DKNY and Opening Ceremony go back to the 90s

Opening Ceremony and DKNY have collaborated on a new retro capsule collection featuring classic early 1990s pieces from the New York City fashion brand. 

Opening Ceremony knows a thing or two about capsule collections, but this latest project comes with a time-travel twist. The international label and luxury concept store has teamed up with DKNY to revisit some of the brand's classics from the early 1990s. 

"DKNY was a pioneer of streetwear fashion in the 90's. We have been longtime fans of the brand and were very excited to bring back select, quintessential styles that feel fresh even today," said Carol Lim, co-founder of Opening Ceremony.

DKNY made a solid dent in 1990s street culture with its youthful and accessible twist on luxury styles. From Friday, retro-hunters will be able to get their hands on 15 re-issued styles in the new line featuring body-con silhouettes, sportswear and New York-themed streetwear. 

"I have always loved Opening Ceremony. Their unique and creative point of view mixed with 90's throw backs are very reminiscent of DKNY's core DNA," said Jane Chung, DKNY's executive vice president of Design about the collaboration.

With a range of unisex tees as well as women's dresses and body-conscious pieces, the collection starts at $145.

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.

    Volkswagen brings new (ish) Jetta to New York along with Golf Sportwagen

    With its new President and CEO of America, Michael Horn, on stage in New York after just 100 days on the job, Volkswagen debuted its 2015 Jetta. You'd be forgiven for noticing little differences compared to the outgoing model, and in the words of Horn himself, the changes are indeed subtle. The most notable of those subtleties is the all-new 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor, offering 45 mpg highway and a modest increase of 10 hp. For VW, diesel is where it's at.

    With Vantage GT, Aston Martin races below $100,000

    Aston Martin is going downmarket, sort of. The 2015 Vantage GT, a sport-styled variant of Aston’s legendary flagship car, draws style and performance tips from their GT4 race cars, which will be running in North America this year. It’s also priced at $99,900, which shows that the market for these kinds of consumer sports cars has boomed in recent years.
