Adam Selman under his namesake label showed his first collection for SS14 in September, his second collection debuted in February and since has become a bonafide 'one-to-watch'. I always find it interesting to watch a new designer come on the scene; in Selman's case I found his first collection cool and interesting enough to keep me on the line. When he showed for Fall 2014 I was officially hooked. The 18 looks from the collection can be summarized as 'American sportswear with an edge', meaning classic pieces/silhouettes with an unexpected twist and sporty pieces such as a varsity jacket with luxe detailing like leather. More importantly, unlike many newcomers who try to do too much too fast, Selman stayed focused presenting a cohesive collection with a strong point-of-view.
However you describe it Adam Selman definitely has an 'It' factor. The designer''s pieces can be found at Opening Ceremony and Browns of London.
