NEW YORK — Daryl Kerrigan’s got her name — and her groove — back. At a recent party at Henri Bendel, where her line will be sold exclusively, her intricate made-to-order clothes were worn by eight long-time Daryl K supporters. The event was planned by The New York Times style editor Amy Spindler.
But while these new looks weren’t the cool printed T-shirts and simple hipster pants that made Kerrigan’s reputation and built her pre-Pegasus business, they were true to the spirit of downtown luxe she pioneered in the early Nineties. "I got to do what I’ve wanted to do for years — hand-dying and hand-finishing all the things you really should do before it all gets out of control," said Kerrigan, who was mingling in the crowd.
Artist Cecily Brown wore a sharply pleated and folded corset over a hot pink top and dark striped pants, while Anne Christensen’s outfit was made from complex layers of white: a corset top, swagged miniskirt and skinny pants. "Daryl and I always used to joke that we’d never get married," she said. "We thought it would be fun to have a wedding outfit that you could just wear all the time."

“There’s a huge gap between the old way of doing things and today. It takes the youth to help evolve that. You have to count on the kids today to help lead you into the future. A lot of these retailers are stuck in the past. Communication is the biggest thing,” said @ronniefieg of @kith on the youth’s role in retail. On Monday night, Jeff Staple moderated a keynote session with Fieg and @syresmith at Assembly - a series of workshops, talks and keynotes addressing topics or issues in the apparel industry.

“You think your life is going to be a certain way, and nothing you thought would happen ends up happening. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be designing clothes and working with Mickey Drexler, and building something I’m deeply proud of,” said Jenna Lyons.
