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.

In New York later this afternoon, Duckie Brown will present their second collection for Perry Ellis.

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

Duckie Brown show their mainline collection tomorrow, and there’s definitely a sense of anticipation building, not just to see what they will come up with in their show tomorrow, but also for the debut of their Perry Ellis by Duckie Brown line showing on Monday. Part of the drip-feed of teasing details this week was this video on GQ, offering the briefest glimpse of the Perry by Duckie collaboration.
