This resort season, Daryl Kerrigan does the demimonde, coupling that Victorian-Edwardian decadence with her familiar punk sensibility. “It’s the last party on the Titanic,” explained the designer, who served up plenty of burnout velvets in sporty, fleece-lined jackets and raw-edged dresses, the latter coolly slashed to peekaboo effect. Even the abstract jewellike pattern on her draped frocks stem from decidedly rocker roots — it’s a print of a slashed T-shirt from Kerrigan’s spring collection that she photocopied and manipulated on a Xerox machine. Also in the lineup: Kerrigan’s signature stretch leather pants, this time done in a bootleg cut.
