Everyone knows their Marcs from their Calvins. But as fashion month kicks into gear, we’ll be spotlighting the up-and-coming designers and indie brands whose names you’ll want to remember.
Label: Dannijo, by Jodie Snyder Morel and Danielle Snyder
Need to Know: Hot off the celebration of Dannijo’s fifth anniversary, the designing sister duo took Spring ’14 to the dark side with their aptly titled collection Noir, which they presented at Industria Studios in the West Village last night. The range, which models wore while lounging around a midcentury-style movie set, is a departure from the label’s consistently cheerful, colorful baubles. And as the name reflects, it’s an homage to the women of black-and-white film noir. Railroad-track chokers, pendants, and signature Dannijo cuffs featured contrasting shades of black and white muted stones, with pops of teal and pink. On hand to fete the line were such Dannijo supporters as Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Rashida Jones, Samantha Ronson, and a bevy of models straight off the runway, including Hilary Rhoda and Coco Rocha.

“I’ve been keeping it very secret,” explained fashion photographer and filmmaker Steven Sebring of his latest project, Revolution, which debuted at New York’s 69th Regiment Armory last night. “Just testing the Rig and seeing what it can do—there isn’t anything else like it.” The “Rig” is Sebring’s name for the new massive “geodome” he created—a silver sphere lined with a hundred cameras on wheels. It took three years of personally funded development to complete the apparatus, which is designed to capture the so-called fourth dimension (or the “truly true,” as the artist defines it), and record its subjects’ every move—from every angle—as it spins.
Model Coco Rocha is the star of Sebring’s vision (although longtime friend and onetime subject Patti Smith, as well as a tai-chi master from his building, also make appearances), and is shown dancing, leaping, and shifting in a series of videos, photographs, and sculptural works. “This is the first art exhibition I’ve ever been a part of,” offered Rocha. “I put my Irish dancing shoes on and came into Steven’s studio again and again. And it had nothing to do with editorial, nothing to do with making money or a campaign.” Continue Reading “Steven Sebring, Now in 4-D” »
