Nick Grimshaw Radio 1 DJ took to the decks to provide the soundtrack floor fillers to get the party crowd started, where he was joined by Jude Law’s son Rafferty Law who opened the catwalk show. Male model Tom Gaskin of D1 models also walked in the runway for DKNY this season.
The sponsors of the event were Johnnie Walker Gold Reserve for beverages and Mercedes Benz. It was a full house and the DKNY PR Girl Aliza Licht would be proud.
Jessie looked great in a DKNY statement piece pastel pink suit teamed with chunky white platforms and a low cut blouse which showed off her lace lingerie. While the Saturday’s Mollie King was sporting a gold dress mini ensemble rubbing shoulders with celebrities including Lindsey Lohan, Chloe Green, Wretch 32, model Zara Martin and Mr Selfridge star Jeremy Piven was looking very dapper in a brown suit.
During the show we saw t-shirts/sportswear worn under well structured and fitted tailoring come down the runway, loose fitting oversized jackets teamed with white trousers, dark skinny jeans, and slouchy pants. Smart armband details gave the collection a little edge, while lux sportswear details were intertwined and combined with formal pieces to create contemporary ensembles.
Casual separate’s included jersey cotton sweaters, short sleeve printed shirts in sheer fabrics, loose fitting oversized-t-shirts tucked in at the waist. Some casual separates were cropped at mid arm length to create the illusion of layering and proportion. Collection colour schemes for spring summer evoked the true spirit of New York style inspired by dark navy, siren taxi yellow, pure white and contrast mono chrome tones.
I still remember the day I was treated to my first shopping trip in London in my early teens and it was at DKNY and will never forget it as everything fit me so well. The brand philosophy always meant my wardrobe was always a key statement in my everyday life to stay current, fresh and contemporary. It’s just perfect to take your ensemble from day into night.
The men’s fashion week will showcase the best of British menswear style SS15 which runs from June 15th to June 17th with a number of fashion industry events where the stars can show off their best fashion statements.
