Edun Fall/Winter 2016

by The Daily Front Row

Danielle Sherman’s designs for Edun took a fresh, feminine take this season, perhaps partly due to the newness that comes with motherhood (she showed off her 7-week-old daughter on the runway after presenting her fall ’16 collection). She took cues from photographer Sharon Beal’s images of bird nests, introducing feminine dresses and separates, which she constructed from bits and pieces of contrasting materials—velour, satin, leather, denim, tweed, you name it—that meshed in just the right ways.

Sherman’s collection was also heavy with prints, from the more traditional, like fine stripes, to the more abstract, like buttons and Ahmaric lettering, the latter a design from Ethiopian artist Wosene Worke Kosrof’s “Ethiopian Grammar,” which spelled phrases like “Mother love.” The new direction certainly suits both Sherman and her designs.
