Filmmaker Lina Plioplyte teamed up with Duckie Brown's Daniel Silver and Steven Cox to bring us The Guts of Duckie Brown, a short film that follows the designing duo through the making of their fall 2011 menswear collection.
We recently attended a private screening at Norwood and absolutely loved the film, which captures the ups and downs of the creative process and the relationship between these two terrific men, who are partners in work and life.
"[Duckie Brown] is the perfect combination of absolute eccentricity and idiosyncrasy with a strong technical base," crows Style.com's Tim Blanks backstage after their Lincoln Center show in February. "They're redefining elegance." At which point Steven pops into the frame and says, "Oh, shut the fuck up" with a cheeky roll of the eyes.
But it's Daniel who has the last word during a post-show interview at Abington Square Park. "I think every day is a milestone," he tells the viewer. "Forget about the shows. Getting up and getting on with it—being in the moment and doing the best you can do every day—that's a fucking milestone."
The Guts of Duckie Brown is currently doing the festival circuit and will premiere following New York Fashion Week.
