Our reaction towards d.d’s recent collections have been nothing but super sized heart-eye emojis and contemplation of us being able to survive on ramen noodles for the rest of our lives. The latter is obviously not possible because we live to eat, so our only offering are stickers that say a thousand words better than actual words. The ‘défilé IV’ collection was inspired by the works of Georges Seurat, a post-impressionist painter from France who popularised the pointillism technique in his art. Seurat’s effect towards d.d’s designer is noticeable within the intricate details each garment embodies — from its use of lace to vibrant prints. We’re particularly fond of the jackets this time around — specifically its bombers — and the neoprene slit jester trousers, because what’s not to love about pants that have a knee-high slit on one side?
There are a lot of easy-to-layer pieces this season, which will essentially highlight the wearer’s creativity and expression, making the clothes that much more interesting to look at. ‘défilé IV’ also marks the first collection since d.d’s rebranding from ‘dude & the duchess’ to ‘d.d collective’. The brand decided to rework its image and aesthetic after seven years, yet still maintains its vibe of being a street-cool label.
