The collection is still rooted in classic silhouettes, such as blazers, khakis and sweaters, but the pieces are leaner and more sophisticated than in past seasons. But even though the pieces may at first glance seem predictable, there are many hidden tweaks, such as concealed zippers in Windbreakers and reversible patterns in sweaters, as well as fabrics that blend together seamlessly to modernize the items, such as a washed-leather bomber with nylon sleeves. The hybrid blazer is a hallmark of the line along with waxed and resin-coated outerwear.
Pops of color such as lilac, menthol green and pale yellow mark the line’s second delivery followed by khakis and various shades of white for the heat of summer. The tailored clothing piece offers three options: the slimmer DeKalb silhouette along with the more traditional Duke and American options. Pure DKNY, the brand’s most casual offering, offers washed linens, slubby knits and garment-dyed cottons for a more vintage-inspired look.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
