Each season, Daniel Palillo's collections serve as a mini-diary of his personal interests at the moment, and a peek into his fun, fantastic, and twisted alternate reality. Running themes and interest include American sports and comic books, and this season some cute but not so-cuddly characters make guest appearances. The adorable yet menacing Stay Puft Marshmallow Man of Ghostbusters fame is depicted in his alternative moods, and the Toxic Avenger is referenced in a comic/grotesque eyeball motif. While Palillo's clothes always incorporate crazy patchwork and cutouts, as well as three-dimensional structures, this season the designer also branched out into woolen knitwear, creating some of the most novel novelty knits I've seen in a long time. I wouldn't mind having a few of Daniel Palillo's monsters lurking in my closet.
