As if to reassert her position as the designer of the most quintessentially New York brand in the industry, Donna Karan's Spring 2013 DKNY show was a love letter to the city that never sleeps written in black, white, and taxicab yellow.

The clothes, "born and inspired by life in the city," according to the show notes, were classic DKNY — they perfectly blended the sporty athleticism women need to make it through pedestrian traffic with an unpretentious elegance. Clean-lined dresses and skirts hit just above the knee with wide perforated borders, while neoprene jersey dresses were accented with mesh panels that showed a little skin. Leather pieces, like a metallic silver bomber jacket and a rich brown dress, added a little edge, and the yellow garments — which included a shirt, a gown, a swimsuit, and the long windbreaker Karan wore to take her bow — were as eye-catching as a cab on a busy street.

This show also included pieces from DKNY's secondary lines DKNY Jeans and pureDKNY, and the denim pieces blended seamlessly with the rest of the collection. After all, city girls need good jeans just as much as they need little black dresses and silk button-ups.
