Junglepussy and Va$htie walk in an homage to New York's street style – featuring gelled baby hair, neoprene bombers and stack-soled trainers

Initial reaction:

While Donna Karan’s AW14 collection was an homage to New York street style, this season was a lot more Bronx, a lot less Lower East Side.

New York state of mind:

For SS15 the American designer tapped into the grittier side of New York, presenting a SS15 collection which saw models sport pigtail French braids with gelled baby hair and chokers. Neoprene bombers were teamed with A-line skirts, whilst print sandals, foam platform trainers and even hybrids of the two provided the footwear.

Cult cast:

Renowned for her casting, Karan didn’t disappoint – New Yorkers like Junglepussy, Va$htie, Brandee Brown and Lauren Switzer walked the runway along with Dazed cover stars Binx Walton and Natalie Westling

Last season, Angel Haze and A$AP Illz walked in a show that featured leather dresses combined with New York Yankees caps. See it below:
