The Duckie Brown duo toned it down, in a manner of speaking, for Spring 2012. In place of last year’s neon colors and animal prints, Steven Cox and Daniel Silver sent out surprisingly demure monochromatic looks and floral designs. But that’s not to say that they played it safe—one coat was made out of a stiff beeswax-coated cotton, while several pieces were just this side of see-through. If the shapes and cuts overall were more, shall we say, accessible, there were nonetheless plenty of reminders that these are two of the most daring designers working in New York today.
