A Fashion Week Blitz: Daniel Silverstain S/S 16

So, Mercury is back in retrograde. Can you feel it? I definitely can. This past week seems to have evaporated into a puff of pink smoke, leaving in its wake nothing but sheer chaos. So, while I was temporarily on a blissful, hooray-for-fall tip, I am now white-knuckling-it until things settle down a bit. C’est la vie!

All chaos talk aside, I will admit that I only made it to one show during the entirety of NYFW. Between our blissful trip to the Hudson River Valley (more on that later…) and the aforementioned retrograding throwing a few curve balls my way, it was all I could seem to fit into my schedule. But honestly, if I were to make it to any presentations, I am so happy that it was Daniel Silverstain!

Last season was the first time I encountered Silverstain’s collections, and I immediately felt a fondness for his designs and for his philosophies. His creations, calling upon the aura of the original jetsetters, introduced pops of lucious color meant to evoke the untapped, far-reaching landscapes that the “New Tourists” of the 1960’s would have encountered. In general, Silverstain’s designs translate a feeling of intrepidness, manifested in futuristic silhouettes that suggest intergalactic exploration.

His Spring/Summer 2016 collection offered up many of the same gems, kicking-off with an exciting, vintage inspired invitation declaring “Redez-Vous a Montreal!” and reminding us to pack our cameras (apportez votre appareil!). The models walked down metallic, silver runways sporting clothes that can only be described as cosmic hostess uniforms in a 1960 meets 2050 parallel universe with a bit of interstellar seductress flair. The results were totally inspiring and trend-provoking.

So happy to share these photos with you! Looking forward to seeing Daniel Silverstain next season, and hopefully making it to a few more shows…
