New York shoe designer Ruthie Davis has joined forces with Duckie Brown for the brand’s first foray into womenswear. The Ruthie Davis (Heart) Duckie Brown collection is a culmination of Davis’ aesthetic and Duckie Brown’s ability to blend whimsical sportswear with elegant tailoring. The line features two color-blocked pumps in jewel tones including navy, fuschia, magenta and olive hues. Rich, saturated leathers in unexpected color combinations are juxtaposed against Davis’ high-shine rose and yellow gold signature architectural heels.
In their second outing for Perry Ellis, Duckie Brown designers Steven Cox and Daniel Silver set the stage for a trip to the woods (or Williamsburg bar, The Woods), embracing a rustic color palette with touches of camo and wallpaper prints. For Fall ’13 the PEDB man holds restrained tailoring (think two-button and double-breasted suits) and leather bomber jackets in equal regard and loves his Duckie Brown for Florsheim monkstraps.
