Weekly Wish List, New York Edition

August is just around the corner and we all know what that means… Fashion month is now just a few short weeks away! For a lot of industry folk, ‘fashion week’ can be something of a dirty word thanks to the sheer amount of stress it brings with it. Personally, I don’t think I’m ever going to get over the joy of being able to attend shows, parties and be a part of all the madness in between. Who knows, maybe in ten years time I’ll be bemoaning the sleep deprivation, high-heel induces injuries and champagne-induced hangovers that are as much a part of fashion week as the collections themselves but given how excited I feel just writing that, I doubt it. With just over a month to go, it’s high time to start planning our wardrobes. So to help, well, me along the way and generally get us all in the mood for four weeks of sartorial celebration I’ve decided to focus my next few wish lists on each of the four respective fashion cities. First up, New York…

DKNY Resort 2013

The DKNY resort 2013 collection was a major winner with me for many reasons. Not least, because the ever-savvy Donna Karan has created an array of pieces that everyone can wear come January, regardless of whether they’ll be escaping to sunnier climbs during the most miserable month of the year.

The chic leather separates would work every bit as beautifully layered over tights and under coats by DKNY girls braving the frosty streets of New York as they would paired with golden limbs and Grecian sandals by lucky so-and-so’s heading to a coastal paradise far, far away. The same goes for the colour-pop silks, embellished cocktail dresses and elegant neutrals. And as for the sleek tailoring, patterned knits and chubby fur number… Surely these looks are designed to put a spring in our step on a cold, Winter’s day?
