DDUGOFF is a young New York label designed by Daniel DuGoff, who previously put in time at Patrik Ervell, so you already know there's real a pedigree there. F/W 15 is only his third season designing a collection on his own and the first we'd seen in person. You can see some of the Ervell influence here, especially in tee-like popovers with tiny, hidden zippers, the large pocketed, hooded jackets and quilting details on some of the outerwear. DuGoff's choice of colors is extremely on point as well. The typical navy, taupe and camel tones are there, but he also throws in a couple '60s-esque shades with a deep teal and an olive brown that works well on corduroy pieces. They look like shades you're more likely to find lining the racks of a vintage store than on the runway and I mean that as a compliment—an unfamiliar familiarity if there ever was one. The line is small, but well-measured and nothing feels out of place, sticking in line with a sort of off-beat staples mentality. The long bombers, complete with a throat closure and paneled quilting, and a long overshirt that's both tech and timeless makes the F/W 15 collection look just futuristic enough to be some of the best clothing you'll hopefully be wearing this time next year.
