DKNY Jeans hit the streets for spring. The brand’s new ad campaign, conceived by Laird + Partners, was shot by Scott Schuman in his famous “The Sartorialist” format.

The ads showcase a mix of New York notables including Sean Lennon, Daisy Lowe, DJ Coleman, Luc Worrell and Chanel Iman. The campaign is a departure for the DKNY Jeans brand.

He brings such a freshness to street style.” The ads each showcase an individual in a caught-on-the-street style in several

areas of the city. The idea, Cohen said, was to highlight a broad spectrum of personal styles, which can easily be translated from the streets of New York to a suburban mall.

The ads will hit in time for Spring.
