Minimalist — that was the dress code for the day, and so it appeared to be. When we stepped into the store of DKNY in Ion Orchard, we found ourselves face-to-face with an assemblage of people mirroring this exact sentiment, ourselves included– donned in black and white, from head to toe.
It was a moment that reflected the launch of the latest instalment; the third capsule collection from DKNY x Opening Ceremony for this Spring/Summer 2014.
Over a total of 28 womenswear styles make up this collection, with a myriad of hats, shoes and bags from the 90’s design archives parading alongside their signature ready to wear pieces. They were stylish, meticulous and lavish.
Curated by stylist Jay Massacret and Opening Ceremony’s creative director Humberto Leon, the limited edition capsule essentially captures DKNY’s boldly branded sportswear with a throwback to memorabilia and the remarkable NYC cityscape of the 90s; a homage to DKNY’s very own golden era.
Here is a place where big city professional style fuses with downtown logo sportswear to produce something that remains fresh and relevant today.
Not to mention the candy buffet that greeted us in the middle of the store, filled with sweets, chocolates and pastries — it was indeed the DKNY style that we like!
The new DKNY x Opening Ceremony Spring/Summer 2014 collection is available at DKNY Ion Orchard, Level 3.
