A Family Affair With Rachel Antonoff

by The Daily Front Row

Putting a welcome new spin on her collection preview, Rachel Antonoff offered a director’s view on her clothing; presenting them in a short film, Crush. It was a family affair, as Antonoff’s ‘rents Shira and Rick narrated the film, which centered in on how the duo fell in love. Jack Antonoff, the designers brother (also known as Lena Dunham‘s BF and Fun guitarist) and Gillian Jacobs took the roles of dad and mom with Aubrey Plaza and Mae Whitman showing face as well. The collection itself is quirky and playful and Antonoff explained to The Daily that she borrowed the “boob print, which was hanging in my grandmother’s bathroom” from Francine Dressler to adorn bra tops and high-waisted pants alike. But what kind of feelings are her Spring 2014 clothes supposed to evoke? “Everything having to do with having a first crush because what you wear in front of your crush is a big deal!”
