Favorite Five: Perry Ellis by Duckie Brown Fall 2013
Perry Ellis by Duckie Brown Fall 2013 is a collection inspired by camo, but not of camo. Like any good union of creative talent, Daniel Silver and Stephen Cox rarely agree—Silver was for using camo as an integral part of the Fall 2013 collection, Cox was not. Silver had a ten year old swatch of camo lying around and they both decided to develop it for the collection, though agreed not take it to the same apex of repetition they did for khaki in Spring 2013. Rather it served as a starting off point in creation, though in the show appearing as the closing statement. From this special camo, they got brown, eggplant, grey, olive, “moutard,” and the opening track to the show, the theme song to Deliverance. Also, beautiful bombers, which appeared in a patent leather and brocade paisley. They still injected Duckie into the Perry Ellis silhouette— drop crotch pants and oversized shirting—but the majority of the collection comes in much more easy to translate shapes crafted out of beautiful, high-end fabrics. Whereas the first collection delighted for it’s bravado of reinvention, the second collection succeeds in smoothly transitioning to the new direction. Here’s to the road ahead.
The classic bomber goes sports car/hunting man when imagined in brown patent leather.
Paisley is like camo for dandies.
The reflective and texturized mustard (moutard) colored nylon is as sleek as it is modern.
A perfect, casual & fashion forward every day suit. We'll take two.
In a season of camo preponderance, here's one print that's sure to stand out.
