Perry Ellis by Duckie Brown SS13 Campaign

Posted on 8th March, by Colin Chapman in Collection review, menswear. No Comments

With fashion’s time machine set on AW13, it’s been all about winter recently, both in terms of the view out of the window and what we’re aspiring to wear in a year’s time. So it’s easy to forget that we’ve yet to experience Spring/Summer 13 and I’m now looking forward to putting to the test some of my predictions and advanced purchases as the days gradually get longer.


NYFW, AW13 Duckie Brown: turning ‘outerwear’ inside out

A week ago today Duckie Brown presented their AW13 collection in New York.

Later today, Duckie Brown will present their AW13 Collection. Always a highlight of New York Fashion Week for me, I love how their uncompromising vision of menswear confronts the more ‘buttoned up’ notions of masculinity being presented elsewhere in the City. With not one but two collections to prepare (their menswear line for Perry Ellis will be shown next week), not to mention their ongoing collaboration with shoemakers Florsheim, you could say the Duckies are busy.

And to heighten the suspense, those intriguing posters from around town and the ‘Duckyl’ flyer for today’s show.
