NYFW SS14: Adam Selman’s Campy-Chic Boudoir Collection

By Robyn Roberts

September 6, 2013

For his first ever collection, designer Adam Selman took to the photos of ’70s era Cosmopolitan covers and a 1981 HBO special on supermodels for inspiration. Setting up a boudoir scene in the Algus Greenspon Gallery for SS 2014 New York Fashion Week, the designer displayed delicate camisoles with flirty tie straps and dainty skirts with suggestive slits that were offset by hockey jerseys, utilitarian jackets, and even jeans.

The collection gives nod to those soft-focus vintage magazine covers with shades of blush, cream, nude, and melon, all juxtaposed with midnight blues and blacks for a more laissez-faire appeal. The sporty elements of oversized backpacks and jeans give the designer’s debut line a fun and lighthearted appeal. A Pratt Design graduate, Adam Selman began his career assisting designers with various stage looks worn by internationally known musicians.
