Pajamas were clearly on the mind at Duckie Brown today. Plaid oxford shirts were shown with matching billowing pants that evoked luxurious English nightwear. Even the models’ hair was reminiscent of an idealized, glamorous bed-head aesthetic. Tailored jackets in tweed, plaid, and tartan were paired with loose fitting sweaters and bottoms. The designers were conservative with color, however, sticking to mostly black and grey tones with splashes of navy and green. The only exception was a particularly bold purple and orange plaid that seemed rather out of place within the context of the rest of the collection.
Overall, designers Steven Cox and Daniel Silver presented many wearable items that remained conservative enough to satisfy the average men’s fashion devotee but at the same time attempted to push menswear out of its safe and familiar confines.The design duo will do it again this spring for a new audience, when the create a much buzzed about designer collection for Perry Ellis.
