I attended the Danier Spring Summer 2011 preview a few months back and got to play with some of the pieces that will be available in store soon.
Exploration is central this season, unveiled through safari silhouettes and tribal details. Graphic animal prints and exotic Moroccan-inspired embroidery are incorporated into accessories, while utilitarian items like a leather trench or slim-cut bomber are sure to be adopted as wardrobe staples for the season.
Accessories and garments in an upbeat palette of poppy, fuchsia, violet, teal and citrus make for daring dressing this season. Using colour as the inspiration and statement point of an outfit, DANIER’s collection invites a pop of interest into your wardrobe with a multitude of hothouse hues. Whether it’s a bright and bold accessory or an eye-popping bomber, this season colour takes center stage.
Finally, sporting gear is made glamorous with the new take on athletic chic. A lineup of slick sports-style separates make up this season’s all stars. From striped hoodies and tanks too cool for the gym, to micro shorts and perforated skirts to show off great gams, these easy, pared-down pieces are essentials to off-duty dressing
Colour is very big for Danier this season and I’m happy to see other choices than your standard black and brown available.
I really like the ombre treatment on this jacket.
This ivory leather trench coat is one of the standouts of the season. I predict this one will sell out pretty quickly.
Here is a slideshow of the photos I took at the Preview.
