Johny Dar:
"Daniel continues to make shockwaves through his magic wand, and with his subtle sexiness. There’s a dynamic movement in the design of his jeans, and different painting techniques incorporated - hand-drawn geometry, and arrow patterns (which reminded me of Harry Potter’s signature scar) in blue and indigo that play with the cut and movement of the denim. And details in 3D metallic steel along the legs, like a code. Painting Daniel’s jeans was a steady ride, with a sense of complete confidence, no matter where the ride takes you."
