    Calling it right now — 2011 revisited Versace, 2012 revamped Kenzo, and in 2013, your old-school DKNY jackets and windbreakers are going to be hotly coveted items. Opening Ceremony knows this, and it appears Madam Karan does as well, for her sporty, easy-to-wear, animal print-heavy fall '13 collection is richly scented with nostalgia.

    Loose and slouchy '90s-style turtlenecks make up sweater dresses, the abundance of beanies feels like TLC at their most chic, and nearly every offering comes with a spot of leopard. But DKNY isn't merely "looking back"; Donna's younger brand seems to be incorporating the shoulders, necks, and lengths of a decade or two earlier but adding a particularly modern twist. An array of textures that are particularly "now" included neoprene, leather, and rich wool, and the retro-esque menswear silhouette feels particularly feminine with fitted, sloped shoulders. And no matter your decade, the compact cheetah-printed bags are a cheeky pleaser.

    DKNY has brought back youthful streetwear and a real New York vibe (the models walked to a mash-up of "New York, New York" and Biggie's "J.U.I.C.Y"), but without the Kangol hats or sparkly logo shirts. Oh DKNY, for being so classic, you look so fresh.
