No FAT What-so-ever: Duckie Brown SS16 #NYFWM

Duckie Brown
If you’ve been following this site long enough you’ll know Duckie Brown is one of my top 5 absolute favorite American designers. I’ve been raving about their funky androgynous designs since their first collaboration with Perry Ellis in 2012. For the first time in my blogging history I had the magnificent pleasure to sit and view a live runway show from the duo during New York Fashion Week:Men Spring/Summer 2016.

The New York-based design duo (Daniel Sliver & Steven Cox), took a note from Europeans, were lace shirts were all the rage and took it a step further making their spring/summer collection all about sheer tops. In a short but poignant show of 19-looks the SS16 collection played to the designers love & strengths of proportion and gender.

What I respect and admire about this collection and duo’s aesthetic, is they’ve done this style of creating in the past but now at a high fashion level has since gone mainstream. Always keeping the masculinity with the volume, structure and color scheme all remained strong enough to showcase the feminine looks. Like the soft draped raglan top in highlighter-yellow, the white oversize transparent tee and blackish brown sheer long-sleeve jacket-like shirt with the zipper up the front. Each ethereal top was styled alongside contrasting elements that were sporty and athletic in nature, like large and fluid pants, puddling on the floor and secured via a silken belt as well as the paper bag cut pinstripe slacks and multicolored sneakers.

This is has sport, sexy and sharpness appeal that is everything you’ll need for next year! I’m still reeling over the fact that I actually seen this show live. My look Du Jour is the finale piece- the all yellow look, I just wish my skin didn’t look baked in the color.
