We all know what to expect at a DKNY resort collection cute,girly,commercial new york girl clothes perfect for that young intern at marie clarie mag ;) This resort collection was not much different the show started with great work black looks my favorite was a lace jacket and skirt with a cute print blouse. There was a lot of work clothes for that PLAIN girl she isn't rocking that mcqueen jacket she's wearing a dull black blazer or plain purple dress with a little black that kind of annoyed me everything in this collection was been there done that lets try something new! I found the furs more fun and eccentric because its resort this girl just wants to wear that fur bitch, how fab! The party looks were nothing new but cute very blake lively 2008 WHEN THAT LOOK WAS IN! But looking at these looks its not totes cringe ehh its cute but boring but its resort! But chanel,bottega and erdem were all fab whats your excuse DKNY?? But love this line and its girl but can this girl be a little more exciting during resort season! BTW not totes dissing this collection, well maybe i am but i dont think its ugly it kind of works but " commercial boredom" is my caption for this collection! What did you think???

The dkny showed was "very new york" sleek and cool! The show opened with a series of black sleek looks with leather accents there were about 10+ final the collection progressed into a navy blue floral print and eventually a series of amazing mongolian furs in blacks,greys and whine tones. leather was the continuing cool factor throughout the collection!!! the silhouettes were mostly short and cute very DKNY very new york!!. there were several large leather corset belts that defined the waist and gave the looks more of a punch. outerwear was fab and so was the party dress there were several longer flowing dresses in black and blue and then to finish the collection a series of short secy.. little black dress with a fun movement and flare to them. overall the collection was cute, cool sleek and very new york!!!
