If the return of X-Girl or Bon Qui Qui (for Alexander Wang) is any kind of indication, it seems the fashion industry is not done indulging in ’90s nostalgia. And with today’s news that DKNY is teaming up with the cool kids at Opening Ceremony to reissue 15 styles from from the label’s early ’90s archives, we may have reached ’90s-nostalgia-saturation.
Not that we’re complaining.
This is the DKNY that Biggie rapped about (“I put hoes in NY onto DKNY”). The iconic skyline logo tees, cropped puffers, hoodies, and bodysuits are all back, starting tomorrow, February 1, at Opening Ceremony stores and at Opening Ceremony online.
“DKNY was a pioneer of streetwear fashion in the 90’s,” said Opening Ceremony co-founder Carol Lim. “We have been longtime fans of the brand and were very excited to bring back select, quintessential styles that feel fresh even today.”
Jane Chung, Executive Vice President of Design for DKNY, said that Opening Ceremony’s “unique and creative point of view mixed with ’90s throw backs are very reminiscent of DKNY’s core DNA.” “They were a natural partner to reissue iconic styles from our early years,” she added.
The only difference between this reissue and the original DKNY gear? The price. The collection will range from $145 for tees to $665 for outerwear. So you’ve really gotta love the ’90s to get behind this collab.
