It's hard to tell which is more awesome: 15 archived DKNY pieces from the first half of the '90s will land at international Opening Ceremony stores and online this Friday OR Cara Delevingne modeling the pieces with multiple tiny buns a la Gwen Stefani and New Age yoga instructors of yore. Either way, nostalgia sensors everywhere are going haywire.
OC cofounder Carol Lim summed the collection up saying, "DKNY was a pioneer of streetwear fashion in the Nineties. We have been longtime fans of the brand and were very excited to bring back select, quintessential styles that feel fresh even today." The last part is definitely a matter of opinion (the other one being the pieces are irrevocably and unabashedly '90s), but OC knows that there's always room for a good throwback in most wardrobes. Look forward to hooded dress from 1994, the famous New York skyline t-shirt originally from 1992, and a bodysuit, leggings, and hooded jumpsuit from 1991, among others. Retail prices range from $145 to $665.
