“We both grew up in New York and DKNY has always been part of the landscape of this city in our formative years as designers and as New Yorkers,” the pair said in a statement. “It evokes everything our city was always about—energy, disruption, new thinking and transcending all boundaries.”

In September, when they debut their first collection for the brand, we’ll see if their designs are as well.
