New York: Daniel Silver and Steven Cox are known for their daring exploits in turning traditional menswear on its head — a huge feat for an industry often dependent on repeats of past season’s successes. For F/W 11, the duo boldly put forth their version of minimalism in a collection called “Duckie People”. With nary a woven shirt in sight, volume, neutral colors and gorgeous knits made one of the strongest statements of the season. Even with the slouchy flannel pants and shaggy shearling coats, the laidback clothes had a surprisingly diaphanous feeling — quite the compliment for ensembles built on rich, nourishing layers.
