Duckie Brown Fall 20008
In today’s economic climate there are not many designers who can afford to experiment in new designs in the hopes that editors and buyers will take hold, these are rough times that lay ahead for the retail industry.
With a 20 piece collection from Duckie Brown for Fall 2008 it seems these factors might be at play with a tightly edited collection. It’s a safe collection with no color splashes and everything done in black, there’s nothing wrong with that.
The clothes are straightforward and pull no punches. Pants are cut and tailored well and looked great on the models who walked the runway along with everything else that was shown.
By far one of the coolest men’s shows that we saw with no music and just the sound of camera shutters clicking away. It’s a smart way to focus buyers and editors on the clothing and it worked perfectly.
