DKNY By Donna Karan Is Cool New Yorker For Spring 2013 At New York Fashion Week [PHOTOS]
Designer Donna Karan sent her DKNY spring 2013 collection down the runway on Monday, evoking a downtown, understated, cool sensibility her urban line is best known for.
"What's a New Yorker?" Karan wrote in her notes. "Someone who's ready for anything, day to night, street to chic. She loves a contradiction."
Karan's collection consisted of sporty denim and chambray pants and skirts, some paired with leather jackets and others with blazers. The palate was mostly white with pops of yellow, like a sleeved maxi dress and taxi-colored raincoat. DKNY showed some skin, too, with bodysuits, crop tops, mesh inserts and cut-outs.
Accessories ranged from slouchy and roomy tote bags to, yes, you guessed it, leather fanny packs. Yes, fanny packs -- those heinous 1980s hip bags, but this time updated for a casual cool New Yorker and not so out-of-place tourist.
