new york shows hit town,
and we learned a lot.
we learned that the little label duckie brown is fast becoming an edge inducing trend leader.
what started out with an experimental label full of color and over-the-top whimsy
is now leading the pack with looks that push the masculine edge out there.
what excited me? affirmations.
the increased blend of formal and sport
was really well done here.
and without any need to throw in a "feminine" twist. (not that there's anything wrong with that!)
also, please note the re-emergence of tights. under shorts.
there is no denying this trend after the nyc shows,
but duckie brown executed it really well.
and following the silhouettes of tomas meier at bottega,
we see the volume in pants and tighter "chaplinesque" jacket.
all in all,
an amazing show.
and the first time this label made me sit up,
and take notes.
notes as in "i'll take that. and that. and that."
