Surprise! Here’s the First Look at Cara Delevingne’s New DKNY Collection

As if ‘Cara Day’ couldn’t get any better here at Modelinia the birthday girl herself has gone ahead and gifted us with an extra special treat: a first look at her long-awaited DKNY collection!

After appearing in several of the brand’s ad campaigns, Cara makes her design debut today with the release of a 15-piece capsule collection, which you can now preview in the slideshow below.  The ‘mostly unisex’ pieces are all very sporty — you’ll find track pants with “Cara” emblazoned on the waistband, tank tops, bomber jackets and even onesies — with prices ranging from $70 (for the beanies) to $375 (for the leather jacket).  The collection will be available for purchase at DKNY’s Madison Avenue store, Bloomingdale’s 59th St. store, and Shopbop come October 15.

Being the super-talented, creative individual that she is, it comes as no surprise that Cara was heavily involved in the collaborative process right down to the press release, which she wrote.  In it, she describes how the collection grew out of her close working relationship with the brand.  She also makes the point that there are “no rules” for wearing the collection: “just opportunities.”

Model Beauty Report: Cara Delevingne’s Quick and Easy Summer Hair Solution

Just last week we were toting the benefits of a simple messy topknot and while we certainly haven’t changed our tune any—  just look at how care-free and beautiful these ladies look— we are making one small amendment to our position because sometimes even the best of buns need a little something extra.  In this case, we’re referring to that great summer staple, the headscarf— an accessory that appears to have gotten Cara Delevingne‘s sartorial approval.  The soon-to-be 22-year-old model was spotted working a colorful printed square headscarf by Sarah and Sorrentino on the streets of London last week and unsurprisingly, we’re now completely obsessed!  As Cara proves, the summer accessory is a quick and easy way to elevate a wispy chignon, adding a bright pop of color (or edge should you should choose to rock a black bandana instead) to any off-duty uniform.  Best of all, a silk scarf works just as easily with a sky-high ponytail or messy side-braid as it does a relaxed topknot, giving you a plethora of options to play with in the remaining weeks of summer.

To help you get started, we scoured the internet and rounded up 10 of the hottest summer scarves to buy now.  Shop our editor’s top picks in the slideshow below!
