NEW YORK, Jul 5, 2012/ — For Holiday and Pre-Spring 2013, DKNY brings you in the mood with styles that speak to how you feel and where you’re going – day-into-evening items that dress up a little bit 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, scarlet and hot pink.
It starts with the dress – simple, tailored and embellished. Short sleeved and sleeveless chemises with geometric cut outs 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 and animalia.
Foil print lace dresses that catch light; little black party dresses corseted, beaded and studded, glazed or polka dot laced, to the all-out fantasy of layered sequins, feather and ruffles.
Tailoring is streamlined, molded and framed with black: micro or macro houndstooth sculpts clean and modern. Winter white and silver tweeds freshen the palette. Tux-inspired separates come very sharp and satin-edged, in sleek jackets, cummerbund shorts and double-pleat tapered pants. And 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 lights 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 edge. These are pieces to lift your spirits and your wardrobe.
