The Split-Second Preview: Duckie Brown

-------

The Fall ’14 Ready-to-Wear collections kick off in New York on Wednesday, and will be followed by the shows in London, Milan, and Paris. Before the 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 at 140 characters or less. Our entire collection of Fall ’14 previews is available here.

Duckie Soup

Daniel Silver and Steven Cox Ever since Daniel Silver and Steven Cox launched their irreverent menswear label, Duckie Brown, in 2001, many young ladies (including this one) have been a little jealous. “Why can’t we get a taste of Duckie’s cheeky, exaggerated wares?” they’d wonder while surveying the CFDA Award-winning designers’ blousy tunics, tartan prints, and elegant jackets. Well, girls, you needn’t continue your green-eyed ways. Today, Silver and Cox announced that they’ll be showing ten womenswear looks when they present their menswear collection at New York fashion week this February. “Duckie Brown has always been inspired by traditional men’s tailoring, and, as designers, we¹re always inspired by womenswear. So the collection will be a reflection of that,” Silver told WWD. “I’m nervous like I was at the beginning of Duckie Brown, and that’s nice,” added Cox. Given their penchant for gender bending (they’ve sent more than a few boys in skirts down the runway), we think that, when it comes to womenswear, the pair will take like ducks to water.

Duckies in the Wild

Duckie Brown's Fall 2013 guerrilla campaign

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.
