Edun Resort 2016

Inspired by both sub-Saharan dandies and British Teddy Boys, Danielle Sherman infused her resort collection with boyish cool.

Danielle Sherman pulled from a range of influences for her Edun resort lineup, most notably the flamboyant Sapeurs, a sub-Saharan group of dandies. “They are known as the tastemakers of the Congo,” noted Sherman, who drew from their colorful and electric wardrobes by mixing vibrant pinks — a bold, ultrafeminine direction for Edun — against a mélange of ink-splattered leopard prints and tartans seen on jackets, knitwear, dresses and relaxed separates.

 
Another influence came from a totally different subculture originating in Fifties’ Britain — the Teddy Boys — which Sherman rendered via sharply tailored suiting, studs and D-rings, seen on everything from leather shift dresses to cable-knit sweaters made in Madagascar. Pleated, Twenties-style skirts and dresses — some styled with elongated, double-breasted jackets — infused the lineup with a bit of romanticism. Overall, Sherman’s diverse inspirations juxtaposed chicly, resulting in a collection brimming with boyish cool.
