Meet the Rihanna-Approved Denim Designer Who’s Bound to Blow Up

Jessica Schiffer

What better way to ensure your success than working with everyone's favorite material—denim—and having your clothes spotted on the likes of Lady Gaga and Rihanna? Well, we sure can’t think of one, so it appears that designer Matthew Dolan is on the money.

Fresh out of the esteemed MFA Fashion Design and Society program at Parsons, his extra-oversized jackets and pants have quickly caught the eye of our favorite sartorial risk-takers, and we have a feeling Dolan fever will spread very soon. Having grown up all over the globe—everywhere from Massachusetts to Sydney, Australia—the designer seems to have a finely trained eye for what women, regardless of their hometown, want. The answer? Denim, always. But these days we like it to be edgy and cool, less about body-hugging and more about comfort and ease. "There is something so much cooler, something much more sexy about a piece that is too big—it has way more attitude," Dolan has said. And we couldn’t agree more!
