DKNY Fall 2014: Not Always the Most Cohesive or Wearable (Runway Review)



The Scene: Among the front row guests were Rita Ora, who will appear in an upcoming DKNY fragrance campaign and currently appears in DKNY's spring ready-to-wear campaign, and Victoria Justice.

The Inspiration: A celebration of cultures and subcultures. In keeping with that, the show was modeled by a mix of models and "real women."

The Look: True to its inspiration, the show was a mash-up of vibrant statement coats, puffer jackets, loose and casual patterned dresses, slip dresses, lace shift dresses, menswear-inspired suiting, varsity jackets, fur-accented coats as well as separates and houndstooth in various iterations.

The Accessories: Flat platform shoes, platform sneakers, pointed-toe heeled boots, bowling bags, backpacks and satchels.

The Beauty: It was not one-size-fits-all with personalized hairstyles and makeup looks — even nail colors came in three varieties.

The Takeaway: Not always the most cohesive or wearable, the collection should nonetheless be applauded for trying to empower men and women from all walks of life.
