The first thing to note about the DKNY Fall 2014 show was its eclectic cast. Nearly half of the 55 total looks were modeled by real New Yorkers, including familiar faces, among them rapper Angel Haze and It girl DJs Hannah Bronfman and Chelsea Leyland.

More recognizable characters were also present, including contemporary artists, pro skateboarders, nightlife hosts and more. They lent a certain credibility to urban staples like functional black parkas with fur hoods, puffer coats and bomber jackets made for conquering the city's sidewalks. Karan touched on a variety of salable themes for Fall, while graphic Houndstooth was featured on both a needle-punched tweed car coat as well as a printed tank dress paneled with lace. The menswear-inspired group gave way to a cool series.
