Perry Ellis has tapped Duckie Brown to create a designer collection that will hit retail next spring. The line, under the Perry Ellis by Duckie Brown label, will be shown on the runway during New York Fashion Week in September.
“After rejoining the company back in October, looking at what the brand represented I knew that we needed something exciting to talk to the fashion community with,” said Doug Jakubowski, chief merchandising officer at Perry Ellis, a unit of Miami-based Perry Ellis International Inc. “Perry Ellis was, and should be, a first thought when thinking about designer men’s wear and Duckie Brown can take us to that place.”
