Matthew Adams Dolan, the Parsons School of Design grad who was born in Massachusetts but raised in Sydney, had one of the last shows on the New York Fashion Week: Men’s schedule and showed models lazily lounging on a bed being filmed from above while wearing his oversize designs, which have been worn consistently by Rihanna.
Dolan, who has produced his collection for a few seasons, but is new to the official schedule, said he wanted to bring denim, a fabric that’s known for being heavy-duty and durable, into a bedroom setting. Models were swathed in quilted denim capes, oxford shirts with elongated sleeves, flared denim with snaps on the side and long corduroy jackets with Seventies-inspired collars. The designer also worked with nylon and created a rain jacket with a stuffed waist tie and a pink shirt and pant set that draped the model’s body.
From the look of this collection, his profile will continue to rise and Rihanna won’t be the only fan.
