Adam Selman Fall 2017
It’s not hard to imagine Selman poring over those images, wide-eyed and agog at the possibilities of denim, even if his own vision today was rather tame by comparison. A pared-down denim biker jacket, trench coat, and short skirt appliquéd with red roses emerged to a soundtrack taken from another current obsession, the 1966 spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
Only a few looks in, though, and we were confronted with the reality of another and quite opposing sartorial symbol of the ’70s: disco chic.
Out came shimmering Lurex minidresses, midriff-exposing halter tops, sweater dresses, jumpsuits, and pleated party dresses. They smacked of a febrile Halston flashback, but in fact Selman said they were influenced by another Studio 54 staple, sisters Mariel and Margaux Hemingway. “You know how I look to the Hemingways for inspiration. They always do me right.”
