Guerrilla is the way to go for Duckie Brown’s Steven Cox and Daniel Silver, who eschew advertising and press in the promotion of their decade-old menswear label. But attention is being paid—this year, they were nominated for the CFDA’s top menswear trophy—and the past few seasons have seen them approach branding their way: with a series of seasonal poster campaigns around New York City. The latest, for their standout Fall 2013 collection, hit the streets yesterday. Photographer Matin Zad shot the photo, and the buzz currently surrounding him suggests that the Duckies have an eye for under-the-radar talent: He’s currently a finalist for the New Exposure photography competition, which is sponsored by Bottega Veneta and Vogue. Meanwhile, Duckie Brown’s Spring 2014 show takes the runway this afternoon.
The Spring ’14 collections kick off in New York on Wednesday, followed by the shows in London, Milan, and Paris. Before their new clothes hit the runway, we’ve asked some of the most anticipated names to offer a sneak peek. Per usual, it’s a busy time for all—designers and fashion followers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length previews at 140 characters or less. Our entire selection of Spring ’14 previews is available here.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS’ TRIBUTE AWARD
The fashion-show season—which starts with menswear in early January and runs through March, when the last womenswear collections leave the Paris runways—is indeed a marathon. And, according to an article in WWD today, it may get a little bit longer. Steven Kolb revealed that the CFDA has been discussing the possibility of tacking a New York men’s week onto the calendar in 2014 (now that London’s launched its Collections: Men, NYC is the last fashion capital without a week for the gents). It is arguable that the shows would help menswear sales (the men’s buying schedule is different than the women’s, and showing during NYFW in February, as they do now, can be a setback). However, some, like Daniel Silver of Duckie Brown (a look from his Spring ’13 collection is pictured, left) and Ralph Lauren, are skeptical that a New York men’s week could compete on the international calendar. Doug Jakubowski of Perry Ellis went so far as to say it was “unreasonable.” Even so, there’s always the philosophy that if you build it, they will come…
