24 Sep NYFW: DKNY SS16
It was a sharp sartorial show for DKNY at NYFW, fine-tuned tailoring placing the power with the purse in SS16. A neutral palette of white, black, grey and navy punctuated with screen prints of the respective city’s skyline – buttoned collars, high flying necklines and the humble pin-stripe joining SS16’s pleat as top-note trends.
Continuing their alliance with DKNY was Anaka’s first choice, Wella Professionals. Creative Director and editorial genius Euegene Souleiman met the minimalist brief with matched sophistication – understated, uniform elegance suitable for any woman, any time.
“I love the simplicity of this look. The blend of the deep masculine side-parting at the front and softer, feminine texture through the lengths feels very modern, but it has a classically handsome beauty at the same time,” Eugene said. “It’s the kind of look I imagine Lauren Bacall would wear if she was a young woman today – graphic, powerful and polished,” said Eugene.
Eugene referenced Wella Professionals’ Stay Firm Spray and Perfect Setting Lotion as his style curators for the show, two of Anaka’s hero products ready and waiting to transform you into a modern Lauren Bacall this spring.
