CIMG4792.jpgWe just came back from the Tents at Bryant Park-- checked out the Duckie Brown show. It was quite a departure from the design duo's signature color infused collections. Steven and Daniel used  palette of all black with just a hint of olive, eggplant or silver and the presentation, punctuated by a total lack of music made a real statement. The Duckies used some innovative fabrics, like coated cotton and rubberized leather and layered them with menswear classics like pinstripe, Prince of Wales check and cashmere. Silhouettes were progressive -- low crotch pinstripe trousers, oversized suit jackets worn under sweaters, slim but chic trousers. The duo also unveiled 2 jackets done in collaboration with outerwear legend Penfield. There were lots of dapper dudes in attendance. We've got pics of some of the coolest fashion statements after the jump.
