DKNY on The Avenue, Spinningfields /Series Events

The DKNY Mens SS12 mini fashion show, at their store on The Avenue in Manchester last week, summed up this season: dismal, wet and discounted.

A little late for a SS12 show, don't you think? Well, instead of taking the opportunity to showcase a snippet of the coming season, DKNY Mens used their turn at hosting the weekly /Series events to showcase clothes we seen before and that are now on sale. Still, not that much of a wasted opportunity, the store was nearly empty because of the savage downpour.

Still, I had a couple of drinkies with the lovely Sarah of Fashion Dotty and my partner in fashion-crime, Christopher, who also got my birthday present from the DKNY rails! So, not all was lost!

Christopher bought me these gorgeous cobalt blue trousers, as seen in the show. 

They fit like a dream and, in Christopher's words, make my arse look "crackin'" - bonus!

I've been looking for a pair of trousers in this colour for, and I'm not exaggerating, years. I've never found a pair that fit right, looked right or that I could afford. Whilst these only tick two of the three boxes, I wasn't the one forking out - another bonus!

Now for some shots without cats in them...

Not a bad bag...

Kind of what DKNY does best...
