Duncan NYC – Spring Summer 2021 Collection
New York City-based emerging luxury ready-to-wear brand DUNCAN announces the release of its Spring Summer 2021 collection with a digital presentation. DUNCAN’s fourth season marks the brand’s official debut as part of the New York Fashion Week calendar with a collection that focuses on the brand’s core silhouettes.
Founder Michelle Duncan worked with photographer Max Papendieck to create a film and stills influenced by the monotony of the past months at home, stuck in a cycle of repetition. The collection is about the exploration of the personal journey from the longest night into the dawn.
Duncan describes, “It’s an exploration on that exact moment when you finally snap. The unraveling and then the release. The rigidly repetitious becomes so unbearable there is no choice but to have insanity turn towards the light. You experience the release. Creativity starts to bleed out from within, thoughts become extraordinary and emotions catapult you towards a blinding euphoria.”
The film features an exclusive track by UK-based band Ladytron, whose music Duncan cites as a major inspiration.
Founded in 2019 by Michelle Duncan, American brand DUNCAN juxtaposes heavily tailoring with unexpected details to create timeless pieces using luxury fabrics and embellishment details. DUNCAN is built and designed for the female who is multifaceted, dynamic and complex in all areas of her life. She wears DUNCAN as a symbol of armor for the goth girl gone corporate who prefers her garments with a hint of after-dark glamour
