We’ve posted about Darkhorse for some time now, but I finally got to meet Andrew, the designer, last week at Slate. Andrew has designed several solid collections but I can easily say that his was one of the best lines I saw last week. He’s really bringing it for the ladies with really clever graphics, embellishments and leather jackets. He’s brought back the beaded tees (yes!) and not only does it look (and sound) amazing, but it’s also a reference to Stevie Wonder and his braids – the shirt reads “Part Time Lover” – clever on so many levels! He’s also got one of the best “designer” t-shirts I’ve seen – a tee with a caricature of John Galliano, Alexander McQueen and Karl Lagerfeld (psssst Andrew, I NEED this shirt). That’s not all he has for the ladies who know their labels. There’s more Chanel and Louboutin references. I’m also a sucker for tromp l’oeil and Darkhorse has a really cute “purse” graphic. Last but not least, Darkhorse introduces some cut & sew pieces including a Paris hoodie complete with Eiffel Tower zipper pull and buttery soft leather jackets in candy colors and satin linings – I need one of those too. Check out the craziness after the jump.
