Steven Cox and Daniel Silver showed some hard edges this season at Duckie Brown, offering their most masculine collection to date. “Our last one was soft and billowy,” Silver said backstage before the show. “This was more severe for us.” This well-executed effort was driven home by the use of dark and bleached denim jackets and voluminous pants, along with washed leathers in a variety of sharp biker jackets.
The British youth heritage of the brand was more clear than ever this time out with the well-cast lineup of tattooed models wearing red tartans and other plaids paired with chic bomber jackets reminiscent of Eighties English punks. There was also a play on volume that appeared in oversize Neoprene T-shirts, elongated cotton tuxedo jackets and wide-leg cuffed shorts.
Although still very youthful with a true London heartbeat, the Duckie Brown boy is turning into a sophisticated man who hasn’t lost his rebel edge.
