Designer Donna Karan burst onto the fashion scene with a clean, bold, and effortlessly chic collection that gave sophisticated, professional women pieces designed specifically for their needs. In 1989, Donna Karan’s relationship with her daughter inspired her to launch DKNY, a fresh take on the New York aesthetic meant to appeal to a younger market.
DKNY’s women’s wristwatches puts a youthful, fashion-forward spin on classic watch designs to create stylish yet accessible timepieces. Fashion-forward but understated, DKNY watches transition easily from a day in the office to a night on the town, with sophisticated leather straps and stainless steel bracelets in yellow and rose gold tones.
DKNY watches draw their inspiration from the streets of New York City. The Soho collection takes its name from the stylish neighborhood in lower Manhattan, where artists’ lofts commingle with upscale fashion boutiques. Soho watches reflect the neighborhood's style with a chic, uncluttered dial and sophisticated bracelet or leather strap band. The Astoria line also takes its name from a New York City neighborhood. Astoria watches pair a classic round face with a striking chain link bracelet in silver or rose gold-tone stainless steel. Like their namesake neighborhoods, the Soho and Astoria collections capture the essence of New York style.
DKNY’s collection of watches includes multiple stylish interpretations of the classic bracelet band. The City Link bangle watch has a round case and smooth bezel that complement a pared-down dial. The dial of the City Link watch is sophisticated in its simplicity, with minimal hour markers and a subtle gold-tone DKNY logo. Meanwhile, DKNY Crosswalk watches turn heads with a bold crossover bangle bracelet in silver or rose gold-tone stainless steel. DKNY’s Eastside watch has an elegant architectural look, with tapering solid stainless steel forming a bangle band in yellow and rose gold-tones.
The clean lines and classic colors of the DKNY Minetta line make these watches an ideal piece for the transition from the office to a night on the town. A round dial with black hour markers and gold-tone hour and minute hands pairs perfectly with a black leather strap or gold-tone bracelet band. Stylish but understated, these watches won’t look out of place on your morning commute or at a formal event. The Modernist line has a sophisticated monochromatic look, with bracelet, bezel, and dial all in the same rose gold-tone stainless steel.
DKNY Cityspire watches put an inventive twist on the typical watch crystal. In place of the usual smooth crystal dome protecting the dial, Cityspire watches feature a faceted scratch-resistant mineral crystal that recalls the cut of a precious gemstone. Cityspire watches have elegant black or white dials, surrounded by stainless steel and yellow or rose gold-tone bezels in geometric shapes that echo the cut of the crystal. Mesh bracelet bands and high-quality leather straps complement these unique pieces.
