Silky transparent tops and oversized waist high trousers were all a part of Duckie Brown’s serene zen Master fluid narrative at the Spring-Summer 2016 mens shows in New York. The collection featured voluminous, elegant cut trousers, sheer nipple baring shirts and supple oversize jackets that referenced the androgynous gender bending aesthetic pioneered by Daniel Silver and Steven Cox.
The somewhat effeminate, slouchy silhouettes enveloped the slender male models who sported ultra-light translucent shirts made from organza, crepe de chine and charmeuse worn over loosely cut trousers cinched at the waist paper bag style. “They’re just 48-inch trousers with the waists cinched in, worn with M1 bombers and flight jackets,” said Daniel Silver. The oversized trousers appeared delicate and free flowing, giving the models an airy like walk that looked like a dream. Their soft, unlined construction
helped reinforce a relaxed and carefree spirit.
For evening, the luxe lounge wear aesthetic was given a clean modern, update . Shirts came decorated with zippers and graphic lines running vertically and horizontally along the seams of an enlarged front pocket, and were worn cuffed at the sleeves. While, the oversized trousers appeared delicate and free flowing, giving the models an airy like walk that looked like a dream. An ultra slouchy electric yellow draped suit appeared nearly impractical, due to it’s size. The voluminous silhouettes contributed to a chic lineup that emphasized chic, simple dressing. Trousers were high-waisted and slouchy, while windbreakers and zipped short jackets carried out the season’s theme of lightness in soft, airy, fluid silhouettes.
