The DKNY collection for spring-summer 2009 was based on sport clothing and fluorescent colors. Now, its collection for next autumn-winter (2009 / 2010) changes radically to show us some designs with a very feminine, sober and elegant style. We believe this is a trend that will continue throughout several fashion shows.
The designs of this collection are very slender and tight to the body, with skirts that fall below the knee and short jackets with a style that Victoria Beckham would love (of course, if we see Victoria is buying clothing at DKNY stores, then it will be a clear signal that the crisis is really severe). Also, wide belts are present on this collection, as well as coats with a rounded shape and short sleeves.
The palette of colors is typical of the winter: red tones combined with black, gray and green. Also, some prints are used: particularly lines, houndstooth prints, and a small dose of animal prints, which were very popular recently.
It seems DKNY has abandoned its “stylistic experiments”, at least for the moment. Maybe due to the tough times we’re in. Instead, the clothing store is playing safe by creating a collection designed to be easy to sell, with classic designs that are always in fashion, targeted to a wide range of women. Now, we have to wait to see this collection available at the stores.
