About the collection
PLAN # is a spring-summer collection based on the city Daniel loves and calls home: NYC. The geometric shapes of Manhattan's grid, combined with city-inspired colors translate the city's streets into Daniels' iconic, urban style.
The original 1811 city plan of New York is a fascinating map of what would become one of the most influential cities in the world. It is apparently so simple - but represents a hidden complexity.
The vision and determination that went into this surface simplicity fascinated Daniel - and made him realize that clothing also could have a power in simplicity.
The monochromatic pieces, with quilting work and grid lines, reflect two strong characteristics of the city - multicultural and individualism, with clearly separated neighborhoods of different cultures represented in the lines of quilting and edging.

Who is MUUSE?
MUUSE provides expert production, giving the world's 100 best up&coming designers a chance to launch their own label. We envision a world where everyone can wear pieces made with care, and designed by the best new fashion talent.
Thanks for helping us bring Daniel to the market!
MUUSE is on a mission to change the way fashion is promoted, produced and sold. Other fashion brands guess what their customers want – we let you decide.
We offer the pieces directly to you, which means that your money goes towards quality garments rather than retail markups. With MUUSE, you get to decide what deserves to be produced.
More about MUUSE Quality
In this industry it’s all about The 3 F’s: Fit, Fabric, Finish. Get these right and you have the perfect garment.
Fit - At MUUSE, our production experts and tailors go through three rounds of fitting to make absolutely sure the fit is right for every piece. Daniel's silk collection is snug and loose in all the right places.
Fabric - MUUSE is all about quality. Our production team is obsessed with finding fabrics that will spoil your skin. Touch Daniel's pieces made of the finest Italian silk and you'll wonder why all silk doesn't feel like this!
Finish - There are a thousand little ways big labels cut corners. We don't. We make sure that every button, lining, and seam is perfect. Our producers get detailed instructions about how to finish each garment, down to the last stitch.
We will ask for sizes from each of you individually at the end of the backing period and make sure to produce a range of sizes that fit our backers.
Risks and challenges
This is not our first rodeo. Our team are seasoned professionals who have worked in production for years, and we've managed many full production runs of high-quality garments. Our Italian and Portuguese suppliers work for other luxury brands such as Marni, Missoni, Ann Demeulemester, Max Mara and Victoria Beckham. We work with the best and we know the snags to watch out for.
Still we know from experience that there's always the risk of delays. For instance sometimes getting specific buttons or patches delivered can take a little longer than planned, but if you pledge for Daniel's collection, we pledge to you that we will do our utmost to get your rewards to you on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
