Instead of hearing the conventional blast of music, intense drumming could be heard half a mile away at the Daryl K Spring/Summer 2012 show. But then again, Daryl Kerrigan is anything but conventional. Located in a little warehouse with an intimate crowd, Daryl Kerrigan showed a collection that hipsters from all around the world would appreciate. Staying true to the 90s era, the Daryl K Spring/Summer 2012 collection, giving those who were born into the mellinium a chance to wear a piece of a vintage-inspired concept and others a familiar nostalgia.
Chiffon, Sheers, and off-white/light gray colours practically dominated the Daryl K Spring/Summer 2012 collection. A mixture of hard and feminine, Daryl Kerrigan integrated these both concepts to create the perfect outfit for those who are young at art. Very like her own style, you will see flowy silhouettes, relaxed fits, and punk elements incorporated into each outfit. In addition, the models weren’t limited in their runway walks – they were able to do dance kicks and flap their arms, creating a very aerodynamic atmosphere.
2. Art Coming to Life
Aside from the fluid-like collection, what really stole the show was her printed collection. In collaboration with New York based artist, Spencer Sweeney, Daryl Kerrigan created a small part of her Spring/Summer 2012 collection that included his art prints. Resembling like splattered paint, each piece paid tribute to both designer and artist, manifesting a true work of live art.
When I saw this fella with his spiked up vest and black skirt, I knew I had to snap a photo of him. He loved the Daryl K show and thought the collection had a lot of “revival elements” and was “tastefully done.” Rocking his vintage denim vest and diy embellishments, he definitely showed up with the right attire.
3. Hope & Wolverine – Daryl’s Friends
In traditional runway shows, you’ll hardly see pets roaming around, so it was a delight to see one of Daryl’s friends showing up with her doggie, Wolverine. Her sheer top and statement choker necklace, purchased from a local New York designer, showed her New York roots evidently.
