Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne are the two names that appeared twice this week as the hot topic. Firstly, their Public School collection, which kept in sporty and elegant. And now, their debutant SS16 collection for DKNY, Donna Karan New York’s sister line. I must admit, I was quite happy when I discovered that these lads will take-over this line, that lately got infamous for cheap looking collections and Cara Delevigne overdose. And, as I supposed, their first collection for the New York-based brand was just as eponymous as their own. Even though it didn’t have much of a sparkle, it had few good looks – greatly tailored blazers; business-perfect, pin-striped dresses; desirable white sneakers worn with socks. The mesh dress with a tank-top under looked sexy and smart at the same time. Although the colour palette was “very Public School” (black & white), the collection had one major reference to the past of DKNY, which has unfortunately fallen into oblivion – the casual, power suit that stormed New York in the 90’s. Hopefully, Dao-Yi and Maxwell will make their DKNY language broader next season.
