Oh, how we have backed and forthed on this collection, darlings. Depending on our mood, the lighting, or the alignment of the planets, our opinion keeps changing on this one. On the one hand, it's a pretty good summation of Daniel's aesthetic and he clearly loves to do sportswear; on the other hand, it suffered from being just a little too catalogue-basic, not to mention the finishing issues and one or two (or more) choices that lead us to believe that Daniel needed a couple years' experience under his belt (both professionally and personally) to hammer out some of the problems.
As for models and styling, we have to laugh. The girls all looked great, but with their slightly ethnic, slightly aristocratic look coupled with the sexily tousled hair, he basically had 13 female versions of himself walking down that runway. Admit it, Daniel. You tried the clothes on a couple times, didn't you?
Let's start the show.
And the crowd goes "Hunh?"
Daniel darling, Classic American Sportswear may be your thing, but if we may make a suggestion: don't send a model down a Bryant Park runway in something that looks like it came from Wal-Mart. The colors are too washed out and the top makes her look heavy, which she almost definitely is not. We get that he was going for the "fresh and pretty" thing, but she looks like the prettiest teacher in her elementary school and honey, you should shoot for a little higher than that.
We like this one, but we don't think the boots were the right choice.
God we're bitches.
Compliments first: the pants are fine. In fact, they're great. Love the cut, love the fabric.
It's the TOP. Like a St. Pauli Girl on a ski vacation. The colors are drab and do nothing to the pants; the finishing looks terrible, the fabrics are too shiny, and it's just all puffy and pleated to an alarming extent. Like he got a new sewing machine and wanted to run it through its paces or something.
Part two tomorrow, bitches!
