New York Fashion Week continues! Here are highlights from 4 of the best shows of the past day.
Who knew that one of the season’s most memorable collection would come from DKNY? Donna Karan mixed exceedingly wearable pieces like black and camel coats and neutral colorblocked day dresses with oversized 90s-inspired separates, many done in wild animal print, and quilted jackets and tops for a bold collection that was aptly titled “Juxta-Posed.”

The season brought a return to the designer’s roots including a slew of wrap dresses. The 70s touches didn’t stop there, however. The collection was rife with vibrant prints, colorblocking and halter tops — all of which were fashioned into the designer’s signature slinky dresses, separates and jumpsuits. In a testament to DVF’s pulse on the modern, none of the looks, even the most wildly printed and metallic, felt dated.
Tommy Hilfiger showed a collection that gave us classic prep with a British flair — think plaid, argyle, tartans and herringbone. Silhouettes tended towards 60s mod and Hilfiger made a strong case for outerwear, showing a coat, parka, jacket or blazer over nearly every look.
Done in a color palette that mixed neutral shades like taupe, camel, black and gray with bright pops of yellow and blue, Victoria Beckham continued on with the sportier direction she started off on last season without sacrificing an inch of sex appeal. Fitted cocktail and day dresses cinched tightly at the waist with slender belts were shown alongside roomy outerwear, loosely tailored long skirts and wider proportioned separates for a collection that perfectly balanced a mix of silhouettes.
