Fashion designers Steven Cox and Daniel Silver presented their Duckie Brown Spring Summer 2014 menswear fashion show on September 6, during New York Fashion Week Spring 2014. The runway unveiled their thirty look "My Duckie" collection. The collection contains traditional masculine pieces such as bomber jackets, long overcoats and trousers, in addition to the duo's continued admiration for items not typically considered manly such as aprons and halter sweatshirts. Furthermore, the designers pushed the limits of modern menswear looks several looks featuring basketball skirts!
The collection does provide a lot of quality choices for the traditional male who wants to add a touch flare to his wardrobe, as well as for the hardcore avant-garde fashionista. Also not every garment has to be worn at once. There is room to add and subtract. One of my favorite looks an oversized bomber jacket with white duke shirt, navy apron and navy narrow trousers. It's clean, elegant and sharp. A look that a little more hip and funky is a white Washi work jacket, and cream gym shorts. There is a cut above the left breast pocket on the jacket which is an interesting detail.
A pretty somber and quite look is dark grey bomber jacket with grey gym shorts. I can see a tough guy like James Bond wearing that jacket. The dark tone and simplicity draws one in. A very nice use of the basketball skirt is a khaki one worn with a khaki square bottom polo shirt, and khaki tab back trousers. It's daring yet wearable.
The makeup was provided by Menaji Men's skincare and its founder, Michele Probst. Shoes were provided by Florsheim. Cox and Silver certainly design outside the box. Click link to view the entire collection of Duckie Brown Spring Summer 2014.
