For this first DKNY Spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection designed by Dao-Yi Chao and Maxwell Osborne—the co-founders of the street clothing line Public School—the pinstriped power suit was constructed and deconstructed. The palette was white, all shades of gray, and black.
Founder: Donna Karan
Year Established: 1989
Designer: Dao-Yi Chao and Maxwell Osborne, 2015
Spring 2016 Inspiration: ‘90s pinstriped power suit.
Star Pieces: The white, double-breasted coat dress is a timeless staple.
The Middle Eastern Sale: If the deconstructed pinstriped blazer is your staple, and Jean Paul Gaultier is out of your price range, you’ll find something to your liking here.
Drawbacks: The designers’ background is in menswear, and at times, it was too apparent.
