MODERN SAMPLER
New York: DKNY looked a lot less urban for Pre-Fall 2012, nearly abandoning recent forays into color blocking and stripes in favor of frilly lace and Celiné-inspired head-to-toe florals. Thankfully, some of the label’s sleekness remained, mostly communicated via bright, monochromatic blouse and skirt combinations, a dimensional, linear scarf print, and leather pieces such as flirtatious A-line skirts and a molded peplum t-shirt. Within the group of feminine looks, knife pleats kept skirts sharp and a simple white lace top proved versatile, but overall the collection seemed to lack this label’s usual wearable cohesion. —Nina Stotler
