The Next Big Thing: Dannijo, Spring ’14

-------

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.

DANNIJO SS14 Presentation

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.”

Zigzag to the Beat

-------

Smokey JonesLast night, M Missoni—Missoni’s younger, sportier sister—threw a summertime soiree at New York’s Le Bain, celebrating not only the season but also its collaborative soundtrack, dubbed “M Missoni Is for Music,” produced in tandem with Epic Records’ L.A. Reid. The only snafu? It felt more like early fall, with temperatures dipping into the low sixties—ostensibly chilly compared to Manhattan’s extreme heat of late.

“I’m just glad it’s not boiling,” said Harley Viera-Newton, first up on the deejay roster. Jumpers and jackets were soon shed, however, as Le Bain’s terrace filled up and thawed. Guests, including Nicky Hilton, Erin Heatherton, and Jessica Hart, could be seen mingling at the bar or snow-cone machine in flirty M Missoni minis.

Naturally, it wouldn’t be a Missoni party without some zigzag action, so M Missoni placed chevron-ed dry-erase place mats and markers along tabletops, inviting partygoers to graffiti at will. “My first Missoni memory has to be my mother’s matching hat and coat,” offered Hannah Bronfman. “The hat had a fitted, bonnet-like top but a large, flat brim that fanned out like a pizza pie.”

Stepping in for Ginny Blackmore, who was slated to perform last night but wasn’t feeling well, crooner Smokey Jones (above) previewed a handful of songs from her forthcoming album. Afterward, Chelsea Leyland took the reins from Viera-Newton, spinning until security shooed everyone out. At night’s end, Dannijo’s Danielle Snyder summed it up best: “It’s funny. We were just in Saint-Tropez. Everyone wears Missoni there. It’s like a uniform—iconic summer!”

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.

1. Alexander McQueen cape, $955, available at www.matchesfashion.com.

2. Dannijo bracelet, $220, available at www.dannijo.com.

Dannijo Fall 2013

-------

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.”
