Market Watch: Duckie Brown's Hand-Embroidered Sweater

Zandile Blay

The sweater I'm wearing is not just any old sweater -- it's a special edition piece from Duckie Brown's spring collection. What makes this men's sweater so special, beyond the chic boxy fit, is that its the culmination of 100 hours of labor. Yes, it took 100 hours to create this hand-embroidered sweater. From start to finish, this piece was created by one artisan using fine threads and fabrics sourced from all over the world. The result is a slightly boxy shape that sits loosly on the arms and torso. There's only one on the market, but custom colors and sizes are available upon request. For details call (212) 226-5507.
