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.”
Harvey Nichols has long been the hub of London fashion, but it may soon be the hub of the London youthquake, too. The city’s big-spending hip kids have evidently made an impression on the august retailer, and the result is a new fourth-floor boutique called, appropriately enough, the Hub. Enter the fresh blood!
Daisy Lowe, Amber LeBon, and Samantha Ronson all turned out at the outdoor picnic Harvey Nicks threw to celebrate its revamped boutique, where they’ll no doubt find plenty to love. The designers that the London new guard can’t get enough of—Markus Lupfer, Preen, Richard Chai Love, Peter Pilotto, Meadham Kirchhoff—are all on the racks, as are a few bits and bobs like Kidrobot toys and headphones. The party, in fact, felt more like a music festival than a stodgy store fête—tunes by Ronson, who manned the DJ booth; food by the restaurant of choice for the under-30 crowd, Bistrotheque. And in true rock style, the fest is taking the show on the road: The party continues for the next three days, hitting Southbank, Notting Hill, and Spitalfields. It’s the sort of event likely to be greeted with lighters raised—which makes it all the more canny that those, too, will be Hub staples going forward.
