Donna Karan achieved a balance between modernity and the urban heritage of DKNY with her fall men’s wear collection. Shown at a Lower East Side restaurant, the line was heavy on suits, continuing a trend seen on the European runways. Single- and double-breasted jackets in two- and three-button models were featured in various shades of gray — the key color of the season. Sportswear included fisherman sweaters with elbow patches, cardigans and garment-dyed cords, as well as nylon parkas, which were worn over blazers, and puffy vests over slim suits. The overall theme was modern military, historically accurate but updated to be cleaner and trimmer.
