DKNY SS17

This season designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne explored new meanings in the codes of DKNY, in which the aspirational meets the practical. "The resulting collection resides in a futuristic place called Neo Soho," they revealed in their show notes. Taking place on the Highline, with after-hours Manhattan twinkling below, the design duo paraded a highly technical mix of sportswear with tailoring to produce a contemporary wardrobe that can deftly be mixed and matched.

With Bella Hadid opening the show in a hooded playsuit that had tuxedo accents, the line-up comprised layered knits worn back-to-front, off-the-shoulder or tied around the body, power suits made from high-tech fabrics, tulle eveningwear with athletic accents and silky hooded capes that would look as good over a pair of jeans as topping a cocktail dress. The colour palette was gutsy and energetic, with its mix of red, orange and myriad shades of blue.

Likewise, accessories were confidently reimagined, with backpacks decorated with bungee straps (recalling the fastenings on the anoraks that topped many of the looks), and multi-hued belt bags that were the very definition of sports utility.
