With a design pedigree that includes time served in the studios of Emanuel Ungaro haute couture, Giambattista Valli, Haider Ackermann, Olivier Theyskens and Carolina Herrera, it’s understandable that Serkan Sarier has picked up a taste for eveningwear with a couture sensibility.
On Monday in New York, Sarier presented his first solo collection under the label Brood, a 12-piece lineup of gorgeous washed, silk taffeta dresses that counter classic couture silhouettes with sporty details. “When I started with Mr. Ungaro, I saw how elaborate and time-consuming it was to construct a couture piece,” says Sarier, who grew up in Germany and graduated from Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 2002. “The question with Brood was, how can you create volume and evoke a couture sensibility without that labor, and with a more spontaneous and effortless approach?”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
