DKNY, the secondary label of fashion designer Donna Karan, is as tied to New York City in the American mind as "I ♥ NY" t-shirts and rude cabbies. Nicknamed “The Queen of Seventh Avenue,” Karan launched DKNY in 1988 to bring young women into her fold. DKNY’s collection of chic, classic outerwear features expertly tailored designs to suit every season — from quilted trench coats and understated lightweight jackets for women, to military-style, wool-blend jackets for men. Aside from outerwear, DKNY offers a full range of wardrobe essentials, including dresses, shoes, hosiery, wallets and handbags, Intimates and shapewear, and perfume for women; underwear, everything-in-betweenwear, suiting, and fragrances for men; and watches for both. Though Karan sold her original collection and DKNY to LVMH Moët Hennessy in 1996, she’s remained active in both brands as a designer — winning the CFDA’s Lifetime Achievement Award and cementing her place in the pantheon of American fashion.
