Darryl Jagga’s line, 43.46 aggaj, recently showcased in New York. The collection was a mix of dresses, skirts and shirts in a combination of comfortable fabric. Darryl Jagga loves art and architecture and incorporates elements of both in his work. His inspiration for this season’s collection comes from the landscapes of Iceland. The name of the line, 43.46, is his mother’s and father’s birth years.
Darryl Jagga focused on fitting a woman who wants to be at ease in her clothing. His customer is the modern woman who is aware of the trends and uses them to identify herself. He used color blocking in simple shifts, as well as a generous dose of ruffles and gathers in sleeves.
One particular dress had two layers of ruffles at the waist and the hip, adding interesting detailing to an otherwise simple cap-sleeved dress. With the use of seaming and darts, many of the dresses were perfectly fitted and elegantly draped.
His color palate was a nude mix of grays and beiges with shots of purple, yellow, gold, silver and other colors interjected in dresses and coats. Sequins were also another detail that was well represented. My favorite item was a ruffled skirt that was fitted at the waist. It can be paired with anything and still look elegant.
