Daryl Kerrigan was born in Dublin in 1964 and studied Fashion Design at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, subsequently moving to New York in 1986. Her early years in New York were spent working in film, where she co-designed costumes and wardrobe for independent features such as Jim Jarmusch’s “Mystery Train” and “My Cousin Vinny” starring Marisa Tomei.
In 1991, with no experience in the fashion industry, Daryl boldly opened a small store on 6th Street with a production studio in back. Friends would often gather there before heading out to legendary nightclubs such as the Palladium and underground after-hours parties like Save the Robots.
With herself and friends as her muse, Daryl built a name for herself through word-of-mouth and standout designs on the pulse of a city she loved. Daryl designed clothing for musicians, performers, artists and drag queen nightclub hostesses. She also began to develop the Hip Hugger Bootleg Jean, which drew people like Sonic Youth front woman Kim Gordon as well as fashion editors and stylists to the store and earned Daryl cult status in fashion circles. These must-have jeans, along with her rock and roll-inspired collections, earned her a CFDA Perry Ellis Award in 1996. Her signature pants and many other unique designs would later be reproduced around the globe.
In 1997, Daryl opened a store on 21 Bond Street in William Wegman’s former studio. Bond Street has since been home to housing her flagship store, studio and showroom.
Daryl’s maverick vision was evident in the shows which were legendary in fashion lore: An empty swimming pool in the LES; the space now know as “Capitale” when it was a working bank; the roof of Gordon Bunshaft’s Lever House; on top of a flatbed truck, in the Gagosian Gallery on 21st Street when it was a parking garage – Joey Ramone attended this show to hear his music played.
Today, embodies an aesthetic that combines comfort and style with cut. This, along with fit is what has kept loyal customers for almost 2 decades.
