What WWD said–

The Duckie Brown gent doesn’t compromise his urban style when he heads to snow country. Techy materials and bright, safety orange lent athletic energy to tweed and herringbone tailored clothing. Designers Steven Cox and Daniel Silver revisited the notion of protection, at times leaving no part of the body uncovered except a sliver for the eyes. Heavy overcoats naturally played a central role as the ultimate protective layer. That weightiness was shared by trousers and jackets that also were made from coat fabrics. Nylons and waxed cotton canvases heightened the feeling of protection and also durability, as the designers identified endurance and survival as optimistic values for the times.

Duckie Brown’s usual, more obvious experiments in proportion were restricted to accessory statements. Extra-long padded gloves, blanket scarves and knitted hats topped with giant pompoms heightened the bundled, wintry feeling. Duckie Brown always turns a sweatshirt into the vehicle of its seasonal decorative motif, which this season was a French knot, sort of a miniature version of the pompom. French knots paved many surfaces, lending them even more texture and weight to withstand the elements. For an example of survivalism, look no further than Cox and Silver themselves. The duo collaborated with Florsheim on shoes and partnered with McDonald’s for marketing support.

  1. this nonsense reminds me of my college art class when we headed to the museum to critique a work. i can’t tell you how much nonsense i wrote down just to fill up the required two pages. the only satisfying critique of art i found not in words but in more art.
