One of fashion’s most frolicsome favorites, Adam Selman, continues to gambol down the runway with his '80s FW18 collection. Each styled ensemble is bolder than the previous, partnering pop art prints and textures with nostalgic construction and rockstar glam en masse.

A notable piece of Selman’s trajectory and runway history is his consistent and fearless decision to include a diverse menagerie of fabrics and textures within each collection he presents. This season, the designer's range was wide as he included denim, faux fur and sheer fabrics that embodied every part of his '80s neon daydream. Every model that cascaded down the runway made sure to represent each statement piece or detail they donned, including vibrantly brushed ORLY nails bringing each look full circle. Selman also brought back his signature cat-eye shades--making his accessories connected to the heart of this retro collection.

In producing this collection, Selman notes he was most drawn to implementing a tiger print which appears numerous times in the form of sheer pants, coats, dresses, and colorful sweaters, making this collection fit for the girl on the prowl--one with charisma that abounds with rockstar flair. The Adam Selman girl is quickly becoming a staple on and off the runway, so it’s no surprise that this season Selman is giving them even more of an edge.
