Looks from the DKNY Fall 2011 collection

SHOW: DKNY (See the full runway collection)

THEME: New York mods

HAIR: Eugene Souleiman for Wella Professionals

MAKEUP: Charlotte Willer for Maybelline New York, Mike Potter for Knock Out Cosmetics

OVERALL TAKEAWAY: Bundling up never looked so good

It’s a mod, mod world at DKNY—at least when it comes to the styling. This wasn’t the Mary Quant mod we’ve seen rear up at shows in seasons past; it’s mod light: palatable, colorful, and easy to accessorize.

The big story here was outerwear. And with the turbulent weather lately, the coats were a welcome sight. From the black leather racing jacket to shearling coats (in black and cheetah print), the DKNY girl will certainly stay warm next winter. Our favorite was the dual-toned coat with leather sleeves.

Capes in black, cream, and henna orange were a chic variant on coats and blazers, though we didn’t spy armholes. Who needs function?

Trousers were cut slim and close to the leg; skirts were high above the knee, a nod to the mod theme. Minidresses were cute, albeit young. Colorblocked dresses in crepe de chine were pretty, though we were partial to the caramel wool pantsuit and a striped sweater dress.

The collection was in essence what DKNY does well: pretty, well-made separates ideal for a young girl to wear to her first real job—though we daresay the coats will make the rounds on the fashion circuit next winter.
