THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF ALL THINGS DUCKIE
First there was the outrageous Duckie, then, last season, a much more serious Duckie. For Fall 2011, the two came together to create interesting looks that may not be everybody’s cup of Earl Gray, but are definitely worth a look.
Super-fitted jackets with high armholes were paired with hugely oversized pants, most of them eight-pleated, once again proving Steven Cox’s credentials as a master tailor. The colors were definitely subdued, mostly grays and blacks, with only the occasional light blue or wild print. This collection featured lots of knits, including one Cox and Daniel Silver called a “bruised tweed”, used in jackets as well as sweaters.
Their outerwear was art, from three-quarter coats to the season’s staple Pea Coat, Cox and Silver put a new twist on traditional favorites. For Duckie Brown, this was a way to look back while focusing forward, relaxed, from the hair, handled by American Crew, to the big, big trousers.
