90s Girl Bands Inspired DKNY Fall 2016

Since Public School's Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow took over at DKNY last season, the brand has evolved a lotAlthough we loved their debut collection, we felt like it strayed from its Donna Karan origins perhaps a bit too much.  For Fall/Winter 2016 however, the duo captured the best of both worlds, bringing in elements from DKNY's 25 year heritage with a new and fresh attitude.  Models like Imaan Hammam, Adwoa Aboah, and Taylor Hill catwalked to Jennifer Hudson's live performance while decked out in long layers, undone tailoring, and cheeky logo references ("We own that" and "insert logo here.")  Shearling, sweatshirt dresses, and wide pants gave a 90s feel that the designers credited to girl bands.  The result?  A collection that all the cool kids will be rocking come next fall.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
