises with geometric cutouts at the neck. Tweeds feminized with illusion tops and sleeves. Satin charmeuse shifts with trompe l’oeil jet and gold jeweled necklines. Silk prints in abstract floral tapestries, animalia. Foil print lace dresses that catch the light. Little black party dresses— corseted, beaded and studded, glazed or polka dot laced, to the all–out fantasy of layered sequins, feathers and ruffles.

Tailoring is streamlined, molded and framed with black: micro or macro hounds tooth sculpts clean and modern. Winter white and silver tweeds freshen the palette. Tux–inspired separates come sexy sharp and satin–edged, in sleek jackets, cummerbund shorts and double–pleat tapered pants. And when the mood strikes for serious color, add in lipstick and hot pink tailored separates.

Sometimes you need just a piece to glam it up: a jeweled tee. A reversible satin baseball bomber. A reflective sequin or rectangle–pailette skirt. A faux fur fitted capelet to throw over anything. Finish it all with a satin/wool/shearling parka, or the splurge of a color blocked shearling coat, with an unexpected leather belt.

Pre–spring lightens the mood with airy pastels grounded by black— lemon chiffon, ballet, lavender air, moonstone blue and orange pastel. Geometric prints and pleated chiffon in black–framed dresses, floaty sheer silk shirts and sequined tees. Slim leather skirts or garment–dyed skinny jeans. And the perfect spring coats rain or shine— the wire taffeta jacket or the cotton trench.

Chic, colorful, fun. Sophisticated with just a bit of an edge. These are pieces to lift your spirits and your wardrobe.
