The Washington Post published a great story on the design duo behind Duckie Brown,  Daniel Silver and Steven Cox, entitled “Breaking the Menswear Mold.” “The designers, who launched their label in 2001, have an affection for bold colors, unusual fabrics, sequins, embroidery and droopy crotches. The brand’s distribution is limited, as not a lot of men have the wherewithal to dress up in an ivory organza blazer such as the one from the spring collection. But its customer base is dotted with boldface names, and in 2007 Cox, who is British, and Silver, who is Canadian, were nominated for best menswear designers by the Council of Fashion Designers of America.” The story also mentions the coming Florsheim/Duckie Brown Collection as well as notes on the cotton and nylon trench coat shown above. Haute Concept reports that it is a showpiece only and not for retail. Bummer.
