Shoe designer Ruthie Davis and menswear design innovators, Duckie Brown, have collaborated on a collection of women's footwear. This season marks Duckie Brown’s foray into women’s wear, which debuted in their New York Fashion Week show on Thursday.
The high-impact collection is a culmination of Davis's eye-catching aesthetic and Duckie Brown’s celebrated ability to blend whimsical sportswear with elegant tailoring. The Ruthie Davis x Duckie Brown line features two styles of leather, colorblock pumps in bold jewel tones including navy, fuschia, magenta and olive hues.
"I've been a fan of Daniel and Steven's work for a long time. While they are taking what they are known for in menswear and bringing it to their women's collection, it also has its own unique voice. I think that the Duckie Brown aesthetic is a really interesting fit for my shoes. I think both labels have similar clean lines and architectural shapes but with an irreverent edge. We compliment each other in many ways. Working with Daniel and Steven was a total pleasure, which I feel translates in my designs," says Ruthie Davis.
“We've teamed up with Ruthie Davis who does the most amazing shoes. Our inspiration for the shoes to go with Duckie Brown Women’s is the playfulness of children's toys,” say Duckie Brown designers, Daniel Silver and Steven Cox.
The Ruthie Davis x Duckie Brown collection retails for $698 and will be available on www.ruthiedavis.com this August.
