My very first official Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week show that was actually held in the tents was Duckie Brown's Spring/Summer 2011 collection. I was very excited to see Duckie Brown because I was all about their Fall/Winter 2010 collection!
The collection started of strong with long lines and oversized pieces that seem to be the "it" trend for men for S/S 11. I really liked what I saw during the first half of the show.

As the collection marched on the color started to come out and everyone knows I LOVE color. The question that I have to ask is this- How do we feel about drop-crotch pants on men (on anyone really)? I saw them in Duckie Brown's S/S 11 and several other collections as well. I think they look a bit like ninja pants or as Anna Farris in The House Bunny put it,"Looks like someone went accident in their sexy pants." I have seen maybe two people pull them off but please tell me your thoughts!

So even though not everyone can do a hot pink drop-crotch pant on the streets, I can still appreciate the artistic value of them in a runway show. I was still on board with the show but then things started to get really cray cray! I mean like if LaLoca Lohan was styling someone to look very MKO while her scram bracelet was going off cray cray! Now I am not saying that the pieces individually were bad but the way all of the very busy patterns were styled together made them hard to read.
You cannot HONESTLY say that if you walked out of the house like these two, your friends and your Mama would not be like go back inside and get dressed for real!
I just did not know what was going on or what I was suppose to be looking at. It was very Bananas In Pajamas chic. If you take the pieces apart you might be able to do something with them but you can't just walk out of the house looking crazy!

I would totally rock some of those jackets and even some of the shirts a part from all of other craziness. Duckie Brown, I will always love you! I expect to see some hot styling for Fall/Winter 2011!
