DKNY F/W '10

DKNY was all about tailored jackets, lean silhouettes, and high hemlines - very schoolgirl chic. Combined with equestrian details, such as riding caps and leather trims, the overall look of the collection felt American preppy, yet in a way that felt modern and tres sexy.
The minkskirts really caught my eye in this collection (IS THAT A LEATHER MINIKILT I MUST HAVE???), as did the unique take on geometric colorblocking, maybe it's making a comeback after taking a year off? I also loved the slouch accents: long knit scarves and cozy cardigans!
I was sitting right behind front row celebs Alison Brie of "Mad Men" and "Community," Poppy Delevigne - UK model and socialite, upcoming musician Little Boots and actress and singer Keke Palmer. I love Alison, who plays Annie on "Community," but totally did not recognize her without the hair baretted back!
