Danielle Sherman found pre-fall inspiration in Akarova, a Belgian pioneer in avant-garde choreography during the early 20th century known for making her own sets and costumes, which featured bold geometric and wave patterns.

 

Interpreting the references via color and print, Sherman infused her classic American workwear silhouettes — car coats, overalls, tops with oversize pen pockets — with hand-painted graphics in an earthy palette. But what elevated the collection was the designer’s use of unexpected fabrics, such as a coat done in printed rubber styled over cropped, flared trousers with patent leather pockets.
