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.
She Says: “We’ve always worked off this concept of duality,” said Danielle Snyder. “This woman is elegant yet bold, romantic yet dangerous. It’s black contrasting with a pop of spring.”
From bedazzled ear cuffs to oversize bib necklaces, statement jewelry—in its many iterations—never seems to go out of style.

With Coachella kicking off this weekend, the fashion set is flocking westward, and that means it’s high time to invest in some festival-appropriate duds. Things are bound to get mussed up in the desert, so pre-distressed threads, such as Ksubi’s cutoff shorts and Frye’s stonewashed leather boots, are essentials. That being said, a few luxe, concert-friendly accents, like Alexander McQueen’s printed cape, can go a long way. Shop our picks from Diesel, Dannijo, and more, below.

Label: Dannijo, designed by Jodie and Danielle Snyder
Need to Know: For their Fall 2013 presentation, titled “Vanities,” Dannijo designers Jodie and Danielle Snyder turned the Jane Hotel’s ballroom into a scene out of Dynasty, where models, draped in long-sleeve velvet gowns, sat dripping in the label’s colorful, oversize statement jewelry, which was featured in bold shades of ruby red, emerald green, and clear oxidized crystal. The collection was inspired in part by eighties opulence, specifically in homage to Elizabeth Taylor, and also by vanities of today. In discussing her own take on vanity, cohost and actress Rashida Jones admitted to being tormented by the word. “I have a weird relationship with vanity because I feel like it’s part of my job to be vain, but it’s something I abhor and don’t want to cultivate in myself,” she said. The scene soon turned into a party when singer Angela McCluskey performed for the crowd that included Hilary Rhoda and Coco Rocha.
She Says: “We thought, If Elizabeth Taylor were still around, what would she wear?” said Danielle Snyder. “She was known for beautiful, ornate fine jewelry but wanted to take red-carpet and black-tie jewelry and work backward. It’s easy to take jewelry and make it day-to-night, but it’s hard to take night jewelry and wear it during the day. This collection can be evening and worn for black-tie, but it gives a rocker-glam element to jeans and a tee.”
