Designers: Daniel Silver and Steven Cox
Location: Industria Studio
Crowd: Brian Coats, Luigi Tedini, Steven Kolb, Eric Wilson, Patrick McDonald.
Inspiration: "Us," said Daniel Silver. "It's always about us. Each season begins where the last season left off."
First Impressions: Tempering their more avant-garde leanings, the DB duo sent out a gorgeous collection of lightweight suits, waxed cotton jackets, pleated trousers and organza parkas in murky solids and abstract florals prints. The show was dedicated to Cox's mother, Diane, who had passed away three weeks prior, and the lineup reflected the idea of death and rebirth, with somber black suits giving way to floral separates that seemed to signal the start of spring and, with it, the sprouting seeds of hope and renewal.
Standout Piece(s): A snug black blazer atop roomy nylon trousers, a sleeveless heather grey hoodie with matching pants (which added up to a very luxe tracksuit), and a series of rose print shirts, shorts and anoraks in lush shades of pink and purple.
