DKNY has freshened up its image on London’s Old Bond Street with a newly refurbished 11,500-square-foot flagship that officially opens today and is warmer, brighter and more lifestyle driven. The new look reflects the aggressive new strategy at DKNY, stretching from international expansion to product improvements.
