Amsterdam-based designer Daniëlle Cathari’s up-to-the-minute womenswear exemplifies a streetwear uniform on the cutting edge of the fashion zeitgeist that subversively repurposes classic design with an attentively off-beat originality. With the debut of her namesake label in 2018 she unveiled her creative modus operandi of bringing complementing contrasts together, a skillset that interfuses simple intricacies and unexpected twists with athleisurewear silhouettes. Cathari became the first student to win the VFiles runway show at New York Fashion Week in 2017, subsequently leading to an adidas Originals collaboration that saw her deconstructed cut-and-paste-style tracksuits instantly sell out, garnering the designer widespread acclaim (while still completing her Honours at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute). The first official Daniëlle Cathari drop—aptly titled “DC Drop 1”—was a complete embodiment of the Dutch designer’s playful vision of luxury streetwear that celebrates femininity as much as it does comfort. Weighty cotton jersey standards like t-shirts and panelled track jackets with matching lounge pants are constructed with a true sense of sartorial opulence. Ushering in a new era in women's streetwear, clean lines and retro accents advance flattering dresses and vests that enjoy a freshly-informed incorporation of logos and graphics.
