New York Fashion Week Fall 2008 - Duckie Brown.
Posted on 1st February 2008 by Alex Wright

Rachel Raczka braved the torrential rain and Alex braved the photographer's melee to bring you some early menswear coverage from the Mercedes Benz Fall 2008 Fashion Week extravaganza at Bryant Park...

Friday, February 1st, 1:00pm, Bryant Park Salon.

Weather appropriate, Duckie Brown's show opened with a tailored menswear covered by a black parka. The slim cut suits continued on to don unconvetentional coverings, black nylon backpacks and fuzzy voluminous sweaters (that scream "borrow me"). Quirky alterations to fundamental favorites that Duckie Brown is known for included flat front cargo pockets on tailored dress pants, long panel purple suits, and matte sateen boat neck shells under blazers. A shimmery fishnet oversize sweater might be more unisex than hoped for, but the man walking down the runway in a pointelle sweater knew how to wear it well. However, full length black crinkled trench out shined the multiple pakras on the catwalk, and may be something that you won't want to save for a rainy day.
